Toni Braxton wants Drake to perform at her wedding.

The 50-year-old singer revealed last month she has gotten engaged to her partner and rapper Birdman when a teaser clip for the upcoming season of her TV show “Braxton Family Values” was released showing the beauty telling her sisters about her upcoming nuptials.

And now, the star has said she would love to get 31-year-old musician Drake, who is signed to Birdman’s Cash Money record label, to take to the stage at the ceremony.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror newspaper, Toni said, “I think Drake is brilliant, I would love him to perform and he’s on Cash Money so we’ll see.”

Speculation that Braxton and Birdman are engaged has been bubbling since November when the “Breathe Again” singer was spotted wearing a huge sparkler on her engagement ring finger at the Soul Train Awards.

But the news wasn’t confirmed until the teaser clip for her reality show, in which she shows off the impressive ring.

Speaking in the preview ahead of the new season, Braxton says, “I have an announcement to make … I’m engaged.”

And shortly after the clip was released, 49-year-old Birdman appeared on television to gush over his new fiancée, whom he dubbed as his “life” on the “Wendy Williams Show.”

He said, “T, that’s my girl, my friend, my family. That’s my love, my soldier, my life. She’s my everything. She’s my life. I love her to death.”

The “Leather So Soft” rapper also gushed over Braxton’s mother Evelyn, whom he said has been an “angel” to him since he began dating her daughter.

Braxton and Birdman started dating in May 2016 and first appeared in public in June that year at the BET Awards, but he played down their relationship shortly afterwards.
