Drake wants to ''get romantic'' with women from his native Toronto.

The 29-year-old singer may be dating US tennis player Serena Williams - who was born in Michigan - but he wants to settle down in his home city with someone who truly understands his background.

He said: ''Most people I know stay in Toronto. I plan to spend the rest of my life there. The talk, the smell, the sound that comes out of that city is home to me.

''When I think about the girls I want to get romantic with, it's a girl from Toronto who knows what I'm talking about when we drive around the city.''

Drake shot to fame when he starred in 'Degrassi: The Next Generation' when he was just 14 years old, and though he eventually left the show to focus on his music, he now ''can't wait'' to return to acting and would love to turn his hand to movies.

He told W magazine's Arts issue: ''I can't wait to get back into acting.

''No one ever asks me to do movies, and, although music is my focal point now, I'd love to do a film. That was the life that I lived before, and it would be interesting to live it again.''
