It seems that perhaps rap royalty Drake and superstar singer Rihanna have twerked their way back into one another’s hearts as of late. What seemed like a flirtatious ploy to sell records has reportedly turned in to a returned romance between the two musical powerhouses.
Rihanna has been linked to a number of A-listers, including Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio, in the recent past, while Drake was making headlines for all of the time he was spending with tennis star Serena Williams. However, it seems that RiRi and the rapper from The Six have found their way back to one another following their performances together over the year.

An insider spoke with E! News about Drake’s affections for Rihanna.
“He still loves her and never stopped. Rihanna is the one that’s been not wanting to settle down in the past. They are having fun spending time with each other. Their music together got them close again.”
The rumored couple fueled these claims last night in London when the duo partied into the early morning hours only to return to the same hotel. The Mirror relays details of the stars’ Friday night out in London town.
“The duo, who have enjoyed an on-off romance since 2010, hit celebhot spot Chiltern Firehouse before separately arriving at the same hotel. Bad gal RiRi looked like she was dressed to impress as she made her way out the car, rocking a dark grey pencil skirt with a matching jacket, with just a pink bra underneath…Drake meanwhile looked stylish in an all black outfit with a leather jacket over the top.It seems like the pair can’t get enough of each other, as their night out came after the pair hit Tram nightclub together on Wednesday and Tape on Tuesday.”

The rapper even went so far as to make a surprise appearance at Rihanna’s show on Wednesday night, where he confessed that the “Umbrella” singer is “breaking his heart.” The rap star has collaborated with the Barbadian native on her recent track “Work” and also on the 2010 single “What’s My Name.” Drake spoke to the crowd hinting that Rihanna knows how to tug at his heartstrings and toy with his heart.
“Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I’ve ever seen. She goes by the name of Rihanna… I’m getting my heart broken.”
Although Rihanna and Drake never confirmed rumors of any relationship or romance from the time allegations began back in 2010, the two have been spotted getting very close over the years. The pair has most recently been spotted making appearances at one another’s gigs and have been rumored to be hooking up casually for some time now.
Although the rumors are flying that the two are an official item, a source who spoke openly about Puma’s creative director, RiRi, says “[They] aren’t seriously dating. It’s just for fun right now.”
An additional insider spoke about the pair’s status, stating “They hooked up that night they went to ‘Nice Guy’ together and stayed until 5:30 a.m.” So, as it seems at the moment, the beautiful and talented duo are just having fun and enjoying some casual company without labeling their current situation. It mustn’t be easy with the schedules the two have.
Rihanna and Drake are obviously seeing one another a fair amount and perhaps the lyrics from another collaboration the pair worked on together are finally proving true. Take it away Drake:
“When you’re ready, just say you’re ready/ When all the baggage just ain’t as heavy/ And the party’s over, just don’t forget me/ We’ll change the pace and we’ll just go slow”?
