Drake and Rihanna's recent collaborations could be a result of them reigniting the flames -- and not just for show.
After continuing their storied run of collabs with two brilliant tracks this year -- "Work," which spent eight weeks at No. 1 and, just recently, the VIEWS standout "Too Good" -- rumors now suggest that the chemistry between Drake and Rihanna might run deeper than the music. The pair got awfully close in the "Work" video, and RiRi has twerked all over Drizzy each time she's brought him out on stage during her current Anti tour. He's now shown up for three different shows, the most recent one being last night in L.A.
It was thought that the two superstars were pushing a romance within the context of their music for promotional purposes, but an exclusive source tells People magazine that Drake and Rihanna have been "secretly dating for months." After last night's show, the "Work" collaborators were reportedly spotted at the L.A. club The Nice Guy, where they were "dancing all night." "They were being very affectionate," said an onlooker.
In Drake's recent interview with Zane Lowe, which coincided with the release of VIEWS, he seemed to suggest that the chemistry he and Rihanna relay through their music isn't just a marketing ploy. "We're not just forcing the story," he said. "We have genuine energy between us."
Elsewhere on VIEWS, on the track "Hype," Drizzy waved off thirsty females by rapping, "You cannot be here right next to me / Don't you see RiRi right next to me?" If the rumors are true, it's yet another major win for the OVO boss. Before this scintillating news, it was reported that VIEWS went platinum in six days.
