It’s a longtime coming, but sources are saying that Drake and Rihanna are on the way to official coupledom. While on his “Would You Like a Tour?” tour, the pair have been spotted together at restaurants, hanging out in clubs and walking out of hotels together.
But this isn’t the first time they’ve been rumored to be dating. In 2010 on Rihanna’s “Loud” album she featured the rapper on her hit single “What’s My Name?” and their on-camera chemistry led people to think they were more than a video couple. The club fight in June 2012, between Drake and Chris Brown was said to have been provoked by Drake sending a passionate note about his relationship with the Bajan singer.
Fast forward to today where on various occasions both RiRi and Drake have said their relationship was platonic, but also hint at something more. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he called her the “ultimate fantasy” adding, “I mean, I think about it. Like, ‘Man that would be good.’ We have fun together. She’s cool and s–t. But we’re just friends.”
Essentially, the jury on these two is out. They may be buddies or they may be the next singer/rapper couple. We will say that if these two do date, they’d make for the most fashionable couple on the scene right now. Between RiRi’s love of high-end designers, MAC makeup collection and modeling gigs and Drake’s custom Calvin Klein performance outfits and Nike sneakers– we would only expect more fashion projects from the two.
