Rihanna made a surprise appearance during the rapper’s Saturday show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, treating fans to the duo’s collaboration “Work” before the Barbados beauty did a rendition of her song “Bitch Better Have My Money.”
However, the highlight of the performance was when Drake made another profession of love that sent Aubrhi shippers into a frenzy.
As Rihanna gives her man a hug from behind, Drake tells the crowd, “I pray that you find somebody that holds you down like this woman right here.”
The rapper later referred to his lady as “incredible, beautiful [and] talented.”
“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” Drake said, before awarding Rihanna the Video Vanguard Award and embracing her with a kiss on the cheek. “She’s one of my best friends in the world. She’s a living breathing legend in our industry.”
After the VMAs, Rihanna and Drake, 29, spent the next few days going on intimate dinner dates in New York City.
The duo even got matching tattoos of a camo-print shark believed to be modeled after a stuffed animal Drake gifted to Rihanna after a trip to the aquarium earlier this summer.
