Rihanna and Drake are remaining mum about their official relationship status, but are actions speaking louder than words?

After Drake’s public declaration of love for the singer at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night and hitting the event’s after party together, the rumored couple stepped out together again on Monday night. The duo were spotted leaving Nobu in New York City after an intimate dinner.

Rihanna, 28, looked casual yet chic in a blouse mini dress that showed off her legs, accessorizing with a brown belt that matched her strappy heels with fringes. She wore her hair in a high bun that showed off her large stud earrings.

The 29-year-old rapper sported a black and yellow letterman jacket from his clothing company October’s Very Own over a black shirt with khaki pants and Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit sneakers.

The pair had fans hoping for a confirmed love connection for the longtime pals and collaboraters when Drake presented Rihanna with the Video Vangaurd Award at the VMAs over the weekend.

“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” the Canadian rapper said before embracing Rihanna and going in for a kiss. “She’s one of my best friends in the world. She’s a living breathing legend in our industry.”

After the event, the two grabbed dinner with friends and family, then headed to N.Y.C. hot spot Up & Down for an after party held in Rihanna’s honor, where Drake “was literally shadowing her every movement and was just so affectionate and adoring the entire night,” a source told PEOPLE.

Despite the celebrations, the insider says Drake still only had eyes for Rihanna. “They were very secluded the whole night. The club usually clears out around 4 a.m. but they were late getting there so they stayed around after it closed and shut it down. And they left together. He was really adoring and cute.”
