Drake and Rihanna may have gone their separate ways when it comes to love, but the pair has reunited for a new collaboration. The Young Money rapper spilled the beans about their secret duet during a recent interview.
Drake had reportedly written for Rihanna in the past, but the material did not make her album. He was careful not to give away too much about their latest collabo, which will likely appear on Rihanna’s new album Loud, due November 16. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to talk about that actually.”
The young stars were rumored to have dated in the past, but their brief relationship left Drizzy brokenhearted. “I was a pawn,” he told The New York Times. “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, ‘Wow, this feels terrible.'”
When asked earlier this year who she would like to work with, RiRi said Drake was at the top of her list. “He’s really, really talented, and I think he’s one of the illest lyricists out there right now, so I would love to work with him,” she told E!’s Ben Lyons.
Loud has already produced a hit with lead single “Only Girl (In the World),” which jumped 75-3 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, selling 249,000 downloads in its first week.
