Drake

Drake and Rihanna had the rumor mill buzzing once again when they were spotted partying at the same nightclub on Friday night. The Canadian rapper and Barbadian beauty stepped out to Hooray Henry’s in West Hollywood, fueling reports of a reignited romance.

Drizzy rocked black Timberlands and a red vintage Iceberg shirt from the Bart Simpson Collection (Oh yes, he did). Clad in all black, RiRi was joined by her BFF Melissa Forde.

With their burly bodyguards in tow, they exited separately through the back of the club moments after one another.

The night didn’t end there. According to The Mirror, the “What’s My Name?” collaborators hopped in the same taxi and headed to Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood. Drake shut down the club to host a private party, which reportedly lasted until 4:30 a.m.

Drake Previews New Material at NYC Club

French Montana and Drake

Drake took over club Griffin in New York City with French Montana on Monday. While on the turntables, he previewed two previously unreleased songs including a collaboration with Aaliyah (via Word On Road).

The late singer’s angelic voice can be heard on one track, reportedly titled “Talk Is Cheap.” Drake and his producer Noah “40″ Shebib were working on a posthumous Aaliyah album before backing out due to the backlash, but he was hopeful that one of their songs would see the light of day.

In December, he previewed what appears be the same Aaliyah collaboration while on his tour bus.

On the second song, Drizzy can be heard spitting bars including, “All white like I move thangs.”

The Toronto MC is nominated in four categories at Canada’s Juno Awards including Album of the Year, Rap Recording of the Year, and Artist of the Year. The awards will be held on March 29 in Winnipeg.

Preview his new material in the Instagram videos below.
