Fine you caught us — we are huge fans of the romance that’s exploding between Drake and Rihanna. The two stars finally copped to their feelings for each other when Rihanna made a surprise appearance at Drake’s concert in Paris on Feb. 25. So before Drake and Rihanna take their romance back underground, we’re going to amplify our shipping to make sure they see that they’re perfect for each other!
Drake & Rihanna: Why They Should Make The Relationship Work
1. They have similar taste in strip clubs
This is very important to any relationship. In Nov. 2013, Drizzy and RiRi showed their immense, mutual love for pole dancers when they hit up a Houston, Tex. strip club two nights in a row. A couple that plays together, stays together!
2. They’ll “Take Care” of each other
Get it? Our love for this couple stems from their amazing collaboration on the song “Take Care.” Rihanna’s smooth island stylings mixed with Drake’s emotional verses was a recipe for success, and as if things couldn’t get even better, the two teamed up for one of the sexiest music videos of 2012 for the song. Watch that video and then try telling us that they don’t belong together.
3. But seriously, Drake really cares about Rihanna
Even when Rihanna was a taken woman (dating that other singer), Drake didn’t stop showing his love for her. In June 2013, the rapper told GQ magazine that he was afraid Rihanna was putting herself in a lose-lose situation by dating Chris Brown. Not exactly a unique opinion, but the fact that he was publicly voicing his concern speaks volumes.
4. Drake will even fight for her
Speaking of Chris Brown, he and Drake came to blows with each other in the summer of 2012, and though it’s never been confirmed, reports claimed that the brawl was over the Unapologetic singer.
5. They have a history
In Apr. 2013, Drake confirmed that he and Rihanna had a relationship while she was broken up with Chris. Obviously things didn’t last, and she ended up back in the arms of the often angry R&B singer, but the fact that she and Drake have found each other again after so much time tells us that what they have might actually be worthwhile. And also, this time around ought to be more successful because they know what mistakes not to make.
6. One word: chemistry
A source close to both stars told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Rihanna and Drake really have this chemistry and vibe with one another and that’s something that can’t be explained. They like each other a lot, and when they’re together, they’re both kind of infatuated with each other.” Sounds like a good enough reason to stay together for us!
7. We need another Beyonce & Jay Z
Seriously. Many thought that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian would be inherit Jay and Bey’s throne, but wouldn’t Drake and Rihanna make more sense as the true heirs?
8. They look cute dancing together
And now, the simplest reason. You can’t watch Drake and RiRi grind on each other at his Paris concert and tell us they aren’t perfect for each other. They were joyous, comfortable, and looked totally in love — everything a good couple needs to be.
So HollywoodLifers, do you agree? Do you think Rihanna and Drake should stay together forever? Let us know!
