Work, Rihanna! She looked amazing when she took the Brit Awards stage for a much-anticipated performance of her hits ‘Work’ and ‘Consideration.’ Of course, the crowd went crazy for RiRi, but not just because she looked great — Drake made a surprise appearance!
Could Rihanna be any more flawless? After not making it to her Grammy performance, the 28-year-old singer blew everyone away at 2016 Brit Awards. But after starting off her performance with “Consideration,” she made her comeback even more epic when she brought out Drake for their duet “Work”…and she twerked all over him! Talk about the best surprise EVER!
As RiRi belted out “Consideration,” she had everyone in London’s 02 Arena on their feet. She looked as incredible as she sounded, sporting an all-white outfit featuring a long-sleeved crop top, frilled pants, and heeled boots. Those pants really accentuated her booty shakin! As if the crowd wasn’t going crazy enough for RiRi when she started her hit “Work,” all of the sudden Drake showed up — and everyone lost their minds! Watch the Brit Awards live stream here!
RiRi and Drake were flirty as ever while they rocked the stage together, looking totally intimate and adorable. And when Drake got close, Rihanna couldn’t help but twerk on him! As much as they deny that there’s anything going on between them, they certainly have some major chemistry. Drake even bowed down to RiRi as if she were his queen!
While Drake’s appearance was totally unexpected, it wasn’t super surprising to see these two get as down and dirty as they did. The pair just released their steamy music video for “Work,” and it’s basically one big twerking and grinding fest! Plus, Rihanna totally bares her nipples in the vid, so clearly she’s super comfortable being so sexual with Drake. Just date already, would you guys?!
Considering it has been four years since we’ve seen Rihanna take the Brits stage, this performance was a huge deal for RiRi and her Navy alike…especially since Drake showed up! But it wasn’t just the long wait that had fans eager to see Rihanna performing — they were nervous she wasn’t even going to make it to the show. Rihanna was set to perform at the Grammys on Feb. 15, but cancelled at the last minute due to a vocal chord infection. Poor girl!
Then just days after her Grammy cancellation, Rihanna postponed the first eight dates of her Anti tour due to “production delays.” Of course, all of these issues had fans concerned about her well being, so there was a huge question of whether she would still perform on the Brits. It’s an understatement to say that they were thrilled to see her there, especially since she completely rocked the performance!
Judging by the smile on her face, Rihanna was just as excited to be at the Brits. She was devastated that she couldn’t perform at the Grammys, and she was frustrated that she had to postpone some dates of her tour. But Rihanna showed nothing but joy on stage — even more so when Drake came stage with her — and that definitely made for one heck of a show!
