Drake Gave Rihanna a Special Birthday Shout-Out at His Concert
Feb 22 2017
In the fan-recorded video from Monday, the Barbadian bombshell's voice can be heard blaring out via the recording as Drake dances.
Rihanna and Drake collaborated on the 2016 song, which became the chart-topping lead single from her eighth and latest studio album Anti. "So, instead of singing 'Happy Birthday, ' though, we just going to do this, we just going to do this in Dublin tonight".
"Work", his collaboration with Rihanna, started playing after his epic birthday speech was over. "Drake cares about [Jennifer], but he misses Rihanna".
The proof? Even after their breakup, and even after RiRi threw so much shade Drake's way for briefly dating Lopez, Drake still paid tribute to Rihanna onstage in London for her birthday.
Drake didn't attend the awards due to touring commitments in the United Kingdom, though Jennifer did suffer an awkward moment at the hands of the former couple after host James Corden joked about them dating in his opening monologue. "She is one of my best friends in the world", the "Hotline Bling" singer gushed. However, he did not mention Lopez, who was also attending the show in Los Angeles. "I hope they don't do us dirty". Drake paused the concert to ad-lib a sweet message that showed that there's still plenty of love between the frequent collaborators.
