Before Drake’s brief Twitter affair with Nicki Minaj , the Toronto lyricist had a celebrity romance with Rihanna , whose last project he did unreleased work on and whom he was spotted smooching in a New York bowling alley.
The rapper recalled the incident on his debut, Thank Me Later, spitting about their dalliance and later saying he was Rihanna’s “pawn” in an interview.
Now the fire appears to be doused, as the two are reuniting for Rihanna’s forthcoming project, Loud, according to Drake.
“I just did this great song,” he told MTV News. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to talk about it. I just did this great song with Rihanna; hopefully we can do a video for it. I’m really excited about that.”
The two had a fling before Rihanna became involved with Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp. Drake denied his involvement with the singer many times, but he finally let loose on his song “Fireworks.”
“I was a pawn,” Drake told the New York Times earlier this year about his time with RiRi, which began with an invitation to pen a track for the singer. “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.’ ”
