Whenever I hear news about Drake and Rihanna being in the same place at the same time, or working on something together, or just being hot in each other's vicinity, I am shamelessly that fangirl who texts all my friends saying, "Finally!" I have a well-documented past in thinking Drake and Rihanna have some of the most insane chemistry, as friends and collaborators, and I 100 percent think that they should have gotten together a long, long time ago. In celebration of the recent rumors that they are finally dating (for real, for real), here are nine reasons why Drake and Rihanna would actually make an really amazing couple.
The two singers are no strangers to dating rumors. They have been rumors about them dating on-and-off since 2009. While the exact details of their romantic relationship throughout the years has usually remained a mystery, they have certainly used their intense chemistry to collaborate in their music many times. Recently rumors started up again when Drake joined Rih on stage at her Manchester show, telling the crowd, "Shout out to the most beautiful, talented woman I've ever seen. She goes by the name of Rihanna... I'm gettin' my heart broken."
Fans starts freaking out, and E! News soon reported that Drake and Rihanna were dating again, after being spotted out in about in London together, and that his feelings never went away. Well, I choose to believe this news, so here are the reasons why Drake and Rihanna are my OTP.
1. First Things First, They Look Perfect Together
There is not much more to say about that.
2. They Have A Strong Friendship
They have been rumored to be dating since 2009, but in between all of those rumors, Drake and Rih have maintained a strong friendship. While on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in May 2016, DeGeneres tried to get Drake to spill on the details of their relationship, but he cheekily replied, "That's friendship at its finest right there." This could mean so many things!
3. They Both Understand Busy Schedules
Both musicians have been in the business for a very long time and they know how to manage life on the road and in studios. It would be very difficult for either of them to get serious with anyone who wasn't in the industry, considering they're two of the biggest selling artists of this decade. Plus, no one can really understand their struggles like other artists.
4. They Can Keep Working Together To Be Close
I think one of the most beneficial parts of them finally getting together as a couple would be that they could always work on some songs to get quality time together. They've already had tons of tracks together, and almost all of them have been major hits, so it seems like a very good deal for everyone involved.
5. Their Chemistry Is Palpable
Look at the way they look at each other!
6. Drake Worships Her
Alright, so I know relationships are a two-way street and both parties should be involved equally, but Drake has openly worshipped Rihanna for so many years, you just know he is waiting for his chance to prove to her that he's the one.
7. They Are Supportive Of Each Other
Drake had no issue gushing about Rih while on stage in Manchester and throughout the years, they've applauded each other for their accomplishments in the business, both with and without each other.
8. They Both Are Close To Their Families
Rih is often pictured with her mom and her younger brothers, and Drake is infamous for his adorable relationship with his mom, Sandy, so it's a good sign that they both hold family important to them.
9. Their Children Would Be Talented & Beautiful
Can you even begin to imagine what Drake and Rihanna's would look like? They were both adorable children, and I know I'm getting way ahead of myself, but their kids would definitely be ruling Hollywood in 2040.
You see, it's scientific fact that they should be together. Let it be true!
