Friday, Feb 10, 2012 9:19AM
Former couple Rihanna and Drake have linked back up to record a music video off the rap star's platinum-selling Take Care solo album.
A photo of the ex-couple and music video director Yoann Lemoine hit the Internet Friday (February 10).
Everyone who's anyone is in Los Angeles for the Grammy Awards this week, but Rihanna and Drake shifted their focus for a few hours to shoot the music video for their collaboration "Take Care." The two stars shot with Yoann Lemoine, whose past music video works include Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," Taylor Swift's "Back To December," and Lana Del Rey's stunning "Born To Die" clip. "I just shot Drake & Rihanna's 'Take Care' video," Lemoine tweeted. "Beautiful track, amazing artists. EDITING NOW!" He also included a photo of himself with Drihanna on the set. Back on the Grammy front, RiRi and Drizzy are both nominated and hitting the stage this Sunday; Drake as a presenter and Rihanna will perform with Coldplay. (Neon Limelight)
Known for their past romance, West Coast rapper Kreayshawn previously joked about their bond.
"No, that's not my boo thing," Kreay laughingly said in an interview. "We're cute. Like I said, me and him, we're both cute. We could be cute. But, I'm not trying to snatch Rihanna's [boo] or nothing like that. You know, I don't know if the rumors is true, I'm a busy woman anyway...People are already tweeting the 'Drake and Kreayshawn, uh-oh, Rihanna's with him.' I'm like, people can't be friends? Whatever. He cute. I'm cute. I just feel like me and him relate a lot just from coming up quick..." ("Mina SayWhat")
Last summer, reports of Drizzy and RiRi entering an adult retail shop laned online.
exy rocker RIHANNA turned the kinky portrayal of sadomasochist s*x on her chart-topping "S&M" into reality, whispers My Canuck Spy - who spotted Star Vixen hand-in-hand with old flame DRAKE at Wicked Wanda's Adult Emporium in Ottawa, where she cracked whips, then spent $1,000-plu$ on handcuffs, a riding crop/whip, bustier, pasties, boots, edible undies, collar and leash, spandex hood and...a chocolate p*nis! Said the salesbabe: "Have fun." Purred Rihanna: "I always do!" (National Enquirer)
Earlier the same month, speculation of a mid-June romantic encounter between Drizzy and RiRi caught heat.
Drake and Rihanna got pretty damn close at a nightclub in Canada a few weeks ago ... snuggling up at a private booth -- but does the pic back up the rumor that they're really more than friends? The photo was shot at the Buonanotte Supperclub in Montreal on June 12 right around midnight. One source inside the club tells us the two were "all over each other" the entire evening ... and were even seen making out. Rihanna has denied the two are an item -- but after seeing this pic, you buyin' what she's sellin'? (TMZ)
