The 28-year-old star is reportedly keen to get the ‘Hotline Bling’ rapper onboard following their successful collaboration at the BRIT Awards last month, where the pair performed their hit ‘Work’ and the Bajan beauty enjoyed twerking up against her former flame.
Rihanna and Drake have been romantically linked for years, and as the two continue to dodge rumors of a romance, as well as rumors of the end of said romance, Rihanna has invited Drake to be a part of her “ANTI World Tour.”
“She is determined to recreate some of the buzz that was around for the BRITs,” a source told the Daily Mirror, via the Times Live, on March 8.
“Rihanna and Drake know that ‘Work’ is one of the highlights of the show and their on-stage chemistry is electric.”
Rihanna is believed to have a private plane on hand for the Canadian singer so he can easily jet off to her various tour locations around the globe.
During her upcoming tour, Rihanna reportedly will have her own private jet, which is expected to transport her from venue to venue as she travels the globe.
She reportedly will also be getting help from vocal coach RAab Stevenson to ensure her voice is in tip-top shape for the upcoming shows.
Rihanna was forced to cancel her scheduled Grammys performance last month and delay the “ANTI World Tour” due to bronchitis.
“It shows a level of commitment that Rihanna wants to get her set-up straight on the tour opener as RAab can work with her through any problems,” the source explained.
“She doesn’t want to have to cancel any more dates and she’s well aware of the scrutiny her comeback has faced. She’s working hard in rehearsals to pull off something special and talked about.”
Just weeks ago, a report claimed Rihanna and Drake were back together after a fling years ago.
“[Rihanna and Drake are] back together and Drake is totally besotted. His team have been teasing him about it but nothing can wipe the smile off his face,” an insider told the Sun in February.
Rihanna and Drake have been romantically linked to one another on-and-off since 2009, and after Rihanna’s highly publicized breakup from Chris Brown, which was preceded by a brutal assault, they seemed to get serious.
However, by the end of 2013, Drake had denied his alleged romance with Rihanna during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Then, months after his denial, Rihanna and Drake began popping up together once again and were photographed a number of times throughout 2014.
Last month, during Rihanna and Drake’s trip to London for the Brit Awards, the rumored couple reportedly partied together at the Libertine nightclub until the wee hours of the morning.
According to an onlooker, they were kissing “passionately” on the dance floor.
“[Rihanna and Drake] were like a couple of teenagers — snogging and following each other around the club. It was like watching scenes from their new video when they danced together,” the source recalled.
In the video for Rihanna and Drake’s hit single “Work,” Rihanna and Drake are seen dancing together, and at one point, he’s seen sitting on a couch as she dances for him while wearing a sheer tank top.
As the Sun reported, Rihanna and Drake’s Brit Awards performance was just as racy as their video and showcased a number of flirty moves on stage, but their London partying was far from over. Hours later, the two reportedly arrived at London nightclub Tramp, where they remained until the early hours of the next day.
Rihanna and Drake have remained mum in regard to rumors swirling about their romance, and since arriving back to The States from London, the two don’t appear to have spent any time together. The two will be back together soon, and who knows what might happen.
