Drake, the 26-year-old Canadian rapper born Aubrey Drake Graham, recently detailed his relationship with fellow musician Rihanna.
Rihanna, the 25-year-old Barbadian pop star, has been vocal about her rekindled friendship with Drake after breaking things off with her ex-boyfriend and singer-songwriter Chris Brown earlier this year. During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Drake detailed where things stood with him and Rihanna.
"Yeah, great girl," Drake told host Ellen DeGeneres about Rihanna recently "We had our moment and I'll always support and have love for her."
Still, he made it clear that he would not date her again, saying that he did not do "do overs."
Last month, Rihanna tweeted some lyrics from Drake's song, "Hold On, We're Going Home."
"I got my eyes on you," she tweeted. "Cuz you're a good girl and you know it!"
When one fan responded with more lyrics to Drake's record, Rihanna let it be known just how fond of it she was.
"My new fave record, period," Rihanna responded.
Drake and Brown engaged in a physical altercation because of their mutual acquaintance at New York City's W.I.P nightclub last year. Drake described the tension that still existed between the two young men because of Rihanna in an interview with GQ magazine earlier this year.
"Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there," Drake told GQ. "It distracts from the music. But he's made me the enemy, and that's the way it's gonna stay, I guess."
Drake detailed why Brown had an issue with the former's relationship with Rihanna while on East Village Radio's "Keep It Thoro".
"At one point in life, the woman that he loves fell into my lap," Drake said on the radio show. "I did what a real (expletive) would do and treated her with respect. She's not up there talking down on me."
