Rihanna, the 25-year-old pop star, expressed her love for rapper Drake's music recently.
The singer recently tweeted some lyrics from Drake's single, "Hold On, We're Going Home."
"I got my eyes on you," she tweeted recently. "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 Rihanna's 24-year-old ex-boyfriend and singer Chris 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, the Canadian rapper born Aubrey Drake Graham, detailed why Brown had an issue with the former's relationship with Rihanna.
"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."
Brown addressed his own issues with Drake during an appearance on the New York City radio "The Breakfast Club" earlier this year.
"At the end of the day I don't hash on ... dudes can say whatever. I'm not a rapper. I'm gonna say what I want, like whose gonna beat me up," Brown questioned. "Honestly I think he's a cool dude as far as music. It's not even a thought, people just don't like certain people. He don't like me and I don't like him."
