There’s a new portmanteau in town.
Better yet: Drihanna.
Power rappers Rihanna and Drake (Work) are the new It couple, folks.

Witnesses (aka audience members) at Ri-Ri’s Tuesday night concert at AmericanAirlines Arena, the latest stop on her Anti World Tour, got more bang for their buck than they bargained for. Fans reported some serious bump and grind action when the D-Man popped up on stage for a surprise visit after the headliner introduced him as “Drizzy Drizzy Drake.” The crowd freaked, naturally.
Wearing a transparent sparkly jumpsuit, Rihanna twerked like the best of ’em while Drake enjoyed every sexy minute (no disgusted look went down like when the singer got sucker smooched by Madonna at Coachella last year). The 29-year-old Canadian followed her suggestive moves like a lap dog.
The two reportedly left the arena together, heading to the Edition Hotel in Miami Beach to keep the party going.
Is it love? Or lust?
Rihanna’s been a busy young bachelorette. The 28-year-old Barbadian born Robyn Fenty has a plethora of exes including (cough!) Chris Brown and more recently Real Madrid soccer player Karim Benzema. But Drake might be the real deal. The two superstars reportedly first met in 2009 at Lucky Strike bowling alley in NYC.
Drake (born Aubrey Graham) later wrote a song that is alleged to be about their encounter, called Fireworks, “I can tell it wasn’t love, I just thought you’d **** with me / Who coulda predicted Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me / Damn, I kept my wits about me, luckily.”
On his Instagram account, as “Champagne Papi,” he later posted a picture of himself as a kid (awwww, so cute) saying how much he enjoyed the evening.
