Drake, a real Canadian Romeo, gave the clearest sign some flames never burn out last night, when he took a moment to gush about his ex-fling Rihanna before a stadium of people, as he used to do during the two’s heyday last year.
RiRi’s 29th birthday was yesterday, so Drizzy of course paid tribute at his Dublin concert. “It’s somebody’s birthday today—somebody I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect for,” he told the audience.

“So, instead of singing ‘Happy Birthday,’ though, we just going to do this, we just going to do this in Dublin tonight. Instead of singing ‘Happy Birthday,’ we’re going to set it off just like this…” And then “Work,” the song the two spent much of last year having grind fests to, came on.

Drake was reportedly hanging out with Jennifer Lopez in December and January—though two weeks ago, outlets reported they were over while he’s touring Europe…and now, Drake’s doing this. Rihanna has given no hint of what she thinks of it, on social media at least.
