It looks like a Kanye West and Drake collaboration could be here very soon -- at least that’s what a mysterious billboard in Los Angeles seems to indicate.

Drake Congratulates Rihanna's MTV VMAs Honor With Giant Billboard

The large green sign reads, “Calabasas is the new Abu Dhabi,” and includes the logos of West’s label G.O.O.D. Music and Drake’s OVO Sound at the bottom. Earlier this month at Drake’s OVO Fest 2016, West revealed that the dynamic duo might have a joint album in the works. Prior to that, OVO Sound Radio tweeted that “collaborative tape” between the two rappers will be released in 2016.

This isn’t the first Drake-related billboard to appear in L.A. this week. Ahead of 2016 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (Aug. 28), where Rihanna will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, the Toronto rapper bought a large sign to congratulate the diva.

"Congratulations to Rihanna from Drake and Everyone at OVO," the billboard reads.

The gesture didn’t go unnoticed by Rihanna. "When he extra," she captioned an Instagram photo of the billboard, along with a heart and trophy emojis.

 

When he extra ❤--!!!
