In Miami, Drake called Rihanna “the real queen” when he joined her onstage for their No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Work.” But in Toronto tonight she was “the greatest woman I’ve ever known in my entire life.”
Dressed in a “Views” hoodie, Drake came out partway through their smash collab to take up his vocal part and engage in some flirtatious twerking. Toronto’s native son, whose new album Views From The 6 is scheduled to drop April 29, was then left alone onstage to perform new track “One Dance,” then 2015’s “Jumpman.”
When he was done, he said, “One more time, if you would do me the favor and make some noise for the greatest woman I’ve ever known in my entire life. She goes by the name of Rihanna…I go by the name of Drake and If there’s one thing I care about it’s everybody in this motherf—ing building…Views From The 6, April 29 — I put my heart in this shit for you.”
This was Rihanna’s second of two shows at the Air Canada Centre, as part of her Anti World Tour, which began March 12 in Florida and ends Aug. 21 in England. Just a few days after tour kick-off, Drake was her surprise guest in Miami.
