Drake & Rihanna Teasing Each Other On Live Comments
Drake and Rihanna were flirtatiously taking shots at one another in the comments on DJ Spade’s Instagram Live, after Drake trolled her about dropping new music.
The seemingly amicable exes—although it hasn’t always been that way—didn’t just sit back quietly and enjoy the show, though. Drake appears to have initiated the cutting exchange, by hitting a nerve with Rih when he wrote “Rihanna drop R12 right now,” in the comments of the live video. By “R12,” Drizzy is of course referring to Rihanna’s long-awaited upcoming album (that will technically be “R9,” not “R12,” as it will mark her ninth studio album rather than her twelfth). Fans have been impatiently waiting for “R9” ever since her last project, ANTI, dropped in 2016, but their demand for new music has increased exponentially in the past year-and-a-half or so. Rih has voiced her frustration and annoyance with The Navy (her fan base) for constantly pestering her to drop the album, so Drake’s little comment was sure to get a less-than-friendly response from her.
