Rihanna and Drake have collaborated twice in their careers, and the result has been one smash hit for each—”What’s My Name” for Rihanna, and “Take Care” for Drake. It might make sense, then, especially with collaboration albums being so much of a thing now, for the two to spend a little more time together on record. At least one half of the duo is down for whatever, as Drake talked to Capital FM recently about how he wished to spend a little more time recording with his old friend. Sez Drizzy:
I’ve always urged her to let me come and really work on an album for her, with her…I feel like I could do some great writing for her. Actually the Rita Ora song that’s out right now was originally for Rihanna…I’ve got some great ideas so, you know, hopefully when the time is right she’ll send me that text or call me up and say, ‘Hey let’s get in the studio for a month and make an album’, and we can do it.
Sounds great. No awkwardness, though? I mean…you guys were kind of an item once upon a time, were you not? All those long hours alone in the recording studio, intimate moments, song lyrics bringing back those old feelings…are you guys ready to handle all that? We hope so—then again, we kind of hope not. We always kind of liked them as a couple.
