Watch Drake Express his love for Rihanna

He Sent a Very Sentimental Birthday Shoutout

Though the former couple split up a few months ago — and he’s since been linked to Jennifer Lopez — the rapper shouted out to his old flame during his concert in Dublin on Monday night.

A fan caught the video in which Drake begins, “It’s somebody’s birthday today — somebody I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect for,” he told the crowd as they started applauding and screaming with excitement. “So, instead of singing ‘Happy birthday,’ though, we just going to do this in Dublin. Instead of singing ‘Happy Birthday,’ we’re going to set it off just like this…” He trailed off as “Work,” his collaboration with Rih, began playing.

If Drake’s birthday expression seems a little extra, remember that this is the man who declared to the entire world at the MTV Video Music Awards last year that Rihanna was “someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22-years-old.”
