Rihanna and Drake have fuelled speculation they have rekindled their relationship after they left a nightclub together on Friday night (07.02.14).
The former couple fuelled speculation they have rekindled their relationship after they were spotted getting into the same taxi outside Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood.
The duo, who collaborated on the track 'What's My Name' in 2010, tried to keep the fact they were together under-wraps as they left the club separately.
The 25-year-old beauty left first before the 27-year-old rapper followed her out and got into her waiting taxi seconds later, according to the MailOnline website.
An insider recently told HollywoodLife.com that the 'Stay' hitmaker began seeing Drake again late last year but they aren't ready to have a ''committed'' relationship.
The source said: ''They're doing what they do on the low, and they like to keep it that way. They fill each other's needs when they can, and that's how they're choosing to roll.''
The 'Hold On, We're Going Home' singer previously admitted in 2011 that Rihanna had unintentionally broken his heart.
He said: ''At the time it hurt, but she didn't mean to. I'll never put that on her. I was hurt because I slowly started to realise what it was. I guess I thought it was more.''
The R&B star got into an altercation with Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, in 2012 but the pair have since buried the hatchet

Young Money's Drake has offered an interesting take on fellow hip-hop artist Macklemore apologizing to Kendrick Lamar over winning "Best Rap Album" at last month's Grammy Awards in the new issue of Rolling Stone.
In Drizzy's opinion, Macklemore should feel no shame in dominating the Grammy Awards' hip-hop categories.
To put it bluntly, he thought "that sh*t was wack as f*ck." "I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better -- make better music,'" he tells us. "It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?" (Rolling Stone)
The mega rap star also said people should accept this year's winners whether right or wrong.
Drake notes that Grammy wins don't always go to the artist who made the best album. "This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether people wanna say it's racial, or whether it's just the fact that he tapped into something we can't tap into. That's just how the cards fall. Own your sh*t." And in the end, if Macklemore was going to start doling out apologies, he should have reached out to more nominees, Drake says. "To name just Kendrick? That sh*t made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!" (Rolling Stone)
On an ESPN broadcast last month, Def Jam's Fabolous acknowledged Macklemore as a great musician and noted the Grammys had unusual politics when it came to choosing its winners.
"I wouldn't say he's overrated. I think he's a good artist. I think he makes great music. And he's one of the new artists that's came in on the independent wave. So, I think he's definitely done a lot for that whole wave too as well. So, I think he's a good artist," Fab said in an interview. "I think he's more commercial and it fits in the kind of music that the Grammys celebrates and is looking for. There's guys who've had tremendous success who've never won Grammys. 50 Cent has sold millions and millions of records, he's not a Grammy winner because of maybe his style of music or whatever. But I think Macklemore fits in there." (ESPN)
Instead of complaining, K. Dot recently congratulated fellow hip-hop artist Mack for dominating the Grammys.
"It's well deserved; he did what he did, man," Kendrick said. "He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that's how it go." While Kendrick may have grounds to feel snubbed, he's hardly the first rapper to come up empty; hip-hop legends such as Snoop Dogg and Nas have been snubbed numerous times. "I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre," Kendrick said when asked if he thought the Grammys undervalued hip-hop (XXL Mag

As BMS previously reported, rumors are swirling that Drake "impregnated" stunning songstress Jhene Aiko while on tour. But do fans truly believe the secret "baby bump" buzz?
According to various other gossip sites, Drizzy may soon become a daddy!
One of Drake's "former homies" is telling folks that he recently hooked-up with 25 year old tourmate Jhene Aiko.
A "hot and steamy" affair soon turned into something more serious, and now Aiko's pregnant! A "very credible source" insists that it's true - Drizzy and Aiko have a "shorty on the way."
But Drizzy sure isn't acting like he's preparing for fatherhood - he's still meeting up and partying with Rihanna!
RiRi & Drake were spotted sneaking out the back exit of popular Hollywood nightclub Hooray Henry's nightclub on Friday evening (Feb. 7).
They left just minutes apart, suggesting they were probably having a good time together while inside.
rihanna and drake
Plus they left together in the same car.
RiRi was also hanging out with BFF, Melissa Ford.
So what's the deal? Are these rumors just bogus, or does Drizzy really have feelings for the "Diamonds" songstress.
BMS is looking into the pregnancy rumor, but sources are telling us it is not true, the two are just friends.
Drake has yet to address anything on Twitter or Instagram, so stay tuned...

Aubrey Graham, better known as Drake, is sitting comfortably on the upper echelon of the rap game. The polarizing nature of the amount of love and hate he gets is overwhelming, yet understandable. Drake is most definitely a very talented artist and, with the help from his friend and producer extraordinaire, Noah "40" Shebib, he has been able to create a sound that appeals to millions.
I am normally not one to be too overly critical about artists' lyrics, however, it would be impossible to ignore the elephant in the room. Sometimes Drake includes some lyrics in his verses that demand an explanation. Over the past couple of years, I have come across some lyrics from Drake songs that have either made me scratch my head or burst out laughing. I guess you could probably compile a list with a similar concept for virtually any rapper, but it probably would not include lyrics as funny as these:
"Off a cup of C.J Gibson, man I'm faded off the brown,
And I'm easily influenced by the niggas I'm around."
- From "4 My Town (Play Ball)" by Birdman Feat. Drake and Lil Wayne
Semi-clever first line, but I cannot believe anyone would ever openly admit that they are easily influenced by their peers, especially Drake. I have never been able to understand this.
"The one that I needed was Courtney from Hooters on Peachtree.
I've always been feeling like she was that piece to complete me."
- From "From Time" by Drake
According to Drake, strippers and Hooters girls are deserving of all the romanticism available in the world.
"She just wanna run over my feelings,
Like she drinking and driving in an 18 wheeler,
And I'd allow her. Talk about pussy power."
- From "Connect" by Drake
"I want your hot love and emotion, endlessly."
- From "Hold On, We're Going Home" by Drake
What exactly is "hot love?" Not sure I would want whatever it is in an amount referred to as endlessly. That also goes for the generalized term of "emotion" that Drake refers to.
"Yeah, and if you gotta leave for work,
I'll be right here in the same bed that you left me in"
- From "In the Morning" by J. Cole Feat. Drake
A man who stays in bed all day waiting for his girl to come back from a hard day's work? That's what every woman wants right?
"REMEMBA? MO'FUCKA! WORST!"
- From "Worst Behaviour" by Drake
"I used to go to the stables and get those kids to bet me
And I would always ride the stallions whenever she let me"
- From "In the Morning" by J. Cole Feat. Drake
Is it just me or is Drake explaining his love for ass by telling an anecdote of watching horses' asses as a kid?

The internet is a breeding ground for trolls and the perfect place to state any extreme opinion you may have, but as we all should know by now, internet arguments rarely end in anything other than insult wars and hurt feelings. So why don't we all try to get along a little better? Just because you listen to one area of music doesn't make you cooler than someone who listens to something else any more than being a vegan or spending twice as much on shoes does.
I'm sure we've all seen the phrase "Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj are ruining hip hop" plastered across YouTube comment sections, Facebook walls and Twitter feeds. Valuable characters and clicks that should instead be spent on promoting your favorite artist. Telling a Lil Wayne fan that what he's listening to is trash isn't going to make them like Tech N9ne. If anything it would stop them from wanting to listen to anything you've suggested. Maybe, instead of telling people their favorite artist is trash, you should tell them why you like Tech N9ne and why they might do too. They'll be more open to listening to them and they probably won't think you're a complete tool.
I've been in situations where someone will say something like "Drake is the best rapper alive" and naturally my fists clench, my skin crawls and I grit my teeth. "This fool." I think "I'm about to go school this dude." So that's what I do. "Nah man, Drake is ok but have you ever listened to (insert name here)?" The crazy part is that people listen most of the time. When you're passionate and friendly people will listen to what you have to say. When you actually know what you're talking about it will be really obvious to the person you're speaking to. Educate them and then you'll feel better at the end of the day, putting one more person onto your favorite rapper.
Chief Keef made "Love Sosa", Riff Raff was on "Bird on a Wire" and Meek Mill released "I'm a Boss." Maybe they're bad examples, but the point is these songs pleasantly surprised me. Songs that were created by artists that I previously dismissed. Artists that are regularly dismissed by hip hop "purists. And, although I'm not exactly excited for 'NEON iCON', I will give it my best shot to listen to it with an open mind because maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. Much of mainstream rap isn't as lyrical or conscious as Rakim or Talib, but I'll be damned if some of it isn't entertaining as hell.
I get the animosity...I do...but trolling comments sections and being a snob about your music tastes aren't going to help anybody except your inflated ego. Give it a break. How about this year we collectively try to not to be assholes about music and just enjoy it?
