Drake was in Barbados last night as he relaxed in the tropical island for the weekend. He was with a group of friends as a fan captured footage of them walking at night. Many wondered why he came to Barbados, whether it was for business or simply for pleasure. Many jokingly started to say that he was trying to find Rihanna, as this is her home country. The two also split back in 2016 but he still expressed love for her.

Many thought that Drake was looking for Rih in Barbados due to various signs this year. In January, they were seen at an A$AP Rocky concert together and in March, they flirted with each other in DJ Spade’s Instagram Live. This all came after she split with her Saudi billionaire boyfriend, Hassan Jameel. Things haven’t gone public since these happened but with Drake, he’d always have time to shoot his shot with Rih.
Drake and Rihanna have also created multiple successful hits together. The first was “Take Care” from Drake’s sophomore album, ‘Take Care,’ in 2011. In 2016, Drake appeared on her “Work” record which was on her eighth studio album, ‘Anti.’ Drake’s last project was his ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ mixtape which was released in May and featured hits such as “When To Say When,” “Chicago Freestyle” feat Giveon, and “Pain 1993” feat. Playboi Carti. The last project that fans got from Rihanna has still been ANTI.
Reports have since come out about how Rihanna has postponed her rumored ninth studio album, ‘R9,’ indefinitely. This was a huge disappointment to fans as they’ve anxiously been waiting for over four years. At the moment, she just wants to focus on handling business venture such as her Fenty Beauty makeup line and her Savage X Fenty lingerie line, which has notable ambassadors on its roster such as Megan Thee Stallion, Normani, and Dreezy. These brands continue to bring in millions of dollars every year.
Hopefully, while Drake was out in Barbados, he was still going to the studio. At the time of the announcement of his Dark Lane Demo Tapes mixtape, he also revealed that his sixth studio album would be out sometime this summer. As of now, we still haven’t received any indication of when exactly it’d be out or any lead singles. There’s definitely no rush on his end though as he’s already had a very hot first half of 2020, which includes another No.1 single with “Toosie Slide.”
