Rihanna Congratulates Drake On 'Excellent' New Album 'Nothing Was The Same'

Rihanna made a bold move on Instagram this week by praising Drake's new album 'Nothing Was The Same,' proving they are still on good terms despite their turbulent dating history.

The 'Diamonds' singer and Canadian rapper dated briefly in 2009 soon after he had signed his record deal with Young Money and they have been linked to one another since, with their romance even said to be the catalyst for Drake's brawl with her ex Chris Brown last year.

The Bajan beauty took to Instagram to share her love for Drake's newest album writing alongside a photo of the album cover: “Congratulations @champagnepapi Excellent work!!#NWTS.”

It's not the first time the 'Stay' singer has praised Drake's work this year - back in August when the rapper released his single 'Hold On We're Going Home' Rihanna tweeted lyrics from the song.

“Cuz you're a good girl and you know it!” she wrote before responding to a fan who continued the lyrics saying: “@_Vaun: I want your high love and emotion endlessly… RT @rihanna: I got my eyes on you..' My new fave record, period.”

Drake's third studio album 'Nothing Was The Same' debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart this weekend and has already shifted more than 658,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan.
