Adding more fuel to the rumor mill, Rihanna and Drake took the stage together in Paris to give a surprising performance for fans. While Drake’s Would You Like A Tour is still on a roll, it’s interesting to see all the time that he and Rihanna have been spending together while they’ve both been so busy working.
Marking the first time that the duo has performed the hit single, “Take Care”, the stage presence was surely something to talk about. Looking awfully comfortable together, it’s hard to not wonder if the flame has been ignited once again between the two despite the declining of rumors.
As quiet as it’s kept, looks like something serious was gonna go down on that stage had there not been an audience!
Take a look at the performance from the audiences view and a few additional shots below:

It seems crazy but at the same time it doesn’t. Consistently, Drake has produced some of the most rhythmically, melodic crossover Hip-Hop/R&B records of the past 4 years. Starting for many with the incessantly catchy “Best I Ever Had,” off his third mixtape ‘So Far Gone.’ Now, fresh off the release of his third album ‘Nothing Was The Same,’ few will argue that Drake has the Hip-Hop song of the year, with his anthemic “Started From The Bottom.”
But, is it possible he just very well might have the R&B record of the year, as well?? While we enter the 4th quarter, and begin considering the years best categories, this has become a topic of discussion on these streets. In early August, Drake released the second single “Hold On, We’re Going Home“, an instantly catchy tune co-produced by his partner Noah “40″ Shebib, and a virtually unknown Majid Jordan. The song peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, but has topped the R&B/Hip-Hop charts for numerous weeks. The record immediately grabs you with its old school drums, and retro background vocals, but Drake pulls you in deeper with his uncanny knack for delivering emotion, as he professes the addictive allure of his latest love.
It’s the combination of the retro elements, and still progressive nature of the record as a whole, that has turned this track into a favorite amongst many fans and fellow artists alike. Not since Lauryn Hill has an artist successfully tapped the ability to deliver such greatness in two genres at the same time as Drake is currently. While some will want to argue the record is not “real” R&B, they will need to realize we are not in a traditional era anymore, and adaptive progression by influence is what will keep things going.
Now you tell us … Could Drake have the R&B Record of the Year with “Hold On, We’re Going Home”?? Vote in our poll below:
Emerging indie R&B artist Ginette Claudette drops off a brand new in-studio cover visual. The singer/songwriter gets inspired by two of Drake’s latest hit songs, including “Furthest Thing,” and his No. 1 single “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”
As always Ginette delivers a unique rendition of the tracks over minimalist piano laden production. Offering a female perspective through her own experiences, and captivating with a syrupy vocal performance.
Check out the in-studio cover video below:
Drake and Jhené Aiko have great musical chemistry, and the two proved it once again on their new collabo “From Time” off Drake’s new album ‘Nothing Was The Same.’
There is also something especially favorable about the two artists that many burgeoning producers and remixers enjoy creating new productions out of their songs or vocals. The latest of which we bring you is Atu & Sango‘s 7 minute edit of “From Time.”
The already smooth record turns into a trancy and dreamy production, almost suitable for a relaxing spa treatment. Early morning or late night soundtracks have a new addition.
