The Rihanna and Drake “are they, aren’t they?” relationship is one of modern life’s greatest mysteries: the singer and the rapper have been rumoured to be dating for some time, but they both appear to shrug off such claims.

After collaborating together several times, putting on steamy live performances and partying together, neither seems to want to confirm that they are an item after previously dating years ago.

But now Rihanna has revealed that Drake has pulled off a seriously romantic move: he bought her a billboard.

When he extra ❤🏆!!!

That’s right – the Canadian hit-maker splurged on a massive billboard to congratulate her ahead of this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards, during which she’ll be given the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award – and Rihanna couldn’t wait to share it on Instagram.

The epic message in the sky read, “Congratulations to Rihanna from Drake and Everyone at Ovo,” along with which Rihanna wrote: “When he extra.”

Ovo is Drake’s record label, and the billboard was also completed with a picture of its logo, an owl.

So, are you guys sure you’re not dating, or is Drake just the best platonic friend a girl could ask for?
