Drake & Rihanna Readying Joint Album?

Drake and Rihanna have enjoyed some of their greatest successes together.

Now, rumors are rife that the smitten stars are set to chronicle their chemistry on a collaboration album project.

More fuel was poured on the flames moments ago when a mysterious countdown website went live.

Full story below…

Upon visiting the aptly titled DrakeAndRihanna.com, folk are greeted with the following…

drake-rih

Hmm.

Sure there’s an OVO logo featured, but we’re not getting excited just yet.

Upon further investigation, That Grape Juice note that the URL is registered to UK address and there’s no sign of any label affiliation.

If indeed legitimate, it will – from a PR perspective – make all their theatrics at the VMAs make more sense.

It’ll also be oh so interesting in that may see them race to retail before Beyonce and Jay Z‘s alleged joint project.

Given Rih’s Roc Nation affiliation, would she even be allowed to do that? Should such an LP exist, will it arrive via OVO or Westbury Road

Again, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether this

    Iconic! this will be a smash hit. When will Beyoncé “no hits this decade” Knowles?

    • Sebastian August 30, 2016

      Or if it’s a joint album is totally passing 1 million pure sales in the first week. When will Beyoncé “not even 700K debut” Knowles?

      • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 30, 2016

        Rihanna fans still salty about Sunday night VMA’s. Continue to lick your wounds, meanwhile Beyonce & her wig snatching peri romance and her 8 moon men continue to sit pretty & unbotherd! Rihanna and Drake are a poor mans Beyonce & Jay-z. The real shade is Rihanna albums sales are p*** poor and the only way to can have 1st week sales is by teaming up with Drake lol! #Stay mad ??

      • Lana Del Fan August 30, 2016

        As a Beyonce lover, I found her vma performance lackluster. It looked nice, but vocally she sounded horrible at some points (especially during formation). Her bet performance was better.

      • Hmmm… August 30, 2016

        ?? But Rihanna hasn’t seen 300k? And she has EIGHT albums. You essentially just admitted that Frih’s chance at doing 1 million first week will be solely because of Drake’s inclusion. What a flop.

    • q_T August 30, 2016

      I really thought he was about to propose on Sunday… i was at the edge of my seat like O_o lol They are so cute together!

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 30, 2016

      Hunny beyonce can actually sing though, she doesn’t have to only rely on hits…like some people.

    • Candice August 30, 2016

      You know you that b**** when u cuz all of this…

  2. Dev August 30, 2016

    It’s probably for a video

    • There is only one beyonce per generation… And this one’s is not rihanna August 30, 2016

      Joint tour, joint album, joint p******, and what? Changing names to BEY and JAY?

    • There is only one beyonce per generation… And this one’s is not rihanna August 30, 2016

      Seriously rihanna can be recognized as a great artist if you stop comparing her to the legendary bee.

  3. Ty August 30, 2016

    Too good video since it was a smash hit in uk,… Nothing to see here folks

  4. IStan4Rihanna. August 30, 2016

    1. If it’s a joint album I can only imagine the S.P.S… THE MOTHERFUĆĶÌNG S.P.S! It’ll be the most streamed album for the rest of the year and of all-time. Only the King & Queen of Streaming.

    .

    2. “Too Good” Music video?

    .

    3. A joint tour?

    .

    What is it? I AM SHOOK!!!!!!!

    • q_T August 30, 2016

      It’s probably the video for too good, but bishhhhhhh im so lit inside for thisssssssss

  5. HailLegendBeysus August 30, 2016

    They want to be Jay and Bey so bad!
    .
    Im still laughing at SlaygendYoncé scalping her at the VMA’S! Lemonslayed is currently in the top 10 in 40+ countries and top 20 in 60+ countries. Frihanna dispite having 4 PERFORMANCES is only top 10 in 5 countries and top 20 in 13 ?????

    • SLAYonce’ August 30, 2016

      What does nay of that have to do with the post? Seriously… I love Bey just as much as anybody but why propagate a non-existent stan war now! UGH. FFS.

      • HailLegendBeysus August 30, 2016

        Lmao the war was going to ignite whether i commented or not. I find it funny you came for my comment first but left that Slavi alone up top who ignited it. You ain’t Hive so which Slavi member are you? ?☕

    • Sebastian August 30, 2016

      Rihanna countless smash hits this decade, Beyoncé? Rihanna just had a #1 hit. Beyoncé?

      • Nahh August 30, 2016

        Rihanna does payola

  6. fake August 30, 2016

    whois request clearly shows its fake

  7. Skyfall August 30, 2016

    Both of their reps have confirmed that neither Drake or Rihanna have anything to do with this site.

    • IStan4Rihanna. August 30, 2016

      I’m confused as Drake’s manager himself has posted a tweet relating to this?

      .

      It doesn’t make any sense.

  8. SLAYonce’ August 30, 2016

    Marriage? Rihanna’s pregnant? They’re engaged? Loooool. I’m so ready

  9. JOHNVIDAL August 30, 2016

    If that´s the case it will be the first time the public buys in big scales during the first week an album where she is in 🙂 🙂 🙂
    When I read “Iconic” “slayage” attached to Rihanna´s name in these comments I can only LOL

    • StayWoke August 30, 2016

      Get your dumb, filthy, white Spanish ass a out of this post and go elsewhere… It’s always dumb racist bishes like you tryna talk shiiiit

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 30, 2016

      I said that when a Navy Stan tried it. The only way she can have first week sales even close to Bey is by Samsung or teaming up with Drake.

      • Blue Ivy Rod August 30, 2016

        Yet sell around the same in the end? Do y’all ever get tired of coming up with stale drags?

      • JOHNVIDAL August 31, 2016

        Beyonce has been selling way more than Rihanna lately, especially in teh uSA, in the end and not in the end 🙂 Not to mention selling teh same in the end after 7 singles ready for what radio wants doesn´t scream real appreciation byt the public, does it? 🙂

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 30, 2016

      Daaamnn bih, you all up in my faves post before I am. Y’all stan Miss Rihanna so damn hard. Y’all probably run a fansite. I get it tho, my fave’s pu$$y pops and yours doesn’t…because they’re all dead.

      • JOHNVIDAL August 31, 2016

        You mean I visit only one of the 7 Rihanna posts TGJ writes every two days? IO knwo you´re not good at logic but hun, that´s not being a fan. That´s just saying some truths every 7 posts 🙂
        ps: you said Rihanna is bigger than Madonna has ever been… LMAO Just grow up!!!! 🙂

    • LB August 30, 2016

      Funny, I make the same “LOL” whenever Mariah claims she sings with the mic on

      • JOHNVIDAL August 31, 2016

        LOL Oh boy don´t even go there. Mariah slayes Rihanna now in 2016 vocally, like really slayes. And also sings a similar percentage of her shows live, similar to Rihanna. Difference is Mariah has a good reason to lip some parts. Rihanna has none since her songs are “onana goats my name”. Do you understand it? 🙂

  10. Ayyseify August 30, 2016

    Tho it’s prolly for the video, a joint album would slay!! Lol not the hive feeling threatened by a rumor. Kii.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 30, 2016

      Threatened over Jay-a & Beyonce’s understudy releasing a joint album. Bey & Jay album have been rumored for the past 2 years either way the King & queen not bothered, Just flashback to Sunday night if you need a visual reminder why!

      • HailLegendBeysus August 30, 2016

        LMFAOOOOOOO!!!!

      • Sebastian August 30, 2016

        Drake overshadowed Beyoncé on the BB200 chart. So there’s no problem there. Beyoncé can’t have hits anymore. Why be threatened?

      • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 30, 2016

        @Hailabey

        Hey Sis, these girls been trying it, & I am feeling petty!

      • Blue Ivy Rod August 30, 2016

        Sunday or did you mean the Sunday before at the Formation tour because too be honest I couldn’t tell the difference between the set and routines. Just sayin

  11. IStan4Rihanna. August 30, 2016

    The way this post has turned and the rumour aparently isn’t even true…

    .

    LMFAOOOOOOOOOO!

  12. Skyfall August 30, 2016

    According to the clock, something will happen on Thursday, September 8 at 9 p.m. Eastern. However, representatives for both Drake and Rihanna have confirmed to Pitchfork that the site is not associated with either artist. Sorry, everyone.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 30, 2016

      Word on the street is that Rih is leaving Roc Nation. This follows a rumor that was leaked by a Roc Nation insider that claimed that the leak of ANTI was a sabotage as the project was going to be her last album under the label.

  13. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 30, 2016

    I gotta exclaim how proud I am of Miss Rihanna over her VMA performances as I’m still on cloud nine. Sure, Beyonce is a performance beast and stage force to be reckoned with, but my girl came all the way through and did her thang. Each year Rihanna continues to show growth. She gave the world four very different curated performances, each bolstering a different aesthetic like a moving painting, which is a far improvement from her 2008 and 2009 performances where she looked like a deer in headlights. From her europop dream to her Caribbean festival, she advanced herself and gave new choreogrpahy. Furthermore, she created completely different routines instead of bringing her ANTI Tour set which I expected. Simply, she out Kanyed Kanye! I love this girl and she ain’t done yet!

    • IStan4Rihanna. August 30, 2016

      What I admired most about her set is how she showcased various facets of her discography and personality in one show.

      .

      Pop Rihanna; Dancehall/Island Rihanna; Urban-R&B/Hip-Hop Rihanna; Ballad/Downtempo Rihanna.

      .

      This woman has so many hits that she had to forgo some of her biggest, most iconic classics to suit songs that I personally she likes the most – Pon De Replay; S.O.S; Umbrella; Unfaithful; Take a Bow; Distrubia etc.

      .

      Where on earth was “UMBRELLA”?

      .

      Anyhow, I am so proud of her. At 28 years old she is already revieving lifetime achievement awards and the like. My goodness…

      .

      My fave is such a Queen and as a British-Caribbean myself (Jamaican and Cuban) I couldn’t be more pleased.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 30, 2016

        YESS! This girl has the definition of a discography and she’s not even 30! Her predecessors don’t even have a catalog as diverse and expansive as hers. The first two performances are my favorite! Like who else can do 4 very different performances, that each are a mix of her smash hits, at the same award show? Not a damn Gaga, not no damn Britney, and sure as hell not no boring wonderbread Taylor. She’s slowly but surely moving into the lane of greatness.

  14. Skyfall August 30, 2016

    Who cares about first week sales when your albums have longevity.

    Rihanna only has 2 #1 albums yet her albums usually outsell the person who topped it for the week.

    GGGB
    RATED R
    LOUD
    TTT

    All these albums outsold the albums that debuted at #1 the week of release.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 August 30, 2016

      Lies!

    • Nahh August 30, 2016

      In streams not pure sales & thats the real tea

      • Blue Ivy Rod August 30, 2016

        Streams wasn’t as popular back then as it is now. UNA which was 2012 was her last album before this one and that was pure sales. Anti is the only album from Rih that was a streaming force rather than a physical release. Hate all you want but if streaming becomes the main way artists get their music out then you should be scared for Beyonce because her album hasnt even reached half the streams that Rih did.

      • Lolz August 30, 2016

        Beyonce album has only been released on one streaming platform, Tidal so no one is scared of anything lol. If she would release it on everything she would probably be ahead of Rihanna there too. Her album has sold almost double Rihanna in PURE SALES which will always win no matter how big streaming becomes bexause it’s all about profit. So that argument is stupid.

      • Lolz August 30, 2016

        @Blue Ivy

      • Blue Ivy Rod August 30, 2016

        almost double? do you not understand that you (when I say you, then I mean HIVE) are dragging yourself? Do you not realize that it takes 1500 streams to equal ONE pure album sale? Ok and Rih just passed a billion streams within 5 months of release. Now if 1500 streams equals to one album sale then how many albums has Rih sold if she has a billion streams? (not including her “PURE” sales)

  15. Skyfall August 30, 2016

    Anti has sold over 1m WW and is gold in pure sales in the USA. It has crossed 1billion streams and has stayed in the billboard HOT 200 top ten 30 weeks.

    • IStan4Rihanna. August 30, 2016

      It is at 1.6 M S.P.S in the U.S.A and has 2.1 streams WW as of last week. It’s the fourth album to cross 2B streams… EVER.

      .

      “ANTI” is the best performing album in Global S.P.S since “PRISM” and she’ll surpass her in less time.

  16. Mo August 30, 2016

    Keep it.

  17. #JACKIE August 30, 2016

    Joint albums are so lame, but I do prefer their music to the others….

  18. MsYonce August 30, 2016

    Sam know this isn’t true he just wanted to start a Stan war and it worked as always

  19. Suicide Blonde August 30, 2016

    I don’t like collaboration between artists, let alone a joint album, like who wants to listen to an entire album of Drake and Rihanna singing together?

    • HailLegendBeysus August 30, 2016

      LMFAOOOO!!! 200 million albums???? Bitxh where???? SHOW ME THE RECEIPTS!!! Her worldwide certifications have her at 32 million and Def Jam claimed she sold 50m albums back in 2013 and than Roc Nation claimed 60+ million earlier this year! LMFAOOOO the fuxking smoke and mirrors!

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 30, 2016

        Take up your frustration and angst with Complex News, an authority publication in music industry.

  20. FC/JC August 30, 2016

    Im guessing its a tour

  21. q_T August 30, 2016

    OMG !!! I’m drawn to these two like a giant magnet! I live!!!!!! <3

  22. Barb B**** August 30, 2016

    Second rate Jay and Bey. Late.

  23. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 30, 2016

    Great. We get to hear a bunch of corny lines about how much Drake loves rihanna and how he wants to “go to bed with her.” He needs to go back to rap and stop with this mess. All the songs they’ve done together have been boring af. Rih made Drake soft.

  24. well well August 30, 2016

    will see in a 8 days!?! i dunno what this’ about. *shrugs*

  25. Lolz August 30, 2016

    I like their songs together but a whole album will just kill it.

  26. HailLegendBeysus August 30, 2016

    HDD has 69% of sales counted for and Bey already sold 12k in pure sales! With streams it’s 15k. That’s up 2k from last week! SLAY!!! Can’t wait to see her WE sales this week. She’s coming for 3m in PURE SALES!!!!

  27. Junior in Jamaica August 30, 2016

    LOL this site is like to JoannaPrada dude…

  28. MISHKA August 31, 2016

    What they should be readying is marriage and carriage. Both have grown up so much and they’re equally successful, they’re ready.

  29. Nowqd Reddish tran ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixi August 31, 2016

    If this true then good for them
