Drake announced during the VMAs on Sunday night that he has loved Rihanna since he was 22-years-old. Now at 29, he says he still loves her. The singers confirmed their relationship Wednesday night with a romantic kiss on stage in Miami. That kiss was more passionate than the hug and a peck on the cheek that took place a few days earlier. Drake presented the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award to Rihanna during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden.

When he attempted to kiss her, she turned her head and ended up with only a peck on the cheek. Just a few days later, Drake was performing during his Summer Sixteen tour when Rihanna surprised him on stage by singing a song of her own. When the song was over, Drake kissed her while she wrapped her arms around him much to the audience's approval.
