Drake x Rihanna 8.13.14

During his OVO Fest set earlier this month, Drake caused headlines when his “Days In The East” performance included quick flashes of Rihanna on the screen behind him, emblazoned with fire and in between flashes of the letter ‘6.’ Originally thought by media to be a roundabout way of calling his former flame “evil” or the devil, Drake took to Twitter to clarify that the 6 was simply in homage to his forthcoming album, Views From The 6, and that he thinks Rihanna is “a good girl.” (The 6 references 416 – Toronto’s area code.) However, he never explained why Rihanna’s picture was there, but credible outlets reported that it was because he was “bitter” that she doesn’t want him back, and that afterward, “his friends called him out for the picture and Drake has since regretted his decision.” Seems like that’s a bit inaccurate!

Last night, I attended the Hartford, CT stop of the ‘Drake vs. Lil Wayne’ tour, and when the beat to “Days In The East” started playing, I definitely kept my eyes peeled to see what would happen. Sure enough, multiple images of Rih popped on the screen, and I was able to catch a couple of them. Listening to the lyrics once more, I’ve decided that this is definitely his way of making a plea for her to come back.

Waitin’ on you to give in and hit me up
