On July 11, the Fenty mogul and the rapper got extremely cozy while filming a project together in New York City. While Getty stipulates that the pair were filming a music video, the image hosting website did not specify whose music video they were shooting (Rihanna, please tell us it’s for R9).
Despite New York City weather reaching highs of 81 degrees on July 11, both artists were dressed for Fall. Rihanna paired wide-legged brown pants, a leather corset, and a long brown leather and fleece coat. She topped off the look with a silk head wrap and gold jewelry. A$AP Rocky, on the other hand, dressed in a black bomber jacket, boots, trucker hat, and a pretty massive diamond ring on his finger.
But no accessory shined as bright as their smiles! Cheesy, I know, but look at these two cuddling up together.
And check the hand-holding!
Though Rihanna has not spoken publically about her relationship with the rapper, the couple was spotted kissing in Barbados in December 2020, where they reportedly spent the holidays with her family. “Spending Christmas together was an obvious step for Rihanna and A$AP,” a source tells E.T. “They’ve known each other for so long as friends and in a work setting, which makes it so easy for them to get along, travel together, and be involved in each other’s lives to the full extent. They always have such a good time together and definitely seem in love.”
In May 2021, A$AP Rocky confirmed the relationship in a profile for GQ, describing Rihanna as “the love of my life” and “my lady.”
He also referred to the “Diamonds” singer as “the One” while discussing why he favors monogamy to being single. “So much better when you got the One,” he says. “[Rihanna] amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”
