Rihanna will receive the Video Vanguard Award at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, the show's highest career honor given to artists who have made a great impact on culture. Drake gets that this is a very big deal, so he went ahead and bought an entire billboard to congratulate her. Black-ish star Yara Shahidi shared a glimpse of it on Twitter:

And Rihanna posted it too on her Instagram, with a nice little caption:
