It's a universally known truth that Drake and Rihanna are meant to be together (just ask their matching shark tattoos (opens in new tab)), but after going super public (opens in new tab) last year, they split up (opens in new tab) and Drake kinda-sorta-maybe rebounded (opens in new tab) with Jennifer Lopez.

But wait! It appears as though Drake has once again started spilling his feelings for Rihanna in public, and took time out of his Dublin concert to wish her happy birthday.

"It's somebody's birthday today—somebody I have a lot of love for and a lot of respect for," he said. "So, instead of singing 'Happy Birthday,' though, we just going to do this in Dublin tonight. Instead of singing 'Happy Birthday,' we're going to set it off just like this...." (Cut to Drake singing "Work.")

LOL at Drake, but also 😍.
