The 28-year-old star is reportedly keen to get the 'Hotline Bling' rapper onboard following their successful collaboration at the BRIT Awards last month, where the pair performed their hit 'Work' and the Bajan beauty enjoyed twerking up against her former flame.
A source said: “She is determined to recreate some of the buzz that was around for the BRITs. Rihanna and Drake know that 'Work' is one of the highlights of the show and their on-stage chemistry is electric.”
Rihanna is believed to have a private plane on hand for the Canadian singer so he can easily jet off to her various tour locations around the globe.
The 'What's My Name' hitmaker is working with top vocal coach RAab Stevenson, who has worked with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Pharrell Williams, to ensure her voice is in great shape for her upcoming run of gigs.
Rihanna is taking extra precautions after she had to cancel her Grammys performance and delay her world tour due to bronchitis. An insider added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: “It shows a level of commitment that Rihanna wants to get her set-up straight on the tour opener as RAab can work with her through any problems.
“She doesn't want to have to cancel any more dates and she's well aware of the scrutiny her comeback has faced. She's working hard in rehearsals to pull off something special and talked about.”
Drake is said to be “besotted” with the star and they were even rumoured to have snared a sneaky smooch prior to the London-based BRITs.
