Drake is still said to be besotted with his ex and wants to work with her
Rihanna wants to get the buzz back
Nice Work if you can get it.. rapper Drake has been asked to perform with Rihanna this summer at several gigs during the UK leg of her world tour.
The pair sexed up the Brits last month with their downright dirty duet.
And a source says : “She is determined to recreate some of the buzz that was around for the Brits.”
Rihanna will have the use of a private jet to help fly Drake around the world to join her on stage.
3am revealed that RiRi and her ex Drake, 29, were spotted snogging at the Libertine Club in London ahead of the Brits and he is now said to be “besotted” with her.

Rihanna, 28, has taken on top vocal coach, RAab Stevenson, who will be with her on the road during the tour to ensure her voice is in tip-top condition. She wants to avoid a repeat of the Grammys, when she had to pull out due to a bout of bronchitis.
Rihanna’s Anti world tour was initially scheduled to begin last month, but had to be postponed and will now start on Saturday in Florida.
While most artists get their vocal coaching in ahead of the tour, RiRi’s camp aren’t taking any chances and are flying out RAab, who has also worked with Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Madonna, to be on the spot.
RAab is known to be one of the best in the business. His company, Kimad Productions, is based in America’s music hub Atlanta and he co-owns the popular app Voice Tutor, which Rihanna can also use on the road.
Our insider adds: “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.”
That’s what we’d call putting in a shift, Ri.
