Drizzy and Rih Rih showed some love.

Rihanna and Drake have honoured a young fan who sadly died of cancer.

The ‘Work’ collaborators paid tribute to Megan Flores, a cancer patient they met earlier this year after US charity Make-A-Wish made her dreams of meeting Drake come true.

Drizzy, who was clearly overwhelmed by their meeting, dedicated his latest album ‘Views’ to Megan after it became clear she was no longer responding to treatment.

After receiving news that she had died over the weekend, Drake shared an Instagram picture of Flores alongside a thoughtful message. 

“Rest in peace my angel. I know heaven is celebrating today. Thank you for the moments and emotions we share I am blessed to have known you in this lifetime.”


Rihanna also dedicated her own Instagram post to Megan, revealing they had been introduced through Drake.

"I had the pleasure of meeting an angel on earth! After my show in Miami, @champagnepapi introduced me to Megan! She's inspired me so much with her strength and her perspective on life! So fearless and kind!"

“It's heavy news that I can't slide in your DMs anymore like I used to!!," she added. "There was always a smile waiting for me there! You brightened any day! Rest up baby girl! We will miss you!!"

Meanwhile, Rihanna recently brought out Drake in Manchester during her ANTI World tour dates in the UK.
