If unfollowing someone on social media is the modern day equivalent of breaking up (just ask Justin Bieber), what does wearing someone’s socks in your Instagram pic mean?

Drake posted an Instagram shot of himself relaxing pensively Monday night, while sporting an iconic pair of socks featuring the image of long time flame Rihanna. Only days before, Rihanna posted pics of her new sock collection and it appears Drake got hooked up with the “Work” socks featuring Ri’s look from the pair’s iconic vid.

The 30-year-old Toronto native has pined for Rihanna for years, though it appears he may have missed his shot as RiRi is currently seeing Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel. But if we know anything about Drake, it’s that this unrequited love will only lead to more bangers.
Drake posted this sock shoot almost exactly a year after romance rumours between him and Rihanna began heating up. At last year’s MTV VMAs Drake took the stage and confessed his love for the Wild Thoughts singer while presenting her with an award. The pair were spotted out for dinner following the show with Drake posting a throwback photo of the pair shortly after.
With the VMAs imminent, Drake seems to be reminiscing.
While Drake seems to be friend-zoned for now, we must still hold out hope the universe will pull this dynamic duo together. Drizzy and RiRi: the true “will they/won’t they” love story we all deserve.
