Drake won over Rihanna‘s attention with his music and stage performance but he may have won over her heart with his speech at the MTV VMAs last week.

Everyone that that the 6 God was going to propose to the Bajan pop star. But instead he gave a heart warming speech telling the audience that he has loved her since he was 22 years old. He didn’t stop there and went on to praise her for being one of the biggest pop stars in world over the last decade. Rihanna was presented with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the 2016 MTV VMAs for her decade old career.

Now she has thanked him on social media stopping short of telling him that she loves him. “Your speech was so touching and I love you for that,” Rihanna wrote on IG in the caption of a video of her acceptance speech.

“#VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget!! I have the most incredible people in my life! My family, friends, loved ones, my fans, my team,” she said. “All gifted beautiful spirits! And I’m so grateful that God has precisely and flawlessly arranged our paths to meet at each other! It’s because of you that I was able to reach this moment in my career! And it’s also because of you that I was able to pull off a night like this one, with 4 medley performances, 4 set productions, 4 outfits, 4 hair and makeup looks, and all in 4 days of rehearsal! It was a challenge but I wanted nothing more than to give my fans a true representation of all the colors that I’m made of as an artist.”
