Rihanna put her twerk skills on display Monday in a video shot by her best friend Melissa Forde. The short video lasts only fifteen seconds but the singer certainly gives fellow twerk lover Miley Cyrus a run for her money.
Twerking is a dance move that has recently become popular in music videos and involves a person gyrating their hips. Twenty-year-old Cyrus joined the dance craze in the past few months, and a video of her twerking while wearing a unicorn suit went viral back in March. She then created her own twerk team and showed off the dance yet again in her latest hit video, “We Can’t Stop.”
In the video posted by 25-year-old Rihanna’s best friend on Instagram, the singer may be trying to make ex-boyfriend Chris Brown jealous, as she is dancing to A$AP Rocky’s “Fu—in Problems,” which also features Drake and Kendrick Lamar.
Drake and Rihanna had a brief relationship, presumably while she and Brown were on one of their numerous breaks, which led to animosity between the two male artists. Drake then spoke about Rihanna in an interview with radio host Elliot Wilson on his “Keep It Thoro” show back in April. "At one point in life, the woman that he loves fell into my lap," Drake said. "I did what a real [expletive] would do and treated her with respect. She's not up there talking down on me."
Since then, Brown has gotten back with former flame Karrueche Tran. Rihanna is reportedly single and focusing on her “Diamonds” world tour.
