Jay-Z grooms Rihanna's replacement

The cardinal rule of the music biz: do not backstab Jay-Z. Rihanna teaming up with Chris Brown recently may have been music to some ears, but Jay-Z was allegedly against the controversial move, and seeing as the Birthday Cake singer is signed to his management company Roc Nation, he wasn’t too happy.

Days after the news broke, Jay-Z announced new artist Rita Ora, debuting the British singer at a party in New York. He’s rumoured to be grooming Rita to replace RiRi – she even has matching blonde hair. We can’t wait to see how the feisty Barbadian RiRi reacts!

After being snubbed by Chris Brown, she has allegedly turned to another old flame – rapper Drake. Last month the pair worked together on a single Take Care and after looking at a promo of the new video, we can feel the chemistry!

This isn’t the first time RiRi and Drake have been linked. In 2009, shortly after she split from Chris, they were snapped canoodling outside a bowling alley, but never officially got together. RiRi has admitted she’s attracted to Drake and video director Yoann Lemoine revealed the pair were “super-close”. Has RiRi finally found love? Is Chris Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche finally safe?
