Rihanna is a QUEEN!

In case you forgot how many amazing videos the songstress has given us over the years, the 2016 MTV VMAs is ready to remedy that… by giving her the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award!

To celebrate the honor, RiRi took the stage to perform a haunting version of Stay and an IMPECCABLE take on Diamonds. We were just blown away!

Following up those two hits, RiRi belted out Love On The Brain, a rendition which earned her a standing ovation. It’s clear the singer is so beloved by her fans!

To make matters even better, the beauty’s rumored boyfriend Drake gifted her with the prestigious award following the performance. So heartwarming.

Decked out in a sharp suit, Drizzy recalled first meeting the entertainer in 2005 — an encounter which he parlayed into a long lasting friendship and infatuation. The rapper even admitted to loving the celeb since he was twenty-two years old!

The 29-year-old also went on to gush over Rihanna’s ability to stay true to herself despite everything. What a fitting description!

While we would have loved for Drake to propose (seriously we thought it was going that way, LOLz!), we were happy with this consolation prize. The Canadian truly has a way with words!
