A$AP Rocky has confirmed that he and Rihanna are dating.

Rocky described Rihanna as “the love of my life” in an in depth interview with GQ published yesterday.

Rumours have been circulating about the rap-pop power couple as early as 2013, when Rocky opened for Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour.

In the interview Rocky describes a different kind of tour he embarked on last summer with his “lady”. The couple rented a tour bus and driving from LA to NYC, winding through Texas, Memphis and a dozen other cities; not to perform but to recreate the Great All American Road Trip.

“Being able to drive and do a tour without feeling like it was an occupation or an obligated job agreement, I feel like that experience is like none other,” Rocky recalled, “I never experienced nothing like it.”

All that time spent together has “absolutely” influenced Rocky’s upcoming music, as the rap-pop power couple could “bounce those creative juices and ideas off of” each other. Rocky hints that his next album will be filled with “ghetto love tales” that are “way more mature” than previous work.

He described how his life now, in a relationship, is “so much better”.

“I think when you know, you know. She's the One… She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones,” he said.

Sightings of the couple are few and far between, as they try to avoid being spotted together by paparazzi.

However, rumours of their dating had been growing stronger after they posed together on the red carpet at The Fashion Awards in London in December 2019, and spent New Years Eve together in New York City.

The pair were also pictured together in Barbados at Christmas time last year, where Rihanna was raised and where Rocky’s father emigrated from to the US.

Rocky is already thinking of the future, and potentially kids down the road. “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely… I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
