It's public knowledge at this point that Drake has held an eternal flame for Rihanna. Given this fact, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the internet rumor mill is — once again — fixated on one of his arm tattoos, which fans think may be a tribute to his one and only.
Earlier this week, Drake took a break from his working vacation in Turks and Caicos to announce that he's in "album mode" via Instagram. However, eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice his bicep tattoo — a portrait of a woman who bears a striking resemblance to Rihanna — in the photo.
And, naturally, the pic has set off a fierce Twitter debate over whether or not that is Rih.

However, as Elle points out, this isn't a new rumor, as the same speculation surfaced in 2016 after he posted a work-out photo that featured the tattoo front-and-center. Not only that, but the publication also notes that a Drake fan account previously explained that it's actually a portrait of '90s star Robin Givens.
That said, Drake's never confirmed the rumor either way, so who knows? Anything's possible with that one, to be honest.
