For starters, according to journalist Samuel Hine, A$AP "[knew] he probably shouldn't talk about Rihanna." But the Testing artist simply couldn't help it... Love on the brain much?

Back in the winter of 2019/2020, the 2 sparked major buzz after appearing together on a red carpet. Shortly after, they were spotted together on New Year's Eve. Though the pair hadn't addressed it, the sparks were clearly there. So, what changed? It's simple: A$AP realized he found "the One." "So much better when you got the One. She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones," he gushed of RiRi. "I think when you know, you know."
