Rihanna’s “ANTI World Tour” took over the City of Angels this week, pulling into The Forum in Inglewood, California for two sold-out nights. During the second show on Wednesday night (May 4), RiRi was joined by Drake for the third time during her North American leg to perform their chart-topping hit “Work.” Like the Toronto stop earlier this month, Drizzy then broke into a quick solo set of his VIEWS single “One Dance,” and “Jumpman.”

Rihanna’s tour continues in California this weekend with stops in San Jose, Oakland, and San Diego, while Drake will host and perform on Saturday Night Live on May 14.
