Rihanna and Drake once again proved themselves the couple that America needs, as they teamed up for a sizzling performance during Rihanna’s latest Anti World Tour stop in Manchester, U.K.

Wednesday night’s crowd got quite the show when frequent collaborator Drake made a surprise appearance to perform his verse on their No. 1 hit “Work.”

The singers shared a friendly hug before their performance took on a more flirtatious vibe, with plenty of on-stage chemistry, not to mention twerking. And after the song, Drake said of Rihanna, “Manchester, you got to make some noise for the most beautiful, talented woman I’ve ever seen in my life. … I’m getting my heart broken.”

Watch the full performance above, and hear Drake’s declaration in the video below.
