After a March show in Miami, the Make-a-Wish Foundation facilitated a meeting between Drake, Rihanna, and a young fan of theirs who was battling cancer. Drake ended up dedicating his album Views, which came out in late April, to the teen, writing in the liner notes that “this body of work is dedicated to Megan Flores. I pray for your well-being every day.”

Flores died Saturday after succumbing to her progressive metastasized sarcoma, and both Drake and Rihanna have now paid tribute to her via social media.

“Rest in peace my angel,” Drake wrote in the caption of an Instagram post with a picture of Flores. “I know heaven is celebrating today. Thank you for the moments and emotions we share I am blessed to have known you in this lifetime.”

Meanwhile, Rihanna reposted the picture she had taken with Flores and Drake when they met, adding a lengthy caption of her own. “I had the pleasure of meeting an angel on earth!” Rihanna wrote. “She’s inspired me so much with her strength and her perspective on life! So fearless and kind! It’s heavy news that I can’t slide in your DMs anymore like I used to!! There was always a smile waiting for me there! You brightened any day! Rest up baby girl! We will miss you!!”
