Drake's latest work is Rihanna-approved.

The Barbadian beauty, who was once romantically linked to the rapper and was also featured on the song "Take Care" from his last album with the same name, shared with her Instagram and Twitter followers today that she is a big fan of Drizzy's new album, Nothing Was the Same, by giving the celeb props for his project.

"Congratulations @champagnepapi Excellent work!! #NWTS," RiRi wrote with a photo of the album cover.

But Rihanna hinted that she was a fan of what Drake was coming up with before the album even dropped.

In early August, the pop star took to Twitter to gush over the rapper's latest single, "Hold On, We're Going Home," and even tweeted her favorite lyrics to the then-newly released track.

"I got my eyes on you," she wrote. "Cuz you're a good girl and you know it!"

When one fan wrote more lyrics to the song, she immediately responded with, "My new fave record, period."

Drake released his third studio album last week, and explained to E! News that "it's emotional, but I think I also found a balance in the production—as far as not to make it so down."

He continued to tell us, "I feel like 'Take Care' had real ballads, real down moments, and I feel like on this album, I try to push everything together to make it strong. It's great. It's one of my favorite pieces. It's concise. I'm really proud of the writing on there. And 40 [Noah Shebib] outworked me on the production, he's amazing. It's good, I'm excited."

Just remember: Be careful when Drake-ing and driving, folks. (You too, Rihanna.)
