Watch: Rihanna & A$AP Rocky: Details on New York City Date Night

It looks like A$AP Rocky has Rihanna's heart (and they'll never be worlds apart).

The couple enjoyed a night out at aptly named Barcade (part bar, part arcade, all fun) in New York on June 23. During their outing, the two played video games and had a little friendly competition.

"They looked competitive and were laughing and having fun," an eyewitness said. "She loved watching him and was always standing very close."

Afterwards, they moved to the bar and packed on the PDA. An onlooker noted that RiRi wrapped her arms around A$AP Rocky as he rested his head on her shoulder. They were also seen gazing into each other's eyes, cuddling and kissing.

"She was leaning into him and nuzzling his neck," an onlooker said. "They both lit up and had big smiles on their faces. They seemed happy and in love. They never left each other's side all night and were always holding each other and kissing. She pulled him in close and didn't want to let him go. He just kept looking at her and smiling. They had a great time and showed each other plenty of affection on a fun night out."

Rihanna's Best Looks

In addition, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky bought a round of drinks for their fellow patrons.

"They came in and were really friendly to everyone," actor and model Kyle Price exclusively told E! News. "My friend and I were playing Ninja Turtles Time Warp and were really into it. A big crowd of people started to join in and play with us. It got so spirited that eventually Rih and A$AP came over and started cheering us on, too. A$AP Rocky bought us all a round of shots to keep us encouraged, and Rih was cheering us on, too! Eventually we won the game and celebrated."


Of course, the fashion icon totally nailed her date night look. Rihanna rocked a pink dress, accessorizing with a furry bucket hat and a string of Dior beads. At one point, the singer also borrowed the rapper's black leather jacket.


Their coupling is the result of finding love in a pretty expected place. Longtime stage companions that have appeared in each other's music videos, fans suspected they had advanced their friendship when they started hanging out in early 2020 after the Fenty Beauty founder's three-year relationship with Hassan Jameel ended. By the end of the year, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were spending the holidays together in Barbados.


And possibly forever? A$AP Rocky recently called the nine-time Grammy winner—his partner on a recent cross-country road trip—"the love of my life," in a May GQ profile. 

"I think when you know, you know," he explained in the cover story. "She's the One."
