If you thought the "Work" music video was hot, wait until you see this live performance!

On Wednesday night, Rihanna returned to the stage for her first performance at the Brit Awards since 2012.

While fans were excited just to get a live rendition of her newest single, they were full-on thrilled when special guest Drake came onstage to truly turn up the heat.

Perhaps they were recreating their PDA-filled music video. Possibly they were just really feeling the moment. Or maybe they wanted to have the best performance of the night. Whatever the reason, these two got people talking with their smooth moves, matching all-white outfits and straight-up grinding on live TV.

The cherry on top to this performance may have been when the singers went in for a hug when the song ended. And before we could see if an innocent kiss was included, the cameras just had to pan out. Gosh darn it!

RiRi's latest show comes less than two weeks after she had to cancel her 2016 Grammys performance at the last minute.

While sources told E! News that she arrived for rehearsals, her health made it almost impossible for her to sing in front of millions of people.

"Based on Rihanna's examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna's doctor put her on vocal rest for 48-hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords," her rep said in a statement to E! News.  "The antibiotics she has been on for 3-days did not kill the infection adequately therefore she cannot perform safely."

Rihanna later tweeted, "#NAVY so sorry I couldn't be there ..... Thanks Grammys and CBS for your support tonight."

Ultimately, this is only the beginning for what could be a huge year for Rihanna. After releasing a new album, the 28-year-old is preparing for a massive Anti world tour that will kick off March 12 in Jacksonville, Fla.

Travis Scott will be on tour with her as the opening act for the North America leg while The Weeknd and Big Sean will join her in Europe. To find out if she's coming to your town, visit her website here.
