To quote Drake's "Fireworks" lyrics: Who could have predicted Lucky Strike would have her stuck with him?

Yes, after more than seven years of back and forth, it appears Rihanna and Champagne Papi may have finally made things official.

The couple were first rumored to be dating after they were spotted making out at a New York City Lucky Strike bowling alley and lounge in 2009. Throughout the next several years, we'd watch the on-again, off-again couple take the stage together multiple times, release numerous collaborations, hit up all the hottest club spots from Los Angeles to London, rekindle with exes (hi and bye, Chris Brown) and showcase their affection across the world...but we never saw them take any serious steps forward.

Until now.

At the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, Drake finally confessed to the world that he's been in love with the Barbadian singer since he was 22 years old—yes, meaning since he first laid eyes on her at that Lucky Strike in 2009.

Following her acceptance speech, the couple briefly kissed, sealing the deal on their relationship for the world to see. That night, Rih was spotted going to his hotel, and the next day, she headed to dinner wearing his shirt from the VMAs.

Now that they've finally made all of our relationship dreams come true, let's take a look back at their full history of twists and turns.

Check out the couple's romance rewind below!
