Speculation about potential item Drake and Rihanna has reached an all-time high since the VMAs.

But since his heartfelt speech while presenting Rihanna with the Video Vanguard Award, it's been Drake doing all the talking -- until now.

Rihanna took to Instagram last night to express her gratitude for what she described as the "best night ever," and finally showed Drake a little love in return.

Along with a video of her acceptance speech, the 28-year-old "Work" singer shared a lengthy message about the night.

"#VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget!! I have the most incredible people in my life! My family, friends, loved ones, my fans, my team!!! All gifted beautiful spirits!" she wrote.

"And I'm so grateful that God has precisely and flawlessly arranged our paths to meet at each other! It's because of you that I was able to reach this moment in my career! And it's also because of you that I was able to pull off a night like this one, with 4 medley performances, 4 set productions, 4 outfits, 4 hair and makeup looks, and all in 4 days of rehearsal! It was a challenge but I wanted nothing more than to give my fans a true representation of all the colors that I'm made of as an artist!" she added.

She then gave shout-outs to Naomi Campbell, Mary J. Blige and Tracee Ellis Ross.

"My journey has been filled with growth and people who continue to inspire me! Forever grateful to everyone involved creatively, from choreography all the way to wardrobe and production! @MTV team you were a dream to work with! Thank you to the beautiful @iamnaomicampbell @therealmaryjblige @traceeellisross for your kind words!"

And she wrapped up with the moment we've all been waiting for.

"@champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that!" she wrote before finally concluding the post.

"All in all....Best night ever!!! I'm a lucky girl!!! To God be the Glory! #RiRiVanguard"

Drake has also shared his affection via Instagram recently. A selfie of the two from after the awards showed the rumored couple getting cozy.

"This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us! You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you! @badgalriri" Drake wrote in the caption.
