On his Thank Me Later album, Drake's song "Fireworks" has a verse about Rihanna, who asked him to write a song for her new album (which never got released). The two soon began seeing each other regularly and even had a make-out session at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in New York last year, though they never publicly confirmed their brief relationship. In the track, he says:

 “I could tell it wasn’t love, I just thought you’d fuck with me/ Who could’ve predicted Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me, damn/ I kept my wits about me luckily, what happened between us that night, it always seems to trouble me/ Now all of a sudden these gossip rags wanna cover me, and you makin’ it seem like it happened that way because of me/ But I was curious, and I’ll never forget it baby, what an experience/ You could’ve been the one, but it wasn’t that serious.”

He explains what happened between them. “I was a pawn,” he candidly tells The New York Times. “You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I’ve done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, ‘Wow, this feels terrible.’”

In the Times article, it reveals that the song "The Resistance" is about an accidental pregnancy with a woman he was briefly involved with, who chose to end the pregnancy.
