“Work,” featuring Drake, is nominated for Record of the Year at the 2017 Grammys. The song faces stiff competition, as Adele‘s “Hello,” Beyoncé‘s “Formation,” Lukas Graham‘s “7 Years,” and Twenty One Pilots‘ “Stressed Out” are also in the running. Rihanna and Drake’s duet is also up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with The Chainsmokers and Halsey‘s “Closer,” Lukas Graham’s “7 Years,” Sia and Sean Paul‘s “Cheap Thrills” and Twenty One Pilots’ “Stressed Out.”

Rihanna and Drake each earned eight nominations; only Beyoncé received more recognition. However, the the rapper had to skip Sunday’s ceremony at the Staples Center in L.A., as he had already scheduled a concert at the Manchester Arena in England. During his Boy Meets World Tour set, however, Drake took a moment to send Rihanna, 28, some love from across the pond.

“You know, I hope they give Rihanna some awards tonight for that ‘Work’ song, because that was a big ass song and she deserves it,” Drake, 30, told his fans. “I hope they don’t do us dirty.”
