American rapper A$AP Rocky just released a new single called 'D.M.B. (Dat's My B***h)' and the music video has fans excited to witness the proposal we've all been waiting for. Rocky and Rihanna may not have tied the knot in real life but to watch it happen in a professionally choreographed video with the auditory backdrop of her boyfriend dedicating a song entirely to her has helped keep fans satiated.

Rocky posted snapshots from his music video on his Instagram account featuring him and the 'Umbrella' singer. The photos included a poster that described the song as a "Ghetto Love Tale."

"PROUD TO ANNOUNCE MY DIRECTORIAL DEBUT 'D.M.B.' VIDEO OUT NOW!!! THANK$ TO ALL INVOLVED WHO HELPED," he wrote. Adding a special thank you for Rihanna he said, "AND $PECIAL THANK$ TO MY LADY FOR THE MOTIVATION AND ROLE."

The 'Praise the Lord' singer released his song 'D.M.B.' on May 5. It featured a pre-baby bump Rihanna in a relationship with Rocky. The rapper has dedicated the song to his girlfriend, the lyrics talking about how she's got his back and is fiercely loyal and caring. Visually, it was a collage of moments between the couple as it progressed from the early relationship era to proposal and marriage.

The song features an iconic moment with a very unique proposal — the rapper flashes his teeth and gold letters spelling "Marry me?" shine through on his grill. The 'Diamonds' singer grins in response to show gold on her teeth responding with "I do."

It may only be a music video but it has fans speculating, trying to connect the dots and align timelines. They can't help but wonder about the possibility that the couple may have been secretly married all this time.

Rihanna and her boyfriend Rocky went public with their relationship in May 2021 after from years of friendship. The 34-year-old Barbadian singer and business mogul broke the internet with her pregnancy announcement at the end of January. She revealed she's pregnant with her first child via a stroll through New York City. The singer was prepared for the cameras though — she showed off her baby bump in a long pink coat that was open at the waist and blue jeans. She also wore a long chain of pearls and colourful jewels.

Since then, Rihanna has thoroughly wowed fans by ditching the traditional maternity outfits and donning glamorous designs that celebrate her body and blatantly show off the bump. All has not been smooth sailing though, last month rumours started circulating the internet that the rapper may have cheated on his baby mama with Fenty shoe designer Amina Muaddi, enraging netizens. Muaddi took to her Instagram to slam the gossip, denying all of it.
