Rihanna and Drake are used to collaborating on music together, but they'll be in competition at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
The two music stars lead the pack of nominees this year, with both of them having five shots each at winning a statue.
They'll compete against one another for the Video of the Year honor, as Drake's clip for "Take Care" featuring Rihanna is going up against the songbird's music video for her single "We Found Love."
The other three competitors in that category are Katy Perry with "Wide Awake"; Gotye with "Somebody that I Used to Know"; and M.I.A. with "Bad Girls."
Rihanna's also up to win Best Female Video and Best Pop Video for "We Found Love," and her video for the song "Where Have You Been" scored nominations in the Best Visual Effects and Best Choreography categories.
Drake's "Take Care" will also compete in the Best Male Video, Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography categories, while his work with Lil Wayne, "HYFR," is nominated in the Best Hip-Hop Video category.
Katy Perry, meanwhile, received four nods this year, with Beyonce, Coldplay, Frank Ocean, M.I.A., and the Jay-Z/Kanye West collaboration, Watch the Throne, each landing three.
The Best New Artist race looks to be a toss-up: Fun.'s "We Are Young" will battle it out with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe"; Frank Ocean's "Swim Good”; One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful"; and The Wanted's "Glad You Came."
So far, Alicia Keys and pop band One Direction are among the announced acts slated to perform on a night that will see many other stars cross the stage, including nominees Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj.
The MTV Video Music Awards will air live on September 6 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. To see the full list of nominees, visit MTV.com.

She came from Barbados to the United States and got the islands f**cked outta her. She is SO mainstream now that she isn't herself nor original.
these two may make money, but they suck.
She is so headed down the Whitney Houston Highway it's scary!
clarify your comment.
In Looking at the picture of Drake, he reminds me of my dog...gives me the same look when he needs to go outside and do his "business".
They got the photo wrong. That's Bababooey on the left.
Got get it love birds!
Uh, she's back together with Chris Brown. Apparently she likes to get beat up.
She's so freaking stupid and I refuse to listen to either her or Brown's music.

I feel like theses two are good in the music industry and anything is possible.
I take back my stupidity.
Good for them! And dont really care! Give me ledisi jill and alicia any day!
Anyone that listens to music played on the radio are tools. The radio plays what they want you to listen to, and all of you fall for it. When an "artist" goes up to receive his/her award, be sure to listen to what they say. If they say, " I would like to thank my FANS", what they really mean is, " I would like to thank my TOOLS"..
Incorrect. Billboard and soundscan control the rotation on the radio. The top 40 of each genre are played per the genre of the station. With other filler songs as well. Get a clue.
Drake and rihanna are great singers (drake great rapper as well) no need to hate on their talent because obviously you dont have talent and you do not know what talent is. crawl in the corner and count how many flaws you have. if you dont like them why comment.
YAWWWWNNNNNNNN. Boring music. Faux "edgy" awards ceremony. Has been network.
Go listen to some oldies because you are an idiot. They count more $$$ than you count wrinkles. Dumba$$
@Really Now?You must be sixty and senile.
She sounds like a robot to me. She scares me!
Talk about a crap sandwich....
What these two know about music might fill a thimble. What they know about making horrendous noise, slightly more. Notice how far apart Drake's eyes are? Truly a throwback to the Neanderthal era.
Why did you have to dissect him on his looks?He can't help that,i'll bet you're unattractive as h*ll,and I know you're not talented.Congratulations Drake and Riahnna,you both are hot and talented.
Its quite clear you know nothing about music.
