    When you're in the spotlight, it's natural to start dating someone else who's similarly in the spotlight - this has birthed many a Hollywood couple, some musician-actor couples like Ezra Koenig and Rashida Jones, and even a musician-eccentric inventor couple like Grimes and Elon Musk. 

    But we've just learned that one of the brightest young rappers on the scene Cordae is dating world #1 tennis star Naomi Osaka and friends, we can't love this pairing enough. 

    The best part? 22-year-old Cordae had no idea who Naomi was when he met her at a Clippers basketball game, even though she had beaten tennis champion Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open in a historic moment for the 21-year-old. 

    Cordae told Ebro Darden, "I didn't even know who she was. When you think about tennis, I know Serena Williams. That's all I can speak on tennis." 

    He explained growing up he didn't watch tennis at all, but obviously now that's changed. Just this weekend after playing his set at Made In America Festival, he flew over to the US Open to support his girl, sitting alongside Colin Kaepernick and Kobe Bryant no less.

    As you can imagine, the internet is loving this talented pair flourishing together and Cordae's endless support for his powerful girlfriend. When asked by TMZ what he does to help Naomi prepare for a match, he simply said, "I let her do her thing. Just show love, motivate. But she know what she doing.”

    We'll be stanning this couple 'til we die, tbh. Please join us.
