The 'You Da One' star was allegedly keen to talk plans for a future collaboration.
Rihanna reportedly invited UK rapper Tinie Tempah to join her and friends on their private yacht cruise around the Mediterranean sea over the weekend.
The 'We Found Love' singer is said to be a big fan of 'Pass Out' rapper Tinie and allegedly discussed a potential team-up over dinner before partying with him and her entourage aboard their super yacht Latitude.
Rihanna has been cruising around the Mediterranean for the past two weeks travelling to the likes of Sardinia, Saint-Tropez and Cannes before arriving in Portofino, Italy at the start of the weekend.
"Rihanna loves TInie's music and is fond of him as a person too," a source told The Sun this week. "She's very keen to work with him at some point, which was discussed at length over dinner.
"Obviously eating took up a small part of the night as he joined her crew on yet another wild night," they added. "It won't be one the he will forget in a hurry."
Tinie is said to have joined the 'Where Have You Been' singer over the weekend after performing live at Global Gathering festival in the UK on Friday (27th July).

The 'Wonderman' rapper is currently preparing to release his second studio album, which is expected to launch before the end of the year, as well as recently featuring on Ellie Goulding's new single 'Hanging On'.
Rihanna was also reported to have met up with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown during her trip last week, despite representatives for the R&B star denying the claims, and is due to continue working on her upcoming seventh studio album when she returns from holiday in August.
