Pro tennis athlete Naomi Osaka was just named one of Time's 100 most influential people after a huge 2018, so needless to say she's likely on top of the world right now. YBN Cordae, meanwhile, had a huge breakout year in 2018, becoming one of rap's most promising young talents. TMZ reports that the two talented 21-year-olds might be seeing each other, fueling speculation that kicked off when Cordae appeared on Osaka's Instagram.

While the two haven't announced anything just yet, sources close to the two indicate that they've been spending a lot of time together. They're not an item just yet, but one source stated, "Just give it a week." Earlier this week she posted a video of her and Cordae, which she captioned, "Can't take this guy anywhereeeee lol." She also called him "clumsy" in the video. In the comments, Cordae posted numerous kissing emojis.

Osaka is currently ranked the No. 1 player in the world by the Women's Tennis Association. Cordae just recently released two videos for his new song "Have Mercy" and also announced the name of his debut album, The Lost Boy. The record isn't due until later this year, but it will likely arrive before the start of his first headling tour kicking off this May. Scroll down to see dates.
