After a day promoting the release of “Roar,”Katy Perry was ready to raise a glass. And she knew just who to do so with — her longtime BFF, Rihanna.

The pair were reunited — having not been spotted together since the 2012 MTV Music Awards — to celebrate Perry’s first single off her upcoming fourth studio album, PRISM, due out Oct. 22, at New York City hotspot The Lion Monday night.

Rihanna shared a snap of their night on the town, showing her cozied up to Perry. “She. X She,” she captioned the Instagram. “#KatyAnna #RIHunited.”

Perry is now slated to perform “Roar” for the first time live at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, joining previously announced performers Kanye West and Lady Gaga, who will perform a new single from her upcoming ARTPOP album, which arrives on Nov. 11. The ceremony will air live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Aug. 25.
