Drake raked in multiple awards last night (May 21) at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Before the night even started, the 6 God had already claimed 10 awards. The cap was when he won Top Artist which gave him his 13th award for the night. That helped him beat out music sensation Adele for most wins by any artist in a single night. This guy just continues to break records.
The Toronto-born MC beat out other acts such as Justin Bieber, Beyonce, The Chainsmokers, Rihanna Ariana Grande and his fellow Toronto native The Weeknd. To celebrate his victory, Drake brought his entire family and his squad up to the stage which included Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, the man he continuously praised throughout the night by saying “without you taking a chance on me, I wouldn’t be here.”
In addition to Drake’s Top Artist award, he also won Top Rap Artist Top Rap Album, Top Rap Tour, Top R&B Song, Top R&B Collaboration, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Streaming Song (Audio), Top Song Sales Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album.
