Drake makes history once again.
Last night (May 1), the OVO Sound founder swept up the Ws at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, winning 12 trophies on the night. His latest round of awards brings his grand total to 27, which makes him the most awarded artist in Billboard Music Awards history.
"27 Billboard Awards so floored can’t even really register it but scroll to the 4th pic to see my most flattering shot of the night," Drake said about his newest feat in an Instagram post.
The Toronto native beat out other shining stars like Cardi B, Travis Scott, Post Malone and more in categories like Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Rap Album and Top Streaming Song (Video).
While accepting his trophy for Top Male Artist, Drizzy gave thanks to ScHoolboy Q, who recently said Drake was an underrated rapper.
“ScHoolboy Q said something really nice about me…I didn’t feel like being that guy that’s too cool. I reached out to him. I let him know it meant the world to me," Drizzy said during the speech.
ScHoolboy let loose his Drizzy praise during an interview on Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning. Speaking with show hosts Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg, Q said Drizzy's sheer numbers speak to his popularity.
“If Drake is trash, you niggas stop giving him 50 billion streams,” ScHoolboy Q said. “Cause y’all all listening to it, bruh, it’s too many streams. Y’all listening to him, you just don’t wanna say it.”
