Congrats are in order for Drake as he beats yet another groundbreaking record. Last night (May 1), during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Drizzy became the most awarded artist in the ceremony’s history.
On the topic of his multiple wins, Drizzy took home 12 awards, which brings his career to a total of 27. The 32-year-old rapper beat out top competitors for awards such as Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Streaming Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album for Scorpion, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Male Artist, Top Rap Album for Scorpion and Top Streaming Song (Video) for “In My Feelings.”
During one of his acceptance speeches, the Thank Me Later rapper paid homage to his mother for her continuous support throughout the years. He revealed that as a result, they are both on “one hell of a ride.”
“I just want to thank my mom for her relentless effort in my life,” Drizzy told the crowd while accepting his award for Top Artist. “I want to thank my mom for all the times you drove me to piano when I didn’t want to take piano. All the times you drove me to basketball and hockey — that clearly didn’t work out. All the times you drove me to Degrassi. No matter how long it took me to figure out what I wanted to do, you were always there to give me a ride, and now we’re on one hell of a ride.”
Moving forward, Drake doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Last month, during his Assassination Vacation Tour, Drake revealed to the London crowd that he’s going to start working on new music.
“But I think what I’m going to do after this is go home and I’ma make a new album so I can come back to London next year and so we can do this again,” Drake said to the crowd.
