Drake cleans up at the 2017 Billboard Awards
Last night, the Billboard Awards 2017 hosted by Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens aired, and it was filled with fire performances, acceptance speeches and memorable moments by some of our favorite celebrities in Las Vegas. Diddy, Celine Dion, and Nicki Minaj were some of the few that took the stage, however it was a triumphant night for Drake.
Drake made history by beating out Adele with the most awards received in a single night. In 2012 Adele won 12 BBMAS, but Drake took home a whopping 13 awards.
One of the top awards the "Views" artist took home was "Top Artist" of the year!
According to Billboard he also won the following awards "Drake also won Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Rap Artist, and took home awards for song sales, song streams and several rap and R&B categories on his way to lucky 13," [but that's not all, he also won] Top Male Artist."
During his acceptance speech for his final award of the night, he made sure to thank his Young Money family and his father. He even brought them all on the stage:
"I got my whole family up here, look at my dad looking all sharp. I got the man [Lil Wayne] that's responsible for me being here. I got the love of my life [Nicki Minaj] up here too. I wanna say hold tight Adele because when the new ting drops, you'll forward back to get the record back, but uh someone once wise once told me uh, life is like toilet paper, you're either on a roll or taking sh*t from an a**hole."
Congratulations to Drake and the entire Young Money Team! "More Life" his new album is available now. Let's see how many awards that body of work earns him next year.
