Drake had a whopping 12 wins at Wednesday’s Billboard Music Awards. That brings his BBMA total to 27 — bumping former reigning record holder Taylor Swift for the most BBMAs, who currently has 23.
Drake’s major wins of the night included Top Artist, Top Male Artist, and Top Billboard 200 Artist. The rapper took the opportunity to thank his mama in his acceptance speech for Top Artist, saying, “I just wanna 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. You know, 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 all on one hell of a ride."
Drake shared on Instagram, next to a few shots from the night, “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.”
He also made “Game of Thrones” fans everywhere swoon when he gave a nod to the hit HBO show while accepting for Top Billboard 200 Album. Before exiting the stage he remarked, “Hey, shoutout to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week.”
Looks like he had a great night!
