Drake Dethrones Taylor Swift As The Most-Awarded Artist In Billboard Music Awards’ History!
Taylor Swift and all her snakes couldn’t keep Drake from passing her and her 23 wins at the Billboard Music Awards. She was the most-awarded artist in the ceremony’s history, but that all changed last night at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
Drake took home a ridiculous 12 awards last night, which means he now has 27 total wins at the ceremony. It was a huge night for Drake as he won Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Streaming Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Rap Album, Top Rap Artist, and more.
Meanwhile, Swift was nominated for just two awards. She lost both of them. In her defense though, it has been a bit of an “off” year for her. She’s expected to drop a new album soon, so she might be coming for Drake in 2020.
While accepting the Top Artist award, Drake made sure to thank his momma, Sandi Graham.
I just want to thank my mom for her relentless effort in my life. 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 ride. So, thank you, I appreciate it.
Earlier in the night, while he was accepting one of his many awards, Drake gave a little shoutout to Arya Stark for “putting in that work” during the epic Battle of Winterfell on the last episode of Game of Thrones.
By the way, Ariana Grande took home the award for Top Female Artist and Cardi B won the award for Top Female Rap Artist. Cardi also won the award for Top Rap Song. To see a full list, click on this link.
