Drizzy also won some awards for his landmark Views album in categories like Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Rap Album. His massive hit single “One Dance” featuring WizKid and Kyla won for Top R&B Collaboration, Top R&B Song, and Top Streaming Song. Adele previously held the record after winning 12 Billboard Music Awards last year. “Hold tight, Adele,” Drake said while accepting his award Top Artist. “When the new ting drops, you’ll get the record back.”

Drake also thank folks like Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne for helping him over his career. “I want to say, Nicki Minaj, I’m so glad we found our way back because I love you and I could never ever see it any other way,” he added. “I want to say, Lil Wayne, if it wasn’t for the risk you took, none of us would be here tonight.”
