The “Luckiest Man” award may also have to go to Drake after last night’s Billboard Music Awards, where he won a grand total of 13 awards.
 
Drake earned the award for Top Artist at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards Sunday night (May 21), bringing his grand total on the night to 13 awards. This amassing of awards breaks Adele‘s previous record for the most Billboard Music Awards earned in a single night (she won 12 in 2012 for her album 21).The More Life artist had no harsh words for the British singer, and actually comforted her: “I wanna say hold tight, Adele, ’cause when a new ting drops yeah you’ll fall back to get the record back,” he stated while standing next to his dad who he also gave a shout-out to.

 

In addition to the MC’s Top Artist award, he also earned a plethora of other awards such as Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album, Top Rap Tour, Top R&B Song, Top R&B Collaboration, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Streaming Song (Audio), Top Song Sales Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album.

After the award ceremony, Drake took to Las Vegas’ Bellagio Fountains which were clad with pyrotechnics to perform his song “Gyalchester” which was a fitting end to his historic night.
