Drake Wins 12 Billboard Awards—Makes History as Artist with Most Billboard Awards
Drake made history at the Billboard Music Awards as he won 12 of the 17 awards he was nominated for, including Top Artist of the year.
His wins last night have brought him to an all time high of 27 billboard awards, the highest of any artist and has propelled him to surpass Taylor Swift who previously held the title with 23 billboard awards.
While accepting one of his awards, he gave a special thanks to his mother.
I just want to thank my mom for her relentless effort in my life,” he said.
“I want to thank my mom for all the times you drove me to 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.”
