Drake walked into the evening with 17 nominations and he did pretty well for himself throughout the night. He now has a total of 27 Billboard Music Awards.
The “God’s Plan” rapper won a number of awards at the show, including Billboard Top 200 Album, Top Male Artist and Top Artist. During his many acceptance speeches, the 32-year-old urged his fellow artists and fans to spread the love and not shy away from telling people how you feel.
“We just got back from our tour recently in Europe and we spent a lot of nights talking to each other and conversing. We’ve obviously had an unfortunate series of losses within our business and I want to encourage everybody to let other artists know how you feel about them,” he said during his Top Male Artist speech.
Drake continued in that speech, “We put in a lot of work. This is our thing. We got to protect it. I encourage you to show somebody some love. Tell them you love their music and love what they do.”
Drake made a point to thank his mom, Sandi Graham, whom he raps about in many of his songs. He called her dedication to his career a “relentless effort in my life.” Winning that specific award was “surreal” and “unbelievable” for him.
