Drake Absolutely Won The Billboard Music Awards

In case you missed this year’s Billboard Music Awards, here’s a recap: Drake.

Yeah, that’s basically all.

The Canadian rapper totally stole the show. He won a record-breaking amount of single year awards, taking home 13 honors for his music.

His acceptance speeches were definitely highlights of the already exciting broadcast. At one point, Drake had his whole Young Money crew, as well as his dad, up on stage and referred to Nicki Minaj as “the love of my life” while accepting his accolades.

He also took a moment to advocate for spreading love… And demonstrated his dedication by shooting his shot with Vanessa Hudgens, who co-hosted the event.

Of course, Nicki wasn’t pleased. How could he turn on the love of his life like that?

Her reaction was hilarious. Vanessa, what’s good?

The rapper then jetted to the Bellagio’s famous fountain for a performance of his hit “Gyalchester” from the More Life mixtape.
