This comes as no surprise to anyone who is still keeping up with music in this day and age that Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham is officially the biggest music artiste on the planet.
The Billboard music awards (BBMA) is the second biggest music platform in the world after the Grammys.
In last night’s event held at the opulent Bellagio Fountain, Las Vegas, the biggest names in music and entertainment turned up in droves as expected to witness history been made by the Canadian native.
Music heavyweights which included Celine Dion, Madonna and Cher gave a well deserved standing ovation to Drake as he took home 13 awards last night, surpassing Adele previously held record of 12.
As the accolades keep pouring in, I think his (Drake’s) signing to Young Money/Cash Money is the smartest decision ever made by Lil Wayne.
At a time when YMCM is not all it used to be in terms of numbers in record sales, Darke made it absolutely certain that not only were his bosses well paid, he is the only artiste in the label that is still making sure YMCM stays relevant in mainstream music.
Nicki Minaj who was also signed to YMCM about the same time as Drizzy and the second biggest artiste on the label, has dipped in popularity and can’t hold a touch to Drake’s flying career at the moment.
Say what you want about this man but one thing we can all agree is he has an ear for a HIT song and he continues to deliver these hits.
Most of his songs are not my taste but I have to tell it like it is, he is unequivocally the number one artiste of this generation and can quite possibly pass as a G.O.A.T
