He encouraged artists to love and compliment each other.
Drizzy cleaned up at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, taking home 12 awards of the 17 categories he was nominated. The rapper made Game of Thrones fans proud when he mentioned Arya Stark in his acceptance speech after he won the Top 200 Album award, recognizing her for “putting in that work” during the Battle of Winterfell.
“Thank you to everybody who gave me their time, their energy, stayed away from their family and friends while we were trying to complete this,” he said. “I always had a dream of doing a double album and I finally did it so now I’ll never do it again.” Drake also thanked Billboard and said he needed a glass of champagne before adding, “Hey, shout-out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week. Ay!”
When Drake returned to the stage to accept the Top Male Artist award, he gave a nod to ScHoolboy Q who recently said in an interview that Drake gets hate for no reason. Q called Drake “one of the greats” and said , “If Drake is trash, you n*ggas stop giving him 50 billion streams, you get what I’m saying? ‘Cause y’all all listening to it, bruh, it’s too many streams…You just don’t wanna say it.”
On the BBMA stage Drake said, “This one means a lot to me because it’s an artist award and I just wanna say that we just got back from tour recently in Europe. We spent a lot of nights talking to each other. We spent a lot of nights conversing. We’ve obviously had an unfortunate series of losses within our business. I just want to encourage everybody to let other artists know how you feel about them. Let them know that you love them, respect them, while we’re all still here.”
