Drake Has the Best Night Ever, Breaks Adele's Record With 13 Wins at 2017 Billboard Music Awards
Drake has got some more accomplishments to drink to.
The More Life artist needed "One Dance" with just about everyone at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, where the 30-year-old performer broke Adele's record for most wins by an artist in a single night, nabbing 13, and looking damn happy while doing it.
Drake brought his whole team, including his dad -- who was rocking a purple suit -- onstage for his Top Artist acceptance speech that closed out the show, where to be fair, he gave credit to Adele assuming she'd be "back on top" whenever her next album drops. The team then exited the stage booze in hand.
Afterward, the rapper looked positively giddy as he posed with his 13 awards, which obviously couldn't fit in just one hand.
