Drake Sets a Billboard Music Awards Record, Roasts Kevin Hart in Viral Instagram Post

Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards belonged to one man: Drake.

The Canadian rapper took home 13 awards in Las Vegas, including Top Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album. This was enough to top Adele’s 2012 record of 12 wins in one night on the heels of her album “21.”

For Drake, it was his 2016 album “Views” that cleaned up at the awards. The quadruple-platinum album won every category it was nominated in and propelled Drake to the new record.

During the awards, Drake wore Tom Ford, but later wore changed into white Stone Island tracksuit and white-on-white Nike Air Force 1 Low sneakers while posing with his trophies in the press room. The rapper’s kicks of choice can be purchased from nike.com for $90.

After the show, Drake had some fun on Instagram by sharing photos with friends and family. In one post, the rapper poked fun at comedian Kevin Hart, attempting to make sense of the funnyman’s endorsement deal with Nike.

“Me and the guy from whatever buddy buddy comedy is coming out this year #CantNameOneMovie #HeHasANikeDeal #HowSway #ICantExplain,” Drake wrote.

The post currently has more than 900,000 likes and nearly 3,500 comments on Instagram, making it one of the artist’s most popular shares of the evening.
