“Billboard Awards, I claimed 13 out in Vegas like Sureños,” Drake rapped on “Diplomatic Immunity” in 2018. With 27 BBMAs under his belt, the 6 God is set to be namedBillboard‘s Artist of the Decade at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards on May 23.
Drake has ruled the Billboard charts over the course of his decorated career, which earned him top artist honors on the publication’s decade-ending chart. Drizzy currently holds the chart record for most Top 10s on the Hot 100 and has the most overall entries of all-time on the elusive chart.

Drake and Billboard have enjoyed a good relationship in the past and he’ll be in attendance once again this year after last making an appearance in 2019. The Toronto superstar is nominated for seven awards, including top artist at the 2021 award show.
In March, Drake became the first artist to ever debut three songs that occupied the top three slots on the Billboard Hot 100 in a given week thanks to his Scary Hours 2 EP.
Rounding out Billboard’s Top 10 Artists of the 2010s list includes appearances by Post Malone, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and more.
Drizzy is still holding Certified Lover Boy hostage. He last promised it would be delivered by April, but the month came and went without an update from Drake. The only thing he released was his candle line, which is supposed to smell like the 6 God himself.
Tune into the 2021 Billboard Music Awards at 8 p.m. ET on May 23. The broadcast will take place live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on NBC.
