Drake Accepts Artist of the Decade Award With Son Adonis at 2021 Billboard Music Awards
On Sunday night (May 23), Drake accepted Billboard‘s Artist of the Decade Award at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards.
Honored at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Drake’s OVO team, along with his parents, presented him with the prestigious award. His manager, Future the Prince, had glowing praise for the self-proclaimed 6 God, labeling him as “the most kind, selfless, generous person we know.”
After viewers watched a montage highlighting his lofty achievements, Drake sauntered onstage with his son Adonis by his side. He presented him the award and then humbly discussed his journey to greatness.
“I’m really self-conscious about my music, and even if I do a good job, I always wonder how I could have done it better,” he said. “I rarely ever celebrate anything. And just for anyone watching this wondering how this happened, that’s really the answer — it’s being so unsure how you’re getting it done that you just kinda keep going in the hopes of figuring out the formula.”
He added: “I know I’ve spent an incalculable amount of hours trying to analyze all the things that I’ve did wrong, but tonight for once, I’m sure as hell we did something right.”
Headlined by his nine No. 1s on the Billboard 200, with his latest coming in 2019 (Care Package), Drake’s dominance began in 2010 with his debut album Thank Me Later. On the Hot 100 side, he banked six No. 1s during that span and shattered a bevy of chart records, including the most Hot 100 top 10s (45, to-date) and overall entries (232). Drake’s supremacy earned him the crown on Billboard’s Top Artists of the 2010s chart.
Shortly after accepting his Artist of the Decade Award at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, Drake threw himself a major after-party surrounded by his father, son Adonis and friends.
Renting out the 70,000 capacity SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, the Canadian artist hosted a dinner party on the 50-yard line to mark his achievement. Aside from having his name and “Artist of the Decade” plastered on the massive screen inside the stadium, champagne towers and bars were set up throughout the entire stadium. Drake reportedly made his way to the venue after dining at The Nice Guy and took in a massive light show set to “Toosie Slide.” Other artists that made it to the event included the likes of Chris Brown, DJ Khaled, Doja Cat, SZA and The Weeknd.
