DRAKE WINS BIG AT 2016 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS, FAVORITE HIP-HOP ALBUM, ARTIST AND SONG
Drake has pretty much won 2016. The Canadian rapper celebrated his many wins at the 2016 American Music Awards tonight (Nov. 20). Out of 13 nominations, Drake won his first AMA of the night with Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album for April’s Views.
“I want to thank the city of Toronto. And of course, I want to thank the fans,” said Drake behind tinted shades as he accepted his first award of the night.
“For our genre, I just like to keep things exciting,” said Drake when he accepted his second trophy, the award for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist. The OVO captain also plugged his new upcoming project More Life, slated to drop next month and of course made sure to bust out a little fake patois.
“More chune for ya head, so watch how you speak my name, ya know?” Watch that below.
Finally, towards the end of the night, Aubrey hit the trifecta by earning a third AMA for Favorite Hip-Hop Song thanks to the smash hit “Hotline Bling.”
It was Drake himself who rapped “Views already a classic” and so far this year, he’s proven the validity of these words. Views was the first album of 2016 to go double platinum in sales and has been streamed over a billion times. As of August, the LP is triple platinum. There’s no doubt the key to Views is ostentacious, genre-blending bangers. The lead single “One Dance” was Dake’s first Billboard No. 1
