The 2017 Billboard Music Awards which held last night produced a new record holder as Drake surpassed Adele to become the biggest single year winner with 13 wins, including top artiste, top male artiste, top rap artiste, top song sales artiste, top hot 100 artiste and many more.

Adele who held the record since 2012 when she swooped a whooping 12 titles from her epic “21” album, was absent from the awards alongside fellow nominees such as Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, the Weeknd, twenty one pilots, and Shawn Mendes.

The “One Dance” crooner stole the night with a compelling and energetic performance at the T-Mobile Arena Las Vegas, and the end of which he welcomed almost two dozen people on stage including his father, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj whom he called the love of his life.

The Chainsmokers – who tied Drake with 22 nominations – won four awards while Beyonce and Twenty one pilots carted away five awards each. Other winners on the night include Justin Timberlake (Top radio song/top selling song), Blake Shelton (Top country artiste) and Zayn (Best New Artiste)
