It was a massive celebration as Drake officially became the Billboard’s Artist of the Decade. He took to the stage to accept the award with his 3-year-old son, Adonis.

In his speech, he spoke about how finding the right formula to making his music has been a journey and how he still doesn’t understand it himself.
“Even if I do a good job I always wonder if I could have done better,” he said. “I rarely celebrate anything.”
“For anyone who’s watching this that’s wondering how this happened, you know that’s really the answer. It’s being so unsure of how you’re getting it done that you just kind of keep going in the hopes of figuring out the formula. I didn’t really write a grandiose speech about how to make it work or what it took, ’cause you know, to be really honest with you I don’t quite understand it myself,” he added.
OVO Sound shared an emotive short documentary showcasing how Drake has become the best-performing artists of the last 10 years.
This is based on activity on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and the Billboard 200 albums tally, as well as social media data and touring revenue from Billboard Boxscore.

His son got a bit overwhelmed as Drake lifted him up to show him to the crowd, the loud noise scared him, and he hugged Drake’s leg while crying widely.
