The 34-year-old rapper will receive the Artist of the Decade Award at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs), Billboard announced on Tuesday.
Billboard’s Artist of the Decade award is based upon the “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, from Dec. 5, 2009, through Sept. 28, 2019,” per a press release from Billboard.
Drake, who is the most awarded artist in the show’s history — having collected 27 awards total — has scored eight No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and garnered an impressive nine No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, the latter being the most of any artist over the past decade.
Similarly, over the entirety of his illustrious career, the “Hotline Bling” crooner is the only solo male artist to have over 50 career weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and a record 232 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with 45 of the songs being top 10s.
