Last week, Billboard announced that Hip-Hop superstar Drake will be awarded artists of the decade. And even though to many this doesn’t come as a shock, it is still one of his biggest accomplishments.
Over the last 10 years Drake has taken over the airwaves with hit after hit. The former Degrassi cast member turned Young Money protégé is responsible for five studio album that went at least 2x platinum.
Since the drop of 2010’s Thank me later, Drake has influence all of music. He even managed to break The Beatles record in 2018 for most top 10 songs in a year. Since that 2018 album: Scorpion, the star has been hinting that his time of dominance may soon be over.
After teasing a new album in December of last year, Drake released the Scary Hours 2 EP. The three-pack project included his eighth Hot 100 chart-topper “What’s Next“. Even with time away, Drizzy has proven that he really doesn’t miss.
Billboard released multiple decade-end charts, spotlighting the top artists in country, rock, R&B/hip-hop, Latin, Christian, gospel, dance/electronic and overall touring revenue between Dec. 1, 2009, and Sept. 30, 2019.
The OVO boss beat out fellow megastar contenders like Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, and Adele.
Be sure to tune into the 2021 Billboard Music Awards for Drake’s award and more to be given out. The show will be May 23 live on NBC.
What’s Next For Drake?
Drake has been hyping up his supposed next album “Certified Lover Boy” since December of 2020. To keep fans at bay he dropped the very popular Scary Hours 2 EP. However, those three song will only keep Drake fans waiting for so long.
And with the drop of J.Cole’s newest studio album, it should be interesting to see if Drake feels a little more inclined to drop CLB.
Regardless, we congratulate him on this amazing feet and look forward to adding the whole next album to our libraries.
