Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, producer, and entrepreneur Aubrey Drake Graham known worldwide as Drake/ Champagne Papi will be honored as the Artist of the Decade in the forthcoming 2021 Billboard Music Awards scheduled to take place on May 23rd, 2021.
The rapper who has been dropping smashing hits since 2010 and topping charts emerged as the top winner among other top musicians as Billboard’s Top Artists of the Decade.
According to Billboard, Drake’s dominance during the last decade wins him top honors in the overall top artist category. He was ranked the best-performing artist based on his performance and activities on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and the Billboard 200 albums tally. Other methodology used were social media data and touring revenue from Billboard Boxscore, during the last decade.
Drake first appearance on the Billboard charts was in 2009 and has since then been always on the charts with nine number one debuts on the Billboard 200 Album chart starting from his first long-playing vinyl record (LP), ‘Thank Me Later’ in 2010 and his latest number one album ‘Care Package’ in 2019.
