Drake is set to receive the prestigious Artist of the Decade Award at the forthcoming 2021 Billboard Music Awards.
The coveted prize ranks the best-performing artists based on their activity on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the Billboard 200 chart, social media data and touring revenue from Billboard Boxscore during the period of December 5, 2009 to September 28, 2019. Billboard revealed that in addition to Drizzy holding the title for most Billboard Music Awards at 27 (setting the record for 12 wins in 2019), the OVO head scored a total of nine No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, 33 top 10 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 and 18 No 1. songs and 69 top 10 entries on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart — all of them marking the most of the decade of any artist.
