Drake continued his record-breaking ways, taking home 13 honors at the Billboard Music Awards, including as top artist.

The Jewish rapper also won as top male artist, top Billboard 200 artist and top rap artist on Sunday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the way to snapping the Billboard awards mark of 12 held by Adele.

His other awards were for Top Billboard 200 Album for “Views,” Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Streaming Artist, Top Streaming Song (Audio) for “One Dance,” Top R&B Song for “One Dance,” Top R&B Collaboration for “One Dance,” Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album for “Views,” and Top Rap Tour.

Since releasing the album “Views” last year, which broke Billboard chart records, Drake has become one of the most popular artists in the world. His latest album, “More Life,” broke online streaming records when it was released in March.

Billboard is a publication that covers the top-selling artists and songs in the country each week.
