Joined By Son Adonis, Drake Receives Billboard Artist of the Decade Award

Drake accepted the trophy for Artist of the Decade at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 23. The Canadian rapper follows in the footsteps of Mariah Carey (1990s) and Eminem (2000s) by taking home the special award for the 2010s decade.

At the show, Drake walked out stage while holding hands his 3-year-old son, Adonis, who was adorably dressed down in a red flannel shirt. The hip hop star, 34, took the statue and handed it to his mini me, keeping his hand on Adonis’ shoulder to comfort him throughout the speech.

Following an introductory video, Drake humbly told the crowd, “That video was really full of a lot of confidence and bravado, but you know, the truth is I’m really bad at taking compliments.”

He went on, “I’m really self-conscious about my music. Even if I do a good job, I always wonder how I could have done it better. I rarely celebrate anything,” noting that he can sometimes feel “so lucky and blessed that the fear of losing it keeps you up at night.”

“I’ve spent an incalculable amount of hours trying to analyze all the things I did wrong but tonight, for once, I’m sure as hell we did something right,” continued the singer, who was dressed in a flawless white by Tom Ford, with a heart design shaved on his head.

Drake dedicated the award to his peers, whose music has him “tossing and turning at night trying to figure out what I should do next.”Champagne Papi then started saying, “To my beautiful family,” before Adonis began walking off stage. “Hey, wait, wait, wait,” Drake said while chasing his little boy. He hoisted Adonis up in the air for an emotional embrace. “To you! I wanna dedicate this award to you,” he told his son, whom he shares with artist Sophie Brussaux.
