Drake didn’t just dominate the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, he was the “Nonstop” winner.

The hip-hop artist picked up 12 awards Wednesday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, including Top Artist, bringing his total over the years to 27 —  the most of any artist in BBMAs history.

Thanks to his album Scorpion and the tracks “God’s Plan,” “In My Feelings” and “Nonstop,” Drake was also named Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Rap Artist, just to name a few.

During his multiple acceptance speeches, Drizzy thanked his mom for driving him to piano lessons and to the set of Degrassi: The Next Generation when he was a kid.

It was also a big night for Cardi B — who had the second highest total, including Top Rap Female Artist, Top Hot 100 Song, Top Selling Song and Top Radio Song. Other multiple award winners included Ella Mai, Ozuna and Bad Bunny. Mariah Carey performed a medley of her greatest hits and picked up the Icon Award.
