Taking to Instagram, the OVO head shared a screenshot of the feat with the caption, “Ok, I broke my records for the month now me and @stake need you to do your thing Bitcoin. The post was also followed by a video of him winning $5.13 million in a virtual roulette game, followed by a Bitcoin tracker showing $24,000 earned.
He followed this up with an Insta story of him out at a lavish dinner complete with an empty plate decorated with the words, “Just another celebration.”
This new feat is just one of Drake’s many Billboard wins.
In 2021, he was the first artist to simultaneously debut on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100 with “Certified Lover Boy” and single “Way 2 Sexy.” He also made history in June when his new album “Honestly, Nevermind” and 21 Savage-assisted single “Jimmy Cooks” both hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100 at the same time.
