For his performance at the Billboard Music Awards, Drake took things outside to the famed Fountains of Bellagio at the Bellagio Las Vegas. Standing in the middle, he performed “Gyalchester” from his recent More Life album. Drake was joined by Baka. The whole moment ended with a fireworks display. Watch below. Drake’s appearance at the Billboard Music Awards tonight marks his first time performing at an award show since joining Rihanna for “Work” at the BRITs in February 2016.
Before the ceremony began, Drake had already won 10 awards, including Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album (for Views), and Top R&B Song (for “One Dance” featuring WizKid and Kyla). With 22 total nominations, he ties with The Chainsmokers for the most nominations this year.
