Drake Win Big AT 2019 IHEARTRADIO AWARDS
Drake may currently be overseas on his Assassination Vacation Tour, but he’s certainly not out of sight, out of mind. The OVO leader was recognized at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday night (March 14) in Los Angeles as he won multiple awards at the ceremony that is now in its sixth year.
Drizzy was up for several categories, and though he lost out on Hip-Hop Artist of the Year (which went to Cardi B), the OVO leader beat out Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone and Shawn Mendes for Male Artist of the Year. His chart-topping hit, “God’s Plan,” also won for Hip-Hop Song of the Year, beating out his own records “In My Feelings” and “Nice for What,” as well as Cardi’s “I Like It” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin and Post Malone’s “Psycho” with Ty Dolla $ign. He also won for Hip-Hop Album of the Year with Scorpion, and Most Thumbed Up Song of the Year with “God’s Plan.”
In related Drizzy news, his son’s mother, Sophie Brussaux, was spotted in the VIP section of night one of his three-night Paris tour stops. According to TMZ, the pair are co-parenting successfully and Drake has really bonded with their son, Adonis—and he even appears to have recently added a picture of Adonis to his tattoo collection as well.
As for other notable winners at 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, The Weekend’s My Dear Melancholy took home the award for R&B Album of the Year, while Drake’s “Look Alive” collaborator BlocBoy JB won Best New Hip-Hop Artist.
