Drake had social media buzzing during the early hours of Thursday morning (Mar. 15). The Canadian superstar took a break from the studio, to hop on his Playstation 4 to play Fortnite with professional esports player and popular Twitch streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. An event that’s been planned for days, Drake finally made time from his busy schedule to team up with Ninja shortly after midnight. After tweeting the live stream to his 36 million Twitter followers, Drizzy soon created a frenzy online, even getting artists like Lil’ Yachty, Logic and Travi$ Scott wanting to join in. Scott would eventually join the game action, along with NFL player JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Drake (PSN ID TheBoyDuddas) and Scott (PSN ID cactus_jackk92) teamed up with Ninja for about four hours of gaming action. The live stream set a new streaming record on Twitch, as over 600,000 viewers tuned in, easily smashing the previous record of 388,000 live concurrent viewers. During the stream Drake said he has been playing Fortnite for a month or two, and plays with his OVO crew as a much needed break from 20-hour recording sessions. The 6 God also revealed he has been recording most of his new album in Miami and in his home studio.
