AceShowbiz - Rap superstar Drake will be feted with the Artist of the Decade honour at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards.
The "God's Plan" hitmaker will follow in the footsteps of previous winners Eminem and Mariah Carey when he picks up the accolade on 23 May, after scoring nine number one albums from 2009 to 2019 - the most of any artist during the same period.
Drake also boasts the most top 10 singles on America's Billboard Hot 100 in the same decade, with 33 hits.
The title is the latest addition to the hip-hop star's trophy cabinet - prior to the Artist of the Decade news, he was already the most recognised musician in Billboard Music Awards history, with 27 prizes to his name, and he's nominated for a further seven at the upcoming show.
"As a little girl, I always dreamed about being a singer and sharing my love of music with the world. Years later, to receive the Billboard Music Awards Icon Award is hard to fathom," Pink stated in response to the honor. "I feel so honoured to join the ranks of music idols like Cher, Garth Brooks, Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder. It's a true 'pinch me' moment and I feel humbled and blessed."
