Drake has broken yet another record, but this one has nothing to do with music. Wednesday night, Drake teamed up with pro-gamer Tyler “Ninja Blevins, rapper Travis Scott, and Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to create a star-studded team. The team smashed the previous Twitch record of 380,000 viewers bringing in a whopping 630,000 viewers.

That was pretty lit man, about as lit as it can get. Drake said he had to pack for a flight tomorrow so hes out... We literally made history tonight.


The highlight of the night came when Travis Scott started bumping Drake's hit single "God's Plan" as Drake revived him. The insane numbers are yet another example of the growing popularity of online gaming and eSports. Drake admitted he has been playing Fortnite for a couple of months while taking breaks in the studio and thinks Epic Games should work on improving existing maps rather than developing new maps.
