Drake's Son Adonis Leaves Fans in Awe at Billboard Music Awards

Drake left fans awestruck when he brought his son Adonis Graham out on stage to accept the Artist of the Decade award at the Billboard Music Awards.

The Canadian rapper, 34, beamed ear to ear as he walked on stage holding his three-year-old son's hand for the event, which took place on Sunday night.

The "God's Plan" hitmaker was introduced to the stage after a reel showed off his biggest achievements, including a record 232 entries on the Billboard charts, and 45 top 10 chart positions. He was also the first artist to debut at the top three spots on the Hot 100 chart in the same week.

Drake dedicated the award to his collaborators, his peers, his family and finally his son— who held the trophy for the duration of his speech.

While it was obviously a big night for Drake, who also took home the Top Streaming Song Artist award, it was his son who stole the show and was the subject of hundreds of tweets on social media.

Twitter user @erintaylor84 posted: "Ok Adonis , you're adorable #DrakeDecade."

"NO he didn't bring ADONIS I CANNOT EVEN #BillboardMusicAwards #DrakeDecade," @SandraJO_ wrote.

Another user, with the handle @PrviseBlvck, said: "Drake must have a picture of Adonis holding the artist of the decade award as his next album artwork #DrakeDecade #BBMAs #BBMAs2021."

"Let's talk about how adorable Adonis is!!! #DrakeDecade #BBMAs," @BLM_004 added.

@sassygirlcanada said: "Congratulations to Drake on a well deserved award and accomplishment! Adonis is beyond adorable! #BBMAs #DrakeDecade #BBMAs2021."

"#DrakeDecade he brought out Adonis ITS SO CUTE AND ADORABLE !!!! Father Drake is so sexy!!! #BBMAs2021," @dig_jettsetter tweeted.

Fans also joked that they would deal with whoever made Adonis cry, after he erupted into tears at the end of his father's speech.

The occasion proved to be an important one for Drake as he became candid about his struggle with accepting success as part of his winning speech.

"The truth is, I'm bad at taking compliments," Drake admitted. "I'm really self-conscious about my music. Even if I do a good job, I always wonder how I could have done it better. I rarely celebrate anything."

He added: "For anyone who's watching this that's wondering how this happened, you know that's really the answer. It's being so unsure of how you're getting it done that you just kind of keep going in the hopes of figuring out the formula. Feeling so lucky and blessed that the fear of losing it keeps you up at night."

He added that, regardless the amount of time he's spent analyzing everything he's done wrong, he feels he has done something right to be accepting the Artist of the Decade award.

Drake's big win comes ahead of the release of his sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy later this year.
