Drake’s adorable son Adonis steals the 2021 Billboard Music Awards

It was all about family for Drake as he was named Artist of the Decade at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.

In fact, the rapper-singer behind a remarkable string of hits — from “Best I Ever Had,” “Find Your Love” and “Hotline Bling” to “God’s Plan,” “In My Feelings” and “Toosie Slide” — had a group of family and friends onstage to present him with the honor outside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

And then Drake brought out his adorable 3-year-old son, Adonis — rocking blonde cornrows — and handed him the award: “You wanna hold it?”

“The truth is, I’m really bad at taking compliments,” he said in his acceptance remarks. “I’m really self-conscious about my music, and even if I do a good job I always wonder how I coulda done it better. I rarely celebrate anything.”

Of his staggering success, he said, “To be really honest with you, I don’t quite understand it myself. I just know that I’ve spent an incalculable amount of hours trying to analyze all the things I did wrong. But tonight, for once, I’m sure as hell we did something right. ”

Now Drake — who continues to rock a heart shaved into his head to promote his upcoming album, “Certified Lover Boy” — just needs to drop his next collection of hit bangers.
