Diehard Game of Thrones Fan Drake Shouts Out Arya Stark While Winning a Billboard Music Award
Northerners stick together! Canadian rapper Drake proved that folks from the snowy North never stop supporting one another when he shouted out Game of Thrones' youngest Stark. The 32-year-old rapper won the Top Billboard 200 Album for his hit album Scorpion and graciously went onstage to accept the honour. He gave thanks to his friends and family that helped make the album come true, which included smash singles like "I'm Upset" (with that iconic Degrassi reunion music video), and "In My Feelings."
"Thank you to the Billboards, I need a glass of champagne . . . and oh, shout-out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week, eh!" Drake said onstage, dropping the Game of Thrones reference that immediately had fans in their feelings (pardon the pun) and reliving said work from the former Faceless Men student.
Of course, Drake was talking about the moment Arya Stark put her several years of training to use against the series's supernatural baddie and straight up murked the Night King. We don't make the rules, but it feels like this calls for some kind of collaboration. The show's final season is already airing, but that doesn't mean Drake can't drop an inspired record similar to the ones on the season eight soundtrack, right? Just putting it out there!
