While Drake looked sharp in a white three-piece suit, Adonis was decked out in a red flannel shirt and braids at the ceremony.

The rapper held Adonis’ hand as they walked onstage together and Drake kept his hand on the tot’s shoulder while giving his speech.

“I want to dedicate this award to my friends, I want to dedicate this award to my longtime collaborators,” he said.

“I want to dedicate this award to all my peers, all your decisions, and the music you make really does have me tossing and turning at night trying to figure out what I should do next. Thank you to my beautiful family.”

As Adonis burst into tears and tried to walk off, Drake laughed and lifted his son up to the microphone.

The One Dance singer kissed Adonis’ cheek and told him: “I want to dedicate this award to you!”

The Canadian artist holds the title for most Billboard Music Award wins after taking home 12 trophies in 2019, making his career total 27.

The Billboard Music Awards featured musical performances by DJ Khaled featuring H.E.R. and Migos, BTSBad Bunny, Karol G, Doja Cat and SZAThe Weeknd, Alicia Keys and many more.

Drake shares his only child, Adonis, with artist and former adult film star Sophie Brussaux.

Sophie – who was seen having dinner with Drake in Amsterdam in January 2018 – gave birth to their son in October of that year.

Last year, the God’s Plan singer discussed his decision to introduce his son to Instagram.

Drake shared a slew of sweet photos of Adonis, as well as him and Sophie with the toddler on social media in March 2020.

Before then, he had only ever shared photos of Adonis’ artwork, Father’s Day gift and birthday party decorations – but never any snaps of his mini-me himself.

Reflecting on his decision, Drake said he posted the photos because he wanted to “free himself” from “living under this blanket” of maintaining privacy as a celebrity.

“It was great for me. It was great to just share that with the world,” he said on Lil Wayne’s podcast Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne. 

“I just woke up one morning and I was like, you know what? This is just something that I want to do.”

“I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son.

“I don’t want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a ‘celebrity’ that I got to make everybody live under this blanket … I just wanted to free myself of that.”

Back in March, sources claimed that Drake is “ready to date” Kim Kardashian and started messaging her when she filed for divorce.

A source told Heat magazine: “Drake could never understand what Kim saw in Kanye – he was saying for years how he wasn’t the right guy for Kim and it would all end in tears.

“He was surprised it took her so long to realise, and started messaging her the moment it became clear that the divorce was inevitable.

“He’s ready to see her whenever she says the word, basically, and he’s confident that will happen fairly soon.”

More recently, he was linked to R&B singer Naomi Sharon after they collaborated on a song together.

Naomi’s now ex-fiance, fellow singer Jamie Sun, hinted that she cheated on him with Drake.
