Let's hear it for the man of the hour!

After delivering an epic acceptance speech with plenty of shout outs to Vanessa Hudgens and Ludacris, plus performing inside the famed Fountains of Bellagio, Drake returned to the 2017 Billboard Music Awards stage one last time to break the record for most Billboard Music Awards won in a single year. 

Prince Michael Jackson presented the Top Artist honor to Drizzy, paying tribute to the late great Michael Jackson along the way. "I'm honored to be here at a show that meant so much to my father and made him the recipient of many awards. And now, it's time for the final and most prestigious award of the evening," he shared.

And that award, of course, went to the Views artist—meaning Drake dominated in a whopping 13 categories across the board.

Drake brought his entire entourage up to the stage with him, including his exceptionally dressed and super proud pops.

"I've got my whole family up here," the Toronto native gushed. "Look at my dad looking all sharp. I got the man [Lil Wayne] that's responsible for me being here. I got the love of my life, too."

Who would the love of his life be? None other than Nicki Minaj, who stood close by her longtime pal and frequent collaborator. We see those rosy cheeks, Nicki! 

"Someone wise once told me, life is like toilet paper. Your either on a roll or taking a...." Drake added, before trailing off into an expletive-filled rant that never made it to air. 

Suffice to say Drizzy is most definitely on a roll.
