Drake takes on gamer in Fortnite battle with 600000 people tuning in


Hey, Drake, definitely come back for more game streams.

While Drizzy, Travis and Smith-Schuster were the only stars playing with Ninja, Lil Yachty and noted gamer Logic were watching. The Battle Royale feature was added late in 2017, hopping on the trend started by last year's most popular game, Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. That said, it's not too often where these many high-profile people join forces to play a game like this in the wee hours of the night (in the US). Unlike PUBG however, Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free.

How do celebrities do anything nowadays?

The competitive duo, who are thought to have bagged the biggest audience for a personal, non-tournament stream, were later joined by Travis Scott and National Football League player JuJu Smith-Schuster.

"Bless me with the hands", Travis told Drake.

As luck would have it, even Drake found out who Ninja was during the streamer's "only in 2018" rise to fame, and they ended up playing Fortnite together on the same stream.

Ninja is one of the most popular Fortnite streamers out there, with him boasting over 3 million followers and his channel receiving almost 90 million views at the time of this writing.

"And that's why I need one match, got the controlpad in my hand, one more time before I go " - Drake, probably.

Other highlights include Drake talking up pineapple pizza and giving his thoughts on how Fortnite can improve. Ninja laughing at Scott's requests for Band-Aids.

File-piracy magnate Kim Dotcom also popped on for a second.
