We can always count on the Billboard Music Awards to honor best-selling artists who have been ruling the charts all year long and they certainly delivered this year. Olivia Rodrigo was the biggest winner of the night with seven awards, closely followed by Drake with five.

Rodrigo picked up awards for the top new artist and top female artist, but also came out victorious in five more categories—the top Hot 100 artist, top streaming songs artist, top radio songs artist, top Billboard 200 Global artist, and top Billboard 200 album with Sour.

She was in the running for several awards in the song categories with “Good 4 U”, but lost many of them to “Stay” by The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber, starting with the top Hot 100 song, top streaming song, and top Billboard Global 200 song.

Rodrigo also missed out on the top artist awards, which went to Drake. He managed to defeat Doja Cat, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd to win the biggest award of the night. The Canadian rapper won another five BBMA Awards on Sunday, bringing his total to 34 and extending his record as the most-awarded artist in the show’s history.

The 2022 Billboard Music Awards took place on May 15 in Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena, with Sean “Diddy” Combs hosting the ceremony.
