Drake Shows Up on Twitch, Breaks Live-Streaming Record

Drake Shows Up on Twitch, Breaks Live-Streaming Record”

Of course, Drake's 36.8 million followers on the platform, combined with Scott's 3.23 million and Smith-Schuster's 538,000 followers helped Ninja promote the stream. Tagging along with popular Twitch streamer Ninja, he brought his star power (and a few of his famous friends) to the popular gaming platform, catapulting the view count past the Twitch record of 360k. At the time of writing, reports suggest the peak viewing figure hit 635,429 and the stream ended at around 8.30am GMT.

In less than two months, Ninja has gained 50,000 subscribers to his Twitch channel. What a team. What a superb collection of talent. The resulting stream broke viewing records for Twitch, and became an Extremely Big Deal online pretty much immediately.

After Drizzy could be heard eating something while playing, he said: "Man honestly, I'm usually eating healthy but I had pizza tonight because it's so late".

Watch the Twitch stream above. Players have to scramble for resources and weapons and survive fighting each other, instead of the zombies in the original game. Watch as Twitch Streamer Ninja uses a grenade to set up an awesome and hilarious takedown on a foe!

Ninja also received donations throughout the night, but due to the sheer volume of them, he didn't call any of them out while playing.

Fortnite is a video game made by Epic Games.

Ch-ch-check out the clips (below) for the team game action and Drake and Ninja's exclusive play time. Drake also admits that he's been playing Fortnite while he takes breaks from recording his new album.

As the game continues, the island, or playable area, effectively shrinks, forcing remaining players together - just like on PlayerUnknown's Battleground.

The two played Fortnite: Battle Royale on the stream for almost an hour.
