Reacting to the good news, the Hotline Bling rapper wrote on Instagram: I am beyond grateful for this milestone. Thank you for listening. Have fun celebrating Drake and well see you on the Summer Sixteen tour.
Its that time of year again as Eurovision will be back on our screens on 14 May. Comedian Petra Mede will have the honours of hosting this years song contest in Stockholm, Sweden on 14th May following the semi-finals on the 9th and 10th.
