Drake Downs Shots As Instagram Live Viewers Record Smashed
They may have stopped us going to pubs, but lockdown has taught us that people can overcome physical barriers in their pursuit of drinking and socialising. Drake demonstrated this perfectly as he downed shots while helping to smash the record for the most viewers on an Instagram Live.
The Canadian rapper - who is currently self-isolating in his mansion in Toronto - joined fellow rapper Tory Lanez on his live show dubbed 'Quarantine Radio'.
The 33-year-old said: "I am checking in on Quarantine Radio from the Northside, coming live for all the ladies and all the gents."
Asked how he was keeping 'corona-free', he joked: "A glass of wine keeps the Rona away, boys."
After joining the stream, live viewers jumped from around 140,000 to 310,000 viewers, smashing Taylor Swift's previous record of 150,000 viewers, according to Urban Islandz.
To celebrate, Tory (real name Daystar Peterson) and Drake (real name Aubrey Drake Graham) downed some liquor as record-breaking numbers across the world watched on.
