Famous rap star Drake joins forces with Ninja in Fortnite, breaks the internet

It’s not much of a surprise to see the name of Tyler “Ninja” Blevins in another record-breaking story about Twitch, as the 26-years old pro gamer managed to shatter many numbers such as most subscribers at 180,000 and more than 3.5 million followers

One record was all what’s left for him to be crowned the absolute king of Twitch, and with a little help of famous rap celebrity Drake he managed to drive the most viewers count ever on the broadcast platform. Drake playing Fortnite is apparently all the internet needed, as viewership went up to an insane number peaking at more than 600,000 views in one of the most entertaining streams in Twitch history last night.

Ninja was streaming Fortnite: Battle Royale last night with Drake and several other celebrities, including Travis Scott and NFL player JuJu Smith-Schuster. And this stream set a new record on Twitch for the most concurrent viewers on an individual channel.

“Seeing a top gamer and musician come together on Twitch and unite their large and passionate communities is a cultural moment in terms of building awareness around the appeal of social video and it’s only going to grow from here,” said Twitch’s SVP of Marketing, Kate Jhaveri.

Previous record holders, including Dr DisRespect and Tyler “Tyler1” Steinkamp, reached over 300,000 concurrent viewers earlier this year—but Ninja absolutely shattered their previous marks.

After enjoying a successful career as a professional Halo player, Ninja made the switch to a full-time streamer of games like H1Z1 and PUBG. Fortnite’s meteoric rise in popularity has also brought even more success to Ninja, as he’s now reportedly making around half a million dollars each month just by streaming.

Tyler Belvins have been a Halo pro player for around seven years, in which he played with many household names like Cloud9 and Luminosity.
