There’s no question Drake was the man of the night on Sunday during the 2016 American Music Awards. Let us break it down for you.

The rapper walked into the annual awards show with a record-breaking 13 nominations and walked away with four major awards. We’d call that … WINNING.

Drizzy, who hadn’t won an AMA prior to Sunday’s festivities, picked up the awards for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album, Rap/Hip-Hop Song, Soul/R&B Song and Rap/Hip-Hop Artist.

The “Jumpman” rapper, clad in a black suit minus a tie, humbly accepted all four awards and even received one trophy from his friend, Canadian and Degrassi co-star, Nina Dobrev. “Me and Nina were on Degrassi together by the way. We’ve come a long way, you know? Congratulations on all your success,” he said after she presented the award.

During another speech, the 30-year-old, who was accompanied by his father, told the crowd, “For our genre, I just like to keep things excited and keep making music. Shout out to everybody that’s trying to do the same thing.”

Aside from having to deliver four acceptance speeches, Drake was the man behind one of the funniest Apple commercials now circulating the Web.

The visual, which debuted during the airing of the AMAs, shows a sweaty Drizzy pumping iron to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” before getting overwhelmed and falling with weights in hand.

The video is a followup to Swift’s Apple commercial from earlier this year. You might recall, Swift running to Drake’s “Jumpman” on a treadmill before tripping and falling flat on her face. Basically, the best commercial of the year.

“Yes,” Swift tweeted in response to the Canadian rapper’s video.
