Twitch steamer, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is one of the most popular gamers on the platform and his fame has hit new heights with last night’s gaming session with YMCMB artist, Drake joining the party. Ninja had been playing songs from the Canadian rapper as well dropping hints for a few days during his past streams, but when Drake posted a tweet to the game the numbers that night went through the roof with over, 600,000 viewers. Not to mention earning over half a million dollars every single month according to Forbes. This look likes it takes the cake for the most viewed non tournament stream on a personal account.
“Ninja and Drake’s Fortnite livestream on Twitch attracted 628K concurrent viewers, setting a new milestone in terms of peak concurrent viewers on an individual’s channel,” said Twitch SVP Marketing, Kate Jhaveri,. “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.”
Drake wasn’t the only big name to join in on the fun of playing Fortnite, rapper Travis Scott and NFL rookie Juju Smith-Schuster got in on the 100 man battle royale.
