Roommates, Kanye West had a very big night at the recent 2020 Billboard Music Awards, as he was one of the night’s biggest winners securing four awards in the Christian category. To celebrate his success, he took to his Twitter account and posted a tweet accompanied with a video to thank Billboard and also his fans.
Kanye West took home four Billboard Awards for his record-breaking album “Jesus Is King” in the following Christian categories, Top Gospel Artist, Top Christian Album, Top Gospel Album, and Top Gospel Song.
Ye beat out the likes of legendary gospel artist Kirk Franklin in some of those categories, so it’s clear that his album was incredibly successful to beat those who have been in gospel music for years. Additionally, there have been rumors that Kanye is working on a “Jesus Is King” sequel with Dr. Dre, but we’ll have to wait on more information about that.
After he swept the Billboard Awards, Kanye headed to Twitter to properly thank everyone involved for his win, writing:
“Thank God for the favor the increase and these YEEZY SLIIIIIIIDZZZZ. Thank Billboard awards for the 9 nominations and 4 wins. Invite me next time and I’ll pull up.”
The tweet also threw a little shade at Billboard since Ye suggested that his invitation to the show may have been lost in the mail, which clearly left a bad taste in his mouth, but he ended up winning so we guess it’s all good.
