Drake on Twitch breaks record for most-viewed stream
Last night record for most-viewed stream by a single player was broke when pro-gamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins assembled an unexpected group to play the wildly-popular sandbox shooter Fortnite. Ninja was joined with JuJu Smith-Schuster NFL rookie, rapper Travis Scott, and — drum roll please — pop superstar Drake.
First of all Ninja played with Drake for few minutes and then all four got together to play for some team action. Till the time the stream was trending on Twitter and at its peak it got 630,000 concurrent viewers breaking the previous record of 388,000 viewers for a single player stream.
Some highlights include Drake discussing pineapple on pizza (he’s in favour); Drake and Ninja talking about the future development of Fortnite (Drake thinks they should concentrate on improving existing maps rather than creating new ones); and plenty of teamwork to help make the dream work (including Drake dropping weapons for Ninja). Drake said he’s been playing Fortnite for a month or two, watching Ninja on YouTube while taking breaks from recording his next album.
Ninja earlier used to get around 70,000 live viewers per steam but this time he got over half a million viewers and that’s quite an achievement. But even before this it was reported by Forbes that Ninja earns around $560,000 a month from his subscriptions alone. Now that’s a lot.
