Drake Plays Fortnite With Ninja, Helps Break Twitch Live Stream Record

Tyler "Ninja" Blevins is one of the top streamers that stream their "Fortnite" games on Twitch, but having Canadian rapper Drake guest on his stream as a teammate certainly helps. It also promised details on competitive play's first season will be shared in the next few weeks.

Rapper Drake confirmed he is vegetarian during a live stream on social media platform Twitch this week.

It was not long before the duo were joined by Megaupload founder Dotcom, rapper Travis Scott and Pittsburgh Steelers' player JuJu Smith-Schuster.

It all started with Drake following Ninja on Instagram and the two eventually got into contact with each other about getting some games in on Fortnite.

Twitch, which is owned by retail behemoth Amazon, saw in the success signs for future growth of the platform, in which video-game aficionados watch and interact with players online.

Only major eSports tournaments can begin to touch this new record, as the all-time highest number of concurrent viewers for all streams is still held by Eleague Major: Boston 2018 at a lofty 1.1 million viewers. His Jamaican-inspired track One Dance remains the second most streamed song ever on Spotify.

Forbes reports that Ninja garnered more than 10,000 subscribers, with each subscriber adding $3.50 to his revenue per month. Crossplay enabled Drake, a PS4 player, to play with Ninja on PC, according to Kotaku. Or maybe if Obama actually does decide to play the game. Epic Games announced on Thursday, March 15 that it will be hosting a "Celebrity Pro-Am" event at E3 featuring 50 celebrities and 50 pro gamers.
