It seems things just blew up from there, as another rapper, Travis Scott, and then Pittsburgh Steelers' own JuJu-Smith Schuster, joined in the fight to make it an all-star rumble.

The previous record number of concurrent viewers on the channel was 388,000 and now Drake pretty much doubled that number in a single go in the middle of the night when most people were sleeping.
