Streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and rapper Drake played Fortnite last night and perhaps unsurprisingly, they obliterated Twitch records.

This is a pretty large milestone for Fortnite as it is recognized by some of the top music artists in the world including the top athletes.

Ninja is one of the most popular Fortnite streamers out there, with him boasting over 3 million followers and his channel receiving almost 90 million views at the time of this writing.

Speaking during the stream, Drake said he had been playing Fortnite for a couple of months and had used it during breaks from recording sessions to relax.

Enter stage right: Drake, Travis Scott, and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

In Fortnite, a game set on a post-apocalyptic Earth, players have to scavenge for weapons and resources.

This however came to fruition on March 15, with Drake (playing on PS4) jumping on board Ninja's stream (played on PC) and chatting via Discord. The previous Twitch record for non-tournament rounds was Dr. Disrespect's 388,000, while Eleague Major: Boston 2018 still holds the all-time Twitch record with 1.1 million views.

More than 600,000 people tuned in on Twitch - that's the most number of people watching an individual live-stream on the platform.

Fortnite is now the most popular competitive video game of the moment, created by Epic Games. Over the past year, it seemed impossible we'd see a bigger phenomenon than PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, yet here we are and Fortnite's popularity even seems several steps higher. You can see Drake drop some of his items - and munch on some pizza - in the video below.
