The Internet Watches As Drake Breaks Records Playing With Ninja In Fortniteā€

The music star logged on for his debut playing survival game Fortnite against popular gamer Ninja on streaming platform Twitch, which allows people to watch others playing games live. While plenty of people subscribe to channels on Twitch in order to support their favorite personalities, some channels do offer perks.

The number of viewers for the stream has jumped to over 600,000 concurrent viewers, which blows away the previous high of 400,000 for an individual stream.

By the end of the night, Ninja had gained more than 90,000 subscribers for at least $250,000 a month in revenue. That game has also become extremely popular, very quickly.

He played with "Ninja" and then they were joined by rapper Travis Scott and Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

In what might be one of the shrewdest business decisions we've ever seen Fortnite's developers Epic Games announced past year that it would be launching a free-to-play version of Fortnite called Battle Royale.

Ninja, also known as Tyler Blevins, had dropped hints about playing with Drake during the week leading up to the tie-up by regularly playing songs by the Canadian rapper while streaming. The rapper, being an avid Instagram user, found Instagram clips of Ninja, and followed his account.

Twitter exploded as Drake and Ninja were trending in the States and worldwide. Check out the stream below (Drake joins around the 3-hour mark).

Better yet, Drake made it clear he wasn't a complete stranger to the game, discussing the differences between Fortnite and the similarly-themed Player Unknown's Battlegrounds.
