Story highlights

Viewership peaked at 600,000 people

Drake recently started playing

CNN  — 

Drake is new to the game.

Not the rap game, mind you, but rather the video game “Fortnite.”

The “Hotline Bling” rapper helped break a record late Wednesday when more than 600,000 people tuned in to watch him play the popular game on Twitch, a streaming service that allows people to watch others play video games.

The rapper joined pro-gamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins to play the survival game, smashing the previous record of 388,000 viewers set by gamer Dr DisRespect, according to CNET.

Drake tipped fans off to his participation via his Twitter account.

Cue people freaking out.

The pair were eventually joined by NFL player JuJu Smith-Schuster and rapper Travis Scott.

Those who tuned in learned that Drake has only been playing the game for about a month or two and that he and his crew sometimes use it to relax during long hours in the studio.
