"Shout-out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week, ayy," the rapper said while accepting the award for top Billboard 200 album Wednesday night.

Like any Game of Thrones fan, Drake is pumped about what went down on last Sunday's epic episode and used his time at the podium during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards to literally give a shout-out to the character Arya Stark.

While accepting the award for top Billboard 200 album Wednesday night, Drake concluded with a giant smirk and the line, "Shout-out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week, ayy!" For those who haven't watched the latest GoT episode yet, we won't spoil it here...but we can confirm that Arya (played by Maisie Williams) did, indeed, put in that work during the Battle of Winterfell.

Sophie Turner, who plays Arya's big sis Sansa Stark on Thrones, was in attendance at the Billboard Music Awards, as a presenter and with her beau Joe Jonas. 

In non-fantasy news, Drake also confirmed onstage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena that Scorpion, his album from last year that took home the Top Billboard 200 Album trophy, fulfilled his longtime desire to make a double album. He added that he won't be making another one because of it, either.

The Billboard Music Awards is produced by Dick Clark Productions — a division of Valence Media, the parent company of the Billboard-Hollywood Reporter Media Group.
