Turns out Drake is just as big a Game of Thrones nerd as the rest of us. 

The 32-year-old rapper hilariously gave props to our GoT queen, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), while accepting his award for Top Billboard 200 Album for Scorpion at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday.  

"Thank you, this is amazing. I guess I gotta thank everybody who contributed to this project. It was a really lengthy album, so it's a lot of people to mention, but thank you to everybody who gave me their time, their energy, stayed away from their family and friends while we were trying to complete this," he said. "I always had a dream of doing a double album, and I finally did it, so now I'll never do it again."

"And, yeah, thank you to the Billboards, and I need a glass of champagne," Drake continued. "And, hey, shout out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week!"

While Arya's epic takedown of the Night King on Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones had everyone talking, this isn't the first time Drake has expressed his love for the HBO series. His 2015 song, "You & the 6" calls out the show by name. 

"I pull the knife out my back and cut they throat with it, momma/ I'm Game of Thrones with it, momma/ I'm Home Alone with it, momma/ I really hate using this tone with you, momma/ I really hate getting aggressive on this phone with you, momma," he raps.
