Drake is making music history. The 34-year-old Toronto native, born Aubrey Drake Graham, is poised to receive the Artist of the Decade award at the 2021 Billboards Music Awards (BBMA) on May 23.

He is more than qualified to receive such an accolade. Drake holds the distinction of being the most awarded artist in Billboard history with 27 trophies under his belt. He has scored eight No 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and has won critical acclaim with nine No 1 albums to boot.

Not surprisingly, Drake has made some money out of all of these hits. In 2019, Forbes estimated his net worth at US$150 million, while more recent estimates go up to US$180 million. So what luxury items has he splurged on?

Drake clearly values a good night’s sleep, and to prove it, he shelled out US$400,000 on a Hästens Grand Vividus bed. Ferris Rafauli, the designer and artist behind Drake’s 50,000-square-foot mansion, collaborated with premium Swedish bedmaker Hästens to produce the mattress.

The bed is layered with more horsetail hair, wool, cotton, flax and Swedish pine than any of its predecessors, and is said to last 50-100 years.

He lives in a US$150 million mansion

Drake’s Toronto mansion is a visual feast, and in 2020, GQ estimated that the property was worth US$150 million. He spared no expense on the interiors, lining them with limestone, bronze and exotic woods. Since he built it in his hometown, Drake told Architectural Digest he wanted the structure to stand for 100 years. The mansion features amenities such as an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court.
