Drake achieved yet another impressive career milestone, and this one may further solidify his place as the absolutely legendary musician he continues to evolve into.

Most recently, the list of contenders for this year's American Music Awards were announced, putting Drake in the lead with a record-breaking amount of nominations.

The rapper is impressively nominated with 13 different awards, breaking the previous record held by Michael Jackson. In 1984, the iconic singer was nominated for 11 different awards, holding that record for just over three decades.

Of the different categories, Drizzy is up for Artist of the Year, along with Rihanna, The Weeknd and Beyoncé.

RiRi snagged seven nominations herself, including a couple for her collaboration with Drake with their track "Work" being nominated for both Collaboration of the Year and Video of the year.

Check out the full list of nominations here.
