Drake won one of the big awards of Billboard Awards show, for Album of the Year (for Scorpion). He spent some of his brief acceptance speech namedropping Arya Stark. If you’re a Game Of Thrones fan and haven’t watched the latest episode, stop reading this now.

Drizzy noted that he had a lot of people to thank, as he won for a double album, but he also gave a shout out to a Game of Thrones character: “Shoutout to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week!” He was, of course, referring to Arya Stark’s killing of The Night King at the end of the latest episode of the series.

Funny enough, Sophie Turner, who plays Arya’s sister, Sansa Stark, was also in the audience.
