It's official, Drake is a thronee! The rapper gave 'Game of Thrones' character Arya Stark a shoutout at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards

He won a total of 12 awards at the BBMAs, including 'Top Artist'.  

While accepting the award for 'Top Billboard 200 Album', the 'God's Plan' hitmaker showed Arya some love.

"Shout-out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week, ayyy," he said to loud applause from the audience. 

Spoiler alert!

Arya shocked GoT fans during Sunday night's episode of the hit HBO show when she killed the Night King in epic fashion.

Drake was clearly as impressed as the rest of us.

Social media users reacted with excitement after Drake's Arya praise.

Some joked that the rapper's shoutout was a bad omen and Arya's character would become a victim of 'The Drake curse'. 

The musician has been labelled a "curse" to any basketball team he endorses, because they end up losing.

Will his bad luck affect fan favourite Arya? 

Considering the show is pre-recorded, probably not! But that did not stop social media users from having a field day with the idea.
