Polygon reports that the stream soon had over 600,000 viewers. Ninja, one of the most popular gamers on Twitch, usually draws an audience of around 90,000 to his streams. The previous streaming record for non-tournament play was a reported 388,000 concurrent viewers.





Drake chatted to Ninja while playing the game, a player versus player battle in a world where a global storm has caused 98% of the world's population to disappear. He gave his opinion on eating pineapple with pizza (he's a fan) and revealed that he likes to play the game with his friends in between recording sessions at his studio.

Watch some highlights from the night below.
