Described by organisers as music’s biggest night, stars including Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Drake – who won two awards for Hotline Bling – did not attend the ceremony.
But that didn’t stop Drake congratulating Chance, with the Same Drugs singer sharing a photo screengrab of the Canadian’s text.
He told Chance “Congrats Boi”, adding that he was in Manchester – on his Boy Meets World tour – “having a drink for u”.
