Eventually, Ninja would assemble an unlikely crew of "Fortnite" players, including himself, Drake, American rapper Travis Scott, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

The most streamed artist on Spotify, whose latest hit "God's Plan" has spent the last seven weeks at number one on the U.S. singles chart, made waves this week when he joined the streaming video-game platform Twitch. "I've been recording most of this album in Miami".

That was set during the grand final of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in the 2018 ELeague tournament.

Ninja, also known as Tyler Blevins, had dropped hints about playing with Drake during the week leading up to the tie-up by regularly playing songs by the Canadian rapper while streaming.

It all started with Drake following Ninja on Instagram and the two eventually got into contact with each other about getting some games in on Fortnite. Last Feb. 4, "Fortnite" has snatched the crown from "PUBG" by setting a new record of 3.4 million concurrent players, a peak that could have been higher if the crowds had not brought the game servers down.
