Last night, The Weeknd walked away from the Billboard Music Awards with an astounding 8 awards, including the prestigious ‘Top R&B Artist.’ While this is quite the accomplishment, it’s apparently not record-breaking, though in his excitement, the Canadian crooner seemed to think he held the crown.

He quickly found out that it’s actually Usher who holds that title, having taken home a whopping 14 awards at the 2004 ceremony for Confessions. Thankfully, Abel was quick to correct his mistake and apologize:

No harm, no foul. Billboard later swooped in and let him know that he does at least hold the crown for most wins for a male in the last decade!
