Chinese-Canadian hip-hop artist Kris Wu made his iHeartRadio MMVAs debut in Toronto, Canada, on Aug 26 where he not only performed his hits, including Like That and Deserve, but also took home one of the biggest awards of the night, Fan Fave New Artist, after weeks of voting by fans online.

"I've got a lot to say," said Wu, according to 2018 iHeartRadio MMVAs official website.

"First of all, I do it for my fans. It's an honour. This is actually my first award in North America, so I feel blessed and thankful. This one for sure goes out to all my fans. Without them, I would not be here. Shout out to my fans in Canada!"

Last October, the 28-year-old Wu released his hit, Deserve, a Travis Scott collaboration, and became the first Chinese artist to reach No 1 on the US iTunes chart.

More recently, in June, he became the first Chinese artist to hit the Billboard Hot 100 when his song Like That went to No 73.
