2011 Juno Award Nominations announced – Drake leads nomination count with six [News/PSA]

Tweet

Toronto, ON – It’s almost that time of year again. The nominations for the Juno Awards were just released and Drake is leading the charge with the most nominations – a total of 6 including Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Rap Recording, Single of the Year (Find Your Love), Juno Fan Choice Award and Songwriter of the Year. It should be a good night for Canadian hip-hop as he’s bound to pick up at least a few of those awards. We’ll be seeing a lot of Drake come March 27th when the ceremony takes place at the Air Canada Centre, since he will also be hosting the show. In terms of nominations, Stratford, Ontario-born pop star Justin Bieber is right behind Drake with four nominations as well as country-soul artist Johnny Reid.

Other Canadian hip-hop artists to receive nominations include Classified and K’naan in the Single of the Year category, and Eternia & MoSS, Shad, Ghettosocks and D-Sisive in the Rap Recording of the Year. Silver (aka Solitair) picked up a nomination in the R&B/Soul Recording of the Year category with his song “Come True” featuring Kardinal Offishall — and Kardi is also featured on another song in that category, “So Much” by Raghav. Joey Stylez received a nomination for Aboriginal Album of the Year. Click the jump for the full nomination list.
