Tweet

Winnipeg, MB – For the third time in five years, Drake has captured the Rap Recording of the Year award, Canadian hip-hop’s designate category at the yearly JUNO Awards. Drake’s album Nothing Was The Same was given the honour on Saturday but lost out to Arcade Fire on Sunday at the main ceremony in the Album of the Year (Sponsored by Music Canada) category.

Canadian hip-hop was well represented overall with Classified performing and playing the role of event co-host (along with Serena Ryder and Johnny Reid). Kardinal Offishall co-presented the Songwriter of the Year after finding out Saturday that his collaboration with JRDN, “Can’t Choose” had won R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. Also worth noting, the Jack Richardson Producer of the Year award was presented to Henry “Cirkut” Walter (co-producer Luke Gottwald: “Wrecking Ball,” BANGERZ by Miley Cyrus; “Give It 2 U” BLURRED LINES – Robin Thicke).

The JUNO Fan Choice Award went to Justin Bieber, while Artist of the Year was won by Serena Ryder, picking up her second JUNO of the night. Tegan and Sara won both Group of the Year and Single of the Year with their song, “Closer.” International Album of the Year went to Bruno Mars for Unorthodox Jukebok.

The 2015 JUNO Awards will be heading back to Southern Ontario as Hamilton will host the 44th Annual JUNO Awards broadcasted from FirstOntario Centre on Sunday, March 15, 2015.
