The Weeknd lead nominations at The JUNO Awards 2016

OHMYGOSSIP — The Weeknd, Justin Bieber and Drake lead the nominations at The 45th annual JUNO Awards. The ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ hitmaker received six nods, with Justin Bieber and Drake following closely behind with a potential five accolades in contention.

The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – will battle it out with the ‘What Do You Mean?’ singer and ‘Hotline Bling’ rapper for the Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Single of the Year prizes.

The Weeknd is also up for Songwriter of the Year, the Juno Fan Choice trophy and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year for ‘Beauty Behind the Madness’.

Other notable nominees – who are chosen by The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences with preference given to Canadian artists – include Shawn Mendes, who is up for Artist of the Year, the Juno Fan Choice Award and Album of the Year for ‘Handwritten’, and Adele, who is the running for a double for Video of the Year for ‘Hello’ and International Album of the Year for ’25’.

Speaking about this year’s nominations, CEO of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences Allan Reid said: “It’s been an absolutely phenomenal year for Canadian artists, here at home and around the globe. Just back in December, seven of the top 10 artists on the Billboard Hot 100 charts were Canadian. I’ve been in the industry longer than 25 years and I’ve got to say not since the 90s have we seen our artists dominate the charts like this. It’s absolutely incredible.”
