Drake Splits MuchMusic Video Award with Justin Bieber
Drake shared the spotlight with fellow Canuck Justin Bieber at the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, Canada on Sunday (June 19), when the two tied for International Video of the Year by a Canadian.
Drake, who was the previous year’s host, took the stage to receive the trophy for his ‘Find Your Love‘ video, along with Bieber, who split the award with his Usher-assisted video for ‘Somebody to Love (Remix).’ While on stage, the Biebs jokingly asked the host, his girlfriend Selena Gomez, out on a date.
“Even though this is for international, I just want to say, we both do it for Toronto, so you know what it is,” Drake said, acknowledging his hometown — Bieber was born in nearby London, Ontario.
Lady Gaga took home the biggest awards of the night, winning International Video of the Year and UR FAVE International Video, while Bieber also scored UR FAVE Artist, and Nova Scotia rapper Classified received Hip-Hop Video of the year for ‘That Ain’t Classy.’
Drake’s highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘Take Care,’ is in stores October 24.
