Drake Tops Canada’s MuchMusic Award Nominations
Drake leads the nominations for the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards -- Canada's answer to the MTV's VMAs -- with seven nods.
The Canadian rapper received a nomination for Best Hip-Hop Video with his single 'Successful,' in addition to two nominations for Best International Video with his singles 'Forever' and 'Over.' Vancouver pop-punk outfit Hedley came in a close second place with six nominations, followed by pop crooner Justin Bieber, who snagged four nominations.
Drake recently debuted a new video for 'Find Your Love,' the second official single off the upcoming album 'Thank Me Later.' The video was filmed in Jamaica and featured an appearance by dancehall artist Mavado. The video -- which has been a viral hit -- caught the attention of Jamaica's Minister of Tourism, who condemned the artists for promoting a violent image of Jamaica in the media.
Drake's highly-anticipated debut album 'Thank Me Later' will hit stores on June 15. The 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards will air on Sunday, June 20 from music station's headquarters in Toronto. The show will be co-hosted by Miley Cyrus.
