Drake Wins Big at Much Music Video Awards

The 6 God wins big in the 6.

Drake didn’t attend the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards on Sunday (Jun. 19) in Toronto, but he did take over, winning five of the seven awards he was nominated for, including Best Video of the Year and Best Hip-Hop Video for “Hotline Bling.”

He shared the award for Best MuchFACT Video with fellow Canadians and OVO Sound signees Majid Jordan, who also picked up the award for Best Post-Production for “Every Step Every Way.”

The Weeknd, who was nominated six times, took home Best Canadian Single of the Year for “Can’t Feel My Face,” while Alessia Cara won Best New Canadian Artist.

Sunday’s show also featured performances from Cara, Fifth Harmony, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who won for Best International Duo or Group of the Year.

While accepting International Artist of the Year, Nick Jonas took a moment to honor the lives lost in Orlando. “This is for all the families and victims of the shootings recently,” said the “Bacon” singer. “We love you and you are not forgotten.”

Fresh off his Much Music wins, Drake leads the nominations for this year’s BET Awards with nine, including Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Best Collaboration, and Video of the Year.
