*Canadian hip-hop sensation, Drake, leads nominations for the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards, Canada’s version of MTV’s VMAs.
He was nominated for best hip-hop video with his top charting single, “Successful,” along with two nominations for best international video for his songs “Forever” and “Over.” Drake totaled seven nods in total, one more than Vancouver artist Hedley. Justin Bieber also received four nominations.
Drake recently debuted his video for “Find Your Love,” from the anticipated album, “Thank Me Later.” Filmed in Jamaica, the country’s minister of tourism condemned the artist for portraying violent images of the island in the media.
The album will be in stores June 15. The music awards will air on Sunday, June 20 from Toronto, hosted by Miley Cyrus.
