It’s a good day to be Justin Bieber. The superstar is up for five nominations in Canada’s 2016 Juno Awards and three in U.S.’ Kids’ Choice Awards.
Bieber is nominated in the Best Pop Album category for his acclaimed album Purpose. Other contenders are Hedley’s Hello, Shawn Mendes with Handwritten, Scott Helman’s Augusta, and Walk Off the Earth’s Sing it All the Way.
Elsewhere, the Biebs is in the running for Single Of The Year with “What Do You Mean?” Other artists nominated in the field are Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” The Weeknd with “Can’t Feel My Face,” Ria Mae with “Clothes Off,” and Alessia Cara’s huge hit “Here.”
Justin also gets a nod in the Best Album category for Purpose. Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, Shawn Mendes’ Handwritten, The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness, and Jean Leloup’s A Paradis City will also do battle for the prestigious award.
The “Love Yourself” singer is also nominated for the Fan Choice Award. Bieber will contend with Alessia Cara, Carly Rae Jepsen, Shawn Hook, Drake, Coeur de Pirate, Dean Brody, Shawn Mendes, Walk Off The Earth, and The Weeknd.
It’s not surprising Bieber dominates the 2016 Juno Awards with Drake and The Weeknd. All three artists released music which captured the public’s imagination last year. In particular, Bieber’s comeback during 2015 saw him break records around the world as he dropped hit after hit, and publicly atoned for teen-like antics, which — let’s face it — were overplayed in the press for his click bait value.
