Its safe to say that Drake has had an impressive career. Being at the top of the charts for a decade has made the Toronto native a house hold name. I think it’s safe to say we all knew that Drake was going to be something special in Hip Hop but did you ever think that you would mention Drake and Michael Jackson in the same breath.
Drake is up for 13 American Music Awards. The record for the most nominations used to belong to Michael Jackson when he earned 11 nominations for Thriller back in 1984. The awards he’s up for include Artist of the Year, Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Rap Artist, Favorite Rap Song, Favorite R&B song, Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album and Favorite Pop Album. He’s also in the Favorite Album category twice for VIEWS and his joint album with Future What A Time To Be Alive.
