The Weeknd and Drake score Grammy nominations

After consistently crushing it on the Billboard Hot 100 charts this year, it's no surprise that Toronto's Drake and The Weeknd have each earned multiple Grammy nominations.

The Weeknd has racked up seven nominations - the second highest behind Kendrick Lamar - including in massive categories such as Record of the Year ("Beauty Behind the Madness") and Song of the Year ("I Can't Feel My Face").

Drake picked up five nominations in categories such as Best Rap Album ("If You're Reading This It's Too Late") and Best Rap Performance ("Back to Back").

You can cheer on both hometown artists on February 15 when the 58th Annual Grammy Awards are broadcast live from the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
