Drake

Drake tops Soul Train Awards with 12 nominations

Toronto's favourite son Drake has had quite the remarkable year. He's released a short film, broke Michael Jackson's 32-year record for most American Music Award nominations, and now he leads the pack of nominations for the 2016 Soul Train Awards.

Drake has been nominated for a whopping 12 awards for his album Views - that's four more than Beyonce. He's up for awards like Album/Mixtape of the Year, Video of the Year and Song of the Year.

The 2016 Soul Train Awards will tape on November 6 and air on November 27. Drizzy has done exceedingly well with nominations over the last while, but his trophy case is yet to burst, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of hardware he might take home.
