Drake is up for a best album Grammy

Earlier this morning, Meghan Trainor revealed the key nominees for the 59th Grammy Awards. For the second year in a row, Toronto (and the Toronto area) has some serious representation.

Drake's Views is up for Album of the Year against BeyoncĂŠ's Lemonade, Justin Bieber's Purpose, Adele's 25 and Sturgill Simpson's A Sailor's Guide to Earth. This comes just days after Views was certified quadruple platinum.

Rihanna's "Work," featuring Drake (you know the one with the music video shot at The Real Jerk) is up for Record of the Year and Bieber's "Love Yourself" is up for Song of the Year.

As Billboard notes, Queen Bey leads the pack with nine nominations, but Drake is tied for second with eight, along with Rihanna and Kanye West.

Last year, The Weeknd picked up two Grammy Awards and performed during the live ceremony at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
