The nominations for February’s 58th annual Grammy Awards were unveiled this morning, and our favourite numb-faced Canadian R&B singer emerged as one of the leaders of the pack.

It was announced that Toronto’s The Weeknd was nominated for seven Grammys, including two of the show’s top awards, Best Album for his Beauty Behind the Madness LP and Record Of The Year, for one of our favourite songs of the summer, “Can’t Feel My Face.”

The Weeknd tied Taylor Swift for the second most Grammy noms this year, topped only by rapper Kendrick Lamar who managed to score eleven. Yep, that’s a lot!

It was also revealed that the pride of Canadian hip hop, Drake, is up for five Grammy awards including best rap song and album, and Justin Bieber is up for Best Dance Recording for his summer hit “Where Are U Now?”
