2 d Newsdesk R&B superstar The Weeknd is aiming to strike gold at the 2021 Juno Awards after landing six nominations.
The singer will be competing for Artist of the Year, Single of the Year, and Album of the Year honours, as well as Songwriter of the Year, Contemporary R&B Recording of the Year, and the Juno Fan Choice trophy.
Justin Bieber, Jessie Reyez, and JP Saxe each score five mentions, while Celine Dion extends her total Juno Awards nominations to 75 after earning recognition in three more categories, including Album of the Year for Courage.
Dion and The Weeknd will face off for the album prize with Bieber's Changes, Ali Gatie's YOU, and Thanks for the Dance from Leonard Cohen, while Dion, Gatie, Bieber, and Reyez will challenge The Weeknd for Artist of the Year.
The 2021 Juno Awards, organised by officials at the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, will be held virtually on 16 May .
