@Drake sweeps the #MMVAS with several awards #HNNMusic

Toronto's own Drake swept the Much Music Video Awards on Sunday night, taking home five trophies during a politically charged Canadian awards show that had Nick Jonas giving a shout-out to the Orlando shooting victims and their family and Pretty Little Liarsstar Lucy Hale commenting on the recent debate around transgender bathroom rights.

What a difference the smash hit that is the music video for "Hotline Bling" makes: Drake nabbed the best video of the year, best director, best hip-hop video and most buzzworthy Canadian awards. And with Majid Jordan, Drizzy won the best MuchFACT video award for their hit single "My Love," which features the Canadian rap sensation.

As his album Views continues atop the Billboard charts, Drake came into the MMVAs Sunday leading the field along with singer-songwriter Alessia Cara with seven nominations each. Cara took home just one trophy, for best new Canadian artist.
