Music Canada is proud to return as the sponsor of the Album of the Year Award at the 45th Annual JUNO Awards.
“Music Canada is proud to work alongside record labels who invest in great Canadian talent by helping them create an album, develop as artists, and build a passionate fan base. This kind of support gives Canadian artists what it takes to not only break into the international market – but as we saw in 2015 – rule it,” says Graham Henderson, President of Music Canada.
“A strong music industry positions us well on the global stage, builds our brand, and draws the world to our borders through music tourism. A vibrant music sector contributes economically, socially and culturally to local communities and the country at large. There is an incredible depth and diversity for music in Canada – it’s one of our greatest exports.”
This year’s nominees for Album of the Year are:
- Drake – If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late
- Jean Leloup – A Paradis City
- Justin Bieber – Purpose
- Shawn Mendes – Handwritten
- The Weeknd – Beauty Behind the Madness
The Album of the Year Award will be presented at The 2016 JUNO Awards Broadcast on CTV at The Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary on Sunday, April 3.
