Before we end, we need to give a special shout out to Drake. The 6ix God is nominated for not one or two AMAs, but THIRTEEN. If you’re thinking that that sounds like a lot, it’s because it is! 13 is the most nominations any artist has ever received in a single year in AMAs history. The last high mark was taken by Michael Jackson with 11 in 1984. Congratulations, Drake! So well deserved.
