We are about a week away from the Juno Awards which will be celebrated at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB, Canada, on Sunday March 30th. So far, I have highlighted the nominees for Pop Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, and Single of the Year.
We are now down to the last two categories I will be highlighting: Album of the Year and Artist of the Year. The only way to really appreciate these works is by listening to each album. So, please check out the following Spotify links in order to do so. I’ll let you know who my pick is at the end of this post.
And the nominee for Album of the Year are…
- Reflektor by Arcade Fire
- Loved Me Back To Life by Céline Dion
- Nothing Was the Same by Drake
- To Be Loved by Michael Bublé
- Harmony by Serena Ryder
Album of the Year. That is a pretty strong phrase. All of these artists put their heart and soul into these albums. To them, their album is the Album of the Year. So I respect their efforts even though I may not always be their biggest fan. So, who do I think deserves this honor? Well, it’s hard to say. I really love Serena Ryder’s Harmony, and I recommend it to all of my friends, but my gut tells me it’s going to be between Reflektor by Arcade Fire and Drake’s Nothing Was The Same. And between these two, Nothing Was The Same is such a hit all over the world.
I predict Drake will walk away with this one. Next week we’ll highlight Artist of the Year.
Till next time,
