Rapper Drake finally broke his losing streak Saturday night (March 31) by winning a Juno Award for Rap Recording of the Year for his platinum-selling album ‘Take Care.’ The trophy was presented at a Pre-Gala Dinner & Awards ceremony before the live event, which takes place on April 1.

The Juno Awards are Canada’s equivalent to the Grammy Awards here in the United States. So, yes, this is a big deal. Drizzy wasn’t there to accept the honor because he was on the European leg of his Club Paradise Tour.

The win marks the first time the ‘Motto’ rapper has won a Juno Award since winning Artist of the Year and Rap Recording of the Year in 2010 for his debut LP ‘So Far Gone.’ Drake was predicted to win a slew of Juno trophies last year, but was left empty-handed.

There’s a chance he could win some more awards at Sunday’s televised event. The Canadian rap superstar is up for Artist of the Year, Juno Fan Choice and Album of the Year.

Here’s wishing Drake good luck at the Juno Awards.
