Drake Just Shattered Michael Jackson's Record

October 10, 2016
It's the time of year when you hear lots of Michael Jackson's Thriller, but the Thriller album has officially been dethroned.

Drake earned a record-breaking thirteen American Music Award nominations with his latest album, Views.

He shattered Michael's Jackson's record of eleven nominations in a single year from 1984 when Thriller was released.

He's also on the list for Artist of the Year with Adele, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Twenty One Pilots, Carrie Underwood, and The Weeknd. The 10 nominees will be cut in half by November 14th based on fan votes. Voting on Artist of the Year will close November 17th.

The awards show will air live on ABC November 20th from L.A.
