Drake added two more awards to his resume. The 2010 Juno Awards aired Sunday night from Newfoundland and the Toronto rapper won New Artist of the Year and Rap Recording of the Year for So Far Gone.


Upon receiving New Artist of the Year, Drake acknowledged fellow nominee Justin Bieber. Besides the teen pop sensation, Drake also beat other newcomers such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Danny Fernandes and Shiloh.


Drake, who performed more than once last night, said after winning Rap Recording of the Year, “Oh man, this is too much. It's too much for one night.” However, Drake did not take home the most trophies.


Singer Michael Buble snagged four awards, including Single of the Year for Haven’t Met You Yet, Album of the Year and the Juno Fan Choice Award. K’Naan tied Drake with two awards: Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year for Wavin’ Flag. The Haiti anthem was performed on stage last night as well as by the artists who collaborated to re-record K’Naan’s song.
