Melanie Fiona and Drake will return to their native home, Canada, as nominees for 2010 Juno Awards. Nominated for Grammy Awards earlier this year, both acts received Juno nods alongside Michael Buble and Justin Beiber Wednesday. Riding high on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart-topping single “It Kills Me,” Melanie Fiona joins Jully Black (“The Black Book”), Jarvis Church (“The Long Way Home”), jacksoul (“Lonesome Highway”) and Danny Fernandes (“Intro”), as a nominee for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year (“The Bridge”). Drake, receiving four nominations, is up for Single of the Year (“Best I Ever Had”), New Artist of the Year, and Recording of the Year. Nominated twice in the latter category, Drake receives nods for “Best I Ever Had” and “Still Fly,” a collaboration with Big Page and U.G.O. Crew. In related news, Drake has signed on to perform at the 2010 Junos, which take place April 18 at Mile One Centre in St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador. The 2010 Juno Awards will air that evening on CTV.
