The Weeknd Wins Juno Award For “Artist of the Year”; Plus Performance

The Weeknd picked up some top honors at the 2015 Juno Awards, Canada's music awards.

The singer-songwriter won the coveted “Artist of the Year” prize along with “R&B/Soul Recording of the Year” for his single, “Often.”

During his acceptance speech, the 25-year-old thanked his XO crew and the award show.

"Um, I'd like to thank the Junos of course,'' he said. "I want to thank Canada man, thank you guys. I wouldn't be here without you. Thank you.''

The dapper dressed crooner also took the stage during the annual ceremony (Mar. 15) and performed his hit single “Earned It,” which is taken from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. The single is also his biggest charting record to date; it’s currently No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. He was joined on stage by pianist Stephan Moccio, who co-wrote the record.
