Shawn Mendes is having a good morning. 

The 20-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter leads the pack of just-announced Juno Award nominees, earning a total of six nominations—including album of the year and single of the year for his ballad “In My Blood.” (Reminder: Mendes was also nominated for his first-ever Grammys last month.)

The Weeknd followed closely behind with five nods, including album of the year. Up-and-comers bülow and DJ duo Loud Luxury each earned four noms, while Brampton, Ont. native Alessia Cara scored three. Cara, Mendes and The Weeknd will all vie for artist of the year alongside crooner Michael Bublé and rapper Tory Lanez. 

Moving outside of Canadian talent, Cardi B, Post Malone, Camila Cabello, Maroon 5 and Travis Scott all received nods for international album of the year.

The 2019 Juno Awards will be hosted by Sarah McLachlan (her first time in the gig!) and air on March 17. You can read the full list of nominations here
