Is anybody listening? Apparently so.
Enfield rapper Classifield, a.k.a. Luke Boyd, landed three Juno nominations yesterday, including Single of the Year for his hit Anybody Listening.
“For the Junos, that’s pretty crazy,” Boyd said of being nominated three times. “The Junos are on such a big level.”
Classified faces stiff competition in a marquee category for the April 18 show in St. John’s, N.L. The Tragically Hip (Love Is A First), Michael Bublé (Haven’t Met You Yet), Drake (Best I Ever Had) and Billy Talent (Rusted From The Rain) are the other nominees.
Classified is also nominated for Rap Recording of the Year for the album Self Explanatory and Video of the Year for Anybody Listening. This is the third time Classified is nominated in the rap category.
“When news like this comes out, it makes you feel good,” he said.
“It shows all your hard work is not going under the radar.”
Classified wasn’t the only local musician to receive multiple Juno nomination yesterday. Halifax’s Joel Plaskett landed two nominations: Songwriter of the Year and Adult Alternative Album of the Year, both for the record Three.
The Halifax-based musical production DRUM! was nominated for the Music DVD of the Year category for DRUM! Live.
