SOCAN members Shawn Mendes, The Weeknd, and Drake won a single award apiece at 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards, held in Rotterdam on Nov. 6, 2016.

Shawn Mendes won the Best Male Award, and used the occasion to say, "My mom's birthday is today, so happy birthday, Mom. I love you."

The Weeknd (featuring Daft Punk) won the best Video Award for “Starboy,” and his stunning live performance of the winning song galvanized the audience.

Drake, who didn’t attend the awards, won the Best Hip Hop Award, while his fellow non-attendee Justin Bieber won for Best Song (“Sorry”), Best Canadian Act, and Biggest Fans (voted by the public).

SOCAN congratulates our winning members on these achievements!
