TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) - Michael Buble felt the "love" at the Juno Awards during the weekend, picking up four honors at Canada's top music ceremony.

The Canadian crooner earned trophies for pop album and album for "Crazy Love," and single of the year for "Haven't Met You Yet." He also grabbed the fan choice award, having gone into the St. John's, Newfoundland, event with six nominations.

Toronto rapper Drake was named best new artist, and also won a Juno in the rap category for "So Far Gone," a tune from his upcoming debut album, "Thank Me Later."

Somali-born poet, rapper and musician K'Naan also won a pair: artist of the year, and best songwriter for his hit single "Wavin' Flag."

Toronto indie rockers were named group of the year.

In all, 32 of 39 Juno trophies were given out during a non-televised ceremony Saturday, opening the way for a performance-heavy gala telecast Sunday on the CTV network.
