Exclusive! MMVA Nominee SonReal shares thoughts on Canadian music
Saying that it’s been a big year for Vancouver artist SonReal is an understatement. In the past twelve months, SonReal has released his mixtape One Long Day, scored a Juno nomination for Rap Recording of the Year, passed the 1 million views mark on YouTube for his Everywhere We Go video, begun his second tour of the year (which includes 52 dates), and is only second behind Drake and Hedley for most MMVA nominations this year with a whopping FIVE nominations. So yeah, it’s been a good year.

Don’t miss SonReal presenting at the 2014 MMVAs tomorrow at 9E/6P on Much, Much.ca, CTV and CTV GO.
