2024 RAP SINGLE OF THE YEAR | Belly | | The JUNO Awards

The Palestinian/Canadian-bred artist is a quadruple threat of singer/songwriter/rapper and producer, an undeniable talent that has delivered a number of hits and party jams for over a decade. By 2015, he returned to the scene, co-writing with longtime friend and fellow Canadian The Weeknd on his breakout single “Earned It,” along with a slew of other tracks off The Weeknd’s second album Beauty Behind The Madness and third Starboy. His critically acclaimed mixtape Up For Days was a welcome return for Belly, delivering his knack for party tracks, along with the hit “Might Not” featuring The Weeknd. Belly ultimately inked a deal with The Weeknd’s XO Recordings and Roc Nation. Belly even found a serendipitous placement on Beyoncé’s Lemonade. In 2016, he was honored at the SOCAN Awards as Songwriter of the Year for his work with top-tier artists.
