Rap chart-topper Drake on Monday earned a record 13 nominations for the American Music Awards, topping the mark set by the late king of pop, Michael Jackson.

The Toronto rapper, whose Views has been the top-selling album released this year in the United States, was in the running for artist of the year and raked in other nominations thanks to his slew of collaborations.

But on the same day as his nomination glory, Drake postponed the final three performances of his Summer Sixteen tour under doctors' orders, his spokesperson says.
