People hope to see their achievements play out every year in the form of awards from the many ceremonies built to celebrate the work of some of the world’s finest musicians. The event has just announced its full list of nominees with the Billboard Music Awards coming up and, as expected, there are some familiar names at the top of the report.
It seems as if every time a show of awards announces their categories, you will regularly see a trio of names racking up wins in the main spots: Drake, Post Malone and Cardi B. Taylor Swift might have been included in the conversation in recent years, but Cardi B has taken her place as one of the world’s most popular female artists. A whole bunch of big names will be celebrating this year’s Billboard Music Awards, but once again Cardi, Drizzy and Posty found their way to the top.
The Bronx rapper has a chance to take home a whopping eighteen awards while with seventeen nominations, Post and Drake follow closely. All three are nominated with Ariana Grande and Travis Scott joining them in the Top Artist slot. As for the Best New Artist, both Juice WRLD and Lil Baby are also being honored in the running for the title with Ella Mai’s R&B sensation.
The late XXXTentacion also sees a decent number of categories as his name grace, including the R&B spots and Top Male Artist. The rap specific categories will look at everything that has been accomplished by the following artists this past year: City Girls, Nicki Minaj, Juice WRLD, Travis Scott, Drake, Cardi B, and many more. Take a look at The Hollywood Reporter’s full list of nominations and let us know who you expect to get the most awards home.
