The 2019 BET Awards nominations have been announced and it looks like another big year for some of our faves including Cardi B, Drake, and Beyonce.

The big event will air live from the Microsoft Theater at LA Live on June 23 and will celebrate the brightest stars across music, television, film, sports, and philanthropy. Cardi B leads the pack with seven nods including ‘Best Female Hip Hop Artist,’ two separate nods in both the ‘Best Collaboration’ and ‘Video of the Year’ categories, ‘Album of the Year’ and the ‘Coca-Cola® Viewers’ Choice Award.’

Cardi B’s Fashion Nova line hits $1 million in sales in one day ‘I made sure it was sexy but also beautiful’

Drake follows with five nominations including one for ‘Best Male Hip Hop Artist,’ ‘Video of the Year,’ ‘Best Collaboration’ and the ‘Coca-Cola® Viewers’ Choice Award.’ Beyoncé, Travis Scott and J. Cole all scored four nominations each, while Bruno Mars, 21 Savage, Childish Gambino, H.E.R. and Ella Mai each scored three nominations.

The late, Nipsey Hustle is up for Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Beyonce will face off against her own protégées, Chloe x Halle in the Best Group category, where she’s nominated with her husband, Jay-Z as The Carters.
