May 27, 2021 The BET Awards have announced the nominees for this years ceremony and Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B and Drake look like early winners! The BET Awards, the premier ceremony honoring Black music, announced the 2021 nominations hours before the Memorial weekend and days before the start of Black Music Month. This year, many of the top nominees are carryovers from 2019 and 2020. Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Cardi B and Drake are propped up to possibly rack up all the top awards. Megan, Hip-Hops official Hot Girl is nominated seven times. There is only one other artist who has earned as many nods and that is the North Carolinian chart-topper DaBaby, who is responsible for the Billion Dollar Baby movement. With five nominations, Cardi B and Drake are also favored to cop some trophies. They are favored but they are no shoe-ins. Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars as Silk Sonic, Chloe X Halle, and Chris Brown earned four nominations and could possibly slip in and snag a few wins. Connie Orlando, EVP Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy, said in a statement: We are back and excited to bring cultures biggest night, the 2021 BET Awards, safely back to Los Angeles to celebrate this years incredible roster of nominees. We broke ground as one of the first official award shows to move forward during the global pandemic, she continued.
