Dick Clark Productions and NBC announced the nominees in 56 categories across all genres of music live this past Thursday.
This year Cardi B changes the game as she leads the pack with 21 nominations. That includes double nominations in the categories of Top Selling Song, Top Collaboration and Top Hot 100 Song.
Following behind Cardi B for the most nominations is Drake and Post Malone, each having 17 nominations, and Travis Scott having 12.
The 2019 Billboard Music Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Wednesday, May 1, at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific.
The Show will be hosted by Kelly Clarkson.
The 2019 Billboard Music Award is all about celebrating and honoring the the year’s most successful artist, of which Cardi B is most definitely one.
According the the Grapevine, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” two years ago, the Grammy Award winner has remained a presence on the Billboard charts, with three No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 list, and her album—Invasion of Privacy—debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums list. She is only the fifth female rap artist to have a No. 1 album. According to Billboard, her entire catalog has had a record 5.8 billion on demand streams in the United States alone.
The excitement is through the roof.
Here’s to Cardi B’s success and hopes to her having a killer performance.
We’ll all be watching.
