The highly anticipated nomination list for the upcoming BET Awards was revealed to the public on Thursday (June 8), and it comes as no surprise that Drake and GloRilla have emerged as frontrunners. Drake, who dominated the charts last summer with two consecutive hit albums (“Honestly, Nevermind” and the joint project “Her Loss” with 21 Savage), has secured an impressive seven nominations for the 2023 BET Awards, set to take place on June 25 in Los Angeles.

Among Drake’s seven nominations are categories such as Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, and Best Group alongside 21 Savage. His album “Her Loss” with 21 Savage has also been recognized in the Album of the Year category, among others. This recognition solidifies Drake’s continued influence and impact on the music industry.

Meanwhile, GloRilla, a talented rapper from Memphis, stands almost neck-to-neck with Drake, receiving an impressive six nominations. GloRilla’s nominations are well-distributed between his solo projects and collaborative efforts. Notable nominations for GloRilla include Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Best New Artist, Album of the Year for “Anyways, Life’s Great…,” and Video of the Year for his collaboration with Cardi B on “Tomorrow 2.” Last year, GloRilla received the prestigious Best Breakthrough Hip-Hop Artist of the Year award at BET’s Hip-Hop Awards, further solidifying his rising status in the industry.

Lizzo and 21 Savage follow closely behind, tying for third place with five nominations each. An intriguing development comes with the breakthrough artist Ice Spice, who finds herself in an esteemed company, receiving four nominations, just like Burna Boy, SZA, and the legendary Beyoncé. Notable artists such as Cardi B, Coco Jones, FLO, Future, Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar, Maverick City Music, Kirk Franklin, and Tems have also garnered attention with three nominations each.

As the BET Awards approach, fans eagerly anticipate the outcome of these nominations and the exceptional performances that will grace the stage. It promises to be an unforgettable night celebrating the outstanding talent within the music industry.
