Drake earned a nomination for Artist of the Year, while J. Cole will be up for New Artist of the Year. The two will then be squaring off in the Favorite Album – Rap/Hip-Hop, as Cole’s Cole World: The Sideline Story and Drizzy’s Take Care take on Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Minaj’s album is also up for Favorite Album – Pop/Rock, while she herself is vying for the Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock. Meanwhile, someone from Young Money will certainly be taking home the Favorite Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop, as Drake, Nicki and Tyga are the only three nominated.
The show is set to air November 18 on ABC.
