Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown Lead the 2015 BET Awards Nominations
The 2015 BET Award nominations are in. Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown lead this year's list of nominations, with both artists landing six and five nominations respectively.
Nicki will be competing for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Video of the Year for "Anaconda" and Best Group as a member of the Young Money collective. Her collaboration with August Alsina on the "No Love" remix landed Onika her fourth nomination, while her last two are for the Coca Cola Viewers' Choice Award for "Only" and "Throw Some Mo" with Rae Sremmurd.
Breezy is up for Best Male R&B/Pop Artist and will be competing for Video of the Year for "Loyal" and "New Flame." Brown is also nominated twice for Best Collaboration for the same two tracks, with Tyga and Lil Wayne helping out on "Loyal" and Rick Ross and Usher hopping on "New Flame."
Beyonce and Lil Wayne follow up with four nominations of their own. Queen Bey's nominations include Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and Video of the Year for "7/11." The most interesting nods on the list are probably Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks, who will be competing for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist along with Nicki Minaj. Banks went on a Twitter rant bashing the BET Awards, Nicki Minaj fans and urban media earlier today.
