Billboard revealed its 2018 Music Awards. Among the winners are Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, and Bruno Mars in the lead with 15 BBMA nominations each, reports Billboard. Post Malone is up for 13 BBMAs in 12 different categories.
Justin Bieber and Cardi B both got eight nominations each. Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee got eight. It should come as no surprise that Cardi B is competing with 21 Savage, Camila Cabello, Khalid, and Kodak black for the Top New Artist.
According to NBC, nominees and winners are selected through analyzing data collected over a 12-month period. Billboard disclaims that, “Billboard Music Awards nominees are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement.”
Supposedly, the above “measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the reporting period of April 8, 2017, through March 31, 2018.”
Hugely competitive and meaningful to the competing artists, you can see the full list of a variety of categories and nominations for Billboard 2018 Music Awards on the Billboard website. Congrats to all the artist who made it to the list of this year’s Billboard Music Awards!
