Cardi B tops 2019 Billboard Awards nom­i­na­tions with 21

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

Cardi B is back on top. This time the chart-top­per is lead­ing the 2019 Billboard Mu­sic Awards nom­i­nees, fol­lowed by Drake and Post Malone.

The “I Like It” rap­per clinched 21 nods when the nom­i­nees were an­nounced Thurs­day, com­pared with her eight nom­i­na­tions last year. That puts her just shy of the record for most nom­i­na­tions ever; Drake and the Chainsmok­ers each notched 22 nom­i­na­tions in 2017.

The newly minted Grammy Award win­ner was rec­og­nized in the top artist, fe­male artist, rap artist, rap fe­male artist, rap al­bum and stream­ing-song artist cat­e­gories, among oth­ers across the award show’s 56 cat­e­gories. Drake and Post Malone each earned 17 nom­i­na­tions.

Round­ing out the top artist list are Ari­ana Grande and Travis Scott, who earned nine and 12 nom­i­na­tions each, re­spec­tively.
