Billboard Music Awards Nominees

bbma17-1

Billboard announced the nominees for 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Drake and Chainsmokers lead the nominations. While I wasn’t a fan of “Views,” I did like the song “One Dance” and I have to admit that Drake did well on the Billboard charts this year. Other highlights includes Beyonce and Rhianna.

Here are my picks for each category I’m familiar with. The only category that I did not vote for that I am familiar with was Best Rap Album because I did not love any of the choices.

The BBMA will air on May 21.
