Drake leads ‘2013 BET Awards’ Nominations!
Drake hasn’t even dropped his 2013 album yet and he’s already the reigning King of this year’s ‘2013 BET Awards’ – picking up a whopping 12 nominations!
The ‘HYFR’ hitmaker is leading the field with five nods for Video of the Year, four for Best Collaboration and is also up for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist – where he’ll go head to head with Kendrick Lamar, Future, A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz.
As far as the ladies are concerned, Bajan beauty Rihanna is the top nomination-getter with three for Best Female R&B Artist, Video of the Year and the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award for her hit ‘Diamonds.’
During the Los Angeles press conference to unveil the nominees yesterday, RiRi’s ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and R&B legend R. Kelly were both announced as performers, while actor Chris Tucker is set to be this year’s host.
The ‘2013 BET Awards’ will be held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on June 30.
