Cardi B Dominates 2019 Billboard Music Awards With 21 Nominations In 18 Categories

Cardi B has a pretty high chance of winning at least one award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards with 21 nominations in 18 categories. In fact, according to Billboard, the Bronx-bred raptress will be competing against herself in numerous categories, including Top Selling Song and Top Hot 100 Song. A great way to follow up from making history earlier this year as the first solo female artist to win the Best Rap Album award at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Cardi is nominated for Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album amongst other categories for three multi-nominated songs, “I Like It,” “Girls Like You” and “Taki Taki.”

Drake and Post Malone tied for second-most nominations with 17, #TravisScott came third with 12, the late #XXXTentacion earned 10, and #ArianaGrande has secured nine nods.
