Who do you think is at the top?

By //Entertainment

The 2018 Billboard Music Awards are right around the corner, and this year the nominees include everyone from history-making Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar, to artists like Drake, Halsey, Migos, Rihanna and Ariana Grande. The nominations are based on “key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement,” and cover the period of April 8, 2017 through March 31, 2018. Perhaps one of the most exciting categories, the nomination for “Top Artist,” only includes one female – Taylor Swift, who is joined by Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran, with the later three coming in at a total of 15 nominations each.

It remains to see who will take home the price, as the 2018 Billboard Music Awards take place on May 20. Make sure to stay tuned for all the latest updates, and peep the full list of nominees below.
