*BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS*: Working for The Weeknd
Written by KingCnote on April 30, 2021
“Blinding Lights” lit up the charts and the airwaves, so it makes sense that The Weeknd is the leading light at this year’s Billboard Music Awards.
The Canadian superstar is a finalist in 16 categories at this year’s ceremony, including nods for Top Artist, Top Male Artist, and Top Song Sales Artist.
His 2020 album, After Hours, received multiple nods, including Top Billboard 200 Album and Top R&B Album, with the hit single “Blinding Lights” recognized in five categories.
DaBaby checked in with 11 nods, followed by the late Pop Smoke scoring 10 and Gabby Barrett with nine.
The Billboard Music Awards will air live on NBC on May 23rd.
