Beyonce Leads 2017 BET Award Nominations

Beyonce’s reign as queen will continue at the 2017 BET Awards.

The mind behind “Lemonade” is nominated for a staggering seven awards at this year’s event, BET told The Associated Press. Beyonce follows up an impressive run through last year’s show, where she took home a best-of-the-night five BET Awards.

Trailing closing behind is Bruno Mars, 31, who will challenge in five categories at the Microsoft Theater on June 25.

Beyonce gets a nod for Video of the Year for “Sorry”, but she has stiff competition in her sister Solange’s “Cranes In the Sky”, Mars’ “24K Magic”, Migos’s “Bad and Boujee”, and Big Sean’s “Bounce Back.”
