Beyoncé set a new personal best this year with 11 nominations for the 2016 MTV Video Awards. Her visual album LEMONADE and video for “Formation” led the pack of nominations announced Tuesday (July 26), seemingly getting the nod in every category where she’d be eligible with the exception of Best Visual Effects.
Hip Hop and R&B artists had a big year across the board.
Drake got a combined six nominations for his meme-baiting “Hotline Bling” video and his collaboration with Rihanna for “Work.” Kanye West’s controversial “Famous” visuals scored two nominations, including for Video Of The Year.
Nominated for Best Hip Hop Video: Drake for “Hotline Bling,” Desiigner for “Panda,” Bryson Tiller for “Don’t,” Chance The Rapper for “Angels,” and 2 Chainz for “Watch Out.”
Desiigner and Bryson Tiller were also nominated in the Best New Artist category.
