Cardi B & Drake Top 2018 American Music Award Nominations

And AMA goes to…

It’s been a breakout year for Cardi B and the nominations reflect that. Drake seems to always be one of the top nominees year after year and that doesn’t change this year either. Both artists are very likely to add some more awards to their trophy mantles as they each received eight nominations for the 2018 American Music Awards.

Post Malone will also be well represented at the event with six nominations for himself.

Other artist nominations include Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Migos, XXXTentacion, Young Thug, SZA, Lil Uzi Vert and Rihanna.

Fan votes will decide the winners which is now open at VoteAMAs.com. Most of the categories are available to vote for, however, you’ll have to revisit the site September 24 to vote for New Artist of the Year, Favorite Social Artist and Collaboration of the Year.

You can also vote on Twitter (just make sure your account is public).
