#BlackTwitterHoliday: BET AWARDS 2016 + Music Predictions

#BlackTwitterHoliday: BET AWARDS 2016 + Music Predictions

It’s “Black Twitter”‘s favorite day of the year! The BET Awards. It’s the best time of the summer where every black family sits around the TV and talk through the whole show and where millennials will live tweet and make memes throughout the  entire award ceremony.

Hosted by the famous Black-ish duo Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross and tributes to Muhammad Ali and Prince, we’re sure the family reunion feeling will be in the atmosphere.

Tonight will be the BET Awards 2016 sponsored by many different companies like Sprite, Fresh Empire, Cocoa Cola and presented by all-day breakfast at McDonald’s. We’ve seen all of the cool commercials for the show and kept up with all the music and it’s finally time to see who will win for the year!

Here are some the nominees and my predictions for tonight’s show:

BEST FEMALE R&B/POP ARTIST

  • ADELE
     ADELE
  • K. MICHELLE

    K. MICHELLE

  • ANDRA DAY

    ANDRA DAY

  • BEYONCÉ

  • RIHANNA

    RIHANNA

My prediction is that Beyonce’ will take away the win for Lemonade because the Bey Hive went crazy for yet another exclusive dropped album from Beyonce but my pick is for Rihanna. ANTI was definitely a better listen than Lemonade.

BEST MALE R&B/POP ARTIST

  • BRYSON TILLER

  • CHRIS BROWN

  • JEREMIH

  • THE WEEKND

  • TYRESE

Since The Weeknd won every award category at the Billboard Music Awards 2016, my prediction is that he will take away the award tonight. This is a tough category for me being #TeamBreezy and loving Jeremih because he’s so under rated, my pick of who I think should win is Jeremih. He’s worked so hard this year and is honestly a GREAT artist. Bryson Tiller should win best new artist.

COCA-COLA VIEWERS’ CHOICE

  • Where Ya At x Drake x Future
  • Back To Sleep x Chris Brown
  • Formation x Beyonce’
  • Hotling Bling x Drake
  • Work x Rihanna x Drake
  • Don’t x Bryson Tiller

Since it’s a viewer’s choice, this category is honestly so up in the air.  Between #TheNavy, #BeyHive, #FutureHive, #TeamBreezy, the Drake lovers, and the newly team behind Tiller, this is definitely a tough competition. Being that Drake is up for three different singles, I’m guessing he has to win one, and my guess is going to be Hotling Bling but my vote lies with Breezy.

BEST GROUP

  • 2 CHAINZ AND LIL WAYNE

    2 CHAINZ AND LIL WAYNE

  • DRAKE AND FUTURE

    DRAKE AND FUTURE

  • PUFF DADDY AND THE FAMILY

    PUFF DADDY AND THE FAMILY

  • RAE SREMMURD

    RAE SREMMURD

  • THE INTERNET

            THE INTERNET

I’m almost sure that Drake and Future will win this category, getting my vote as well. They’ve collaborated on everything this year and giving us the album of turn up “What A Time To Be Alive” though Rae Sremmurd gave them a run for their money.

BEST COLLABORATION

  • BIG SEAN FEATURING CHRIS BROWN AND TY DOLLA $IGN – 'PLAY NO GAMES'

    BIG SEAN FEATURING CHRIS BROWN AND TY DOLLA $IGN – ‘PLAY NO GAMES’

  • BIG SEAN FEATURING KANYE WEST AND JOHN LEGEND – 'ONE MAN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD'

    BIG SEAN FEATURING KANYE WEST AND JOHN LEGEND – ‘ONE MAN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD’

  • FUTURE FEATURING DRAKE – 'WHERE YA AT?'

    FUTURE FEATURING DRAKE – ‘WHERE YA AT?’

  • NICKI MINAJ FEATURING BEYONCÉ – 'FEELING MYSELF'

    NICKI MINAJ FEATURING BEYONCÉ – ‘FEELING MYSELF’

  • RIHANNA FEATURING DRAKE – 'WORK'

    RIHANNA FEATURING DRAKE – ‘WORK’

    This is one of the toughest categories for me! Most of the singles in this category could be heard on all radio stations and most definitely were my favorite song at one point! My #BlackGirlMagic wants to think that ‘Feeling Myself’ will take the win, but I think that ‘Play No Games’ was a huge record and the bomb video that dropped right after the BET Awards 2015, has still been the best video I’ve seen so far. (Though Feeling Myself had me wanting to do crazy fun girlie things with my best friend) I’m going to go with Feelin’ Myself for the win & my vote also goes to Nicki & Bey.

    BEST MALE HIP HOP ARTIST

    • DRAKE

      DRAKE

      FUTURE

      FUTURE

    • FETTY WAP

    • J. COLE
    • J. COLE
    • KANYE WEST

      KANYE WEST

    • KENDRICK LAMAR

      KENDRICK LAMAR

I feel like this is always the most anticipated  award of the night.  My prediction is that Kanye West is going to win with all the hype he’s caused this year especially with the Life of Pablo. My pick would be either Drake or J.Cole.

BEST FEMALE HIP HOP ARTIST

  • DEJ LOAF

    DEJ LOAF

  • LIL' KIM

    LIL’ KIM

  • MISSY ELLIOTT

    MISSY ELLIOTT

  • NICKI MINAJ

    NICKI MINAJ

    Nicki for the win and she has my vote.

     

    VIDEO OF THE YEAR

            BEYONCÉ – 'FORMATION'

            BEYONCÉ – ‘FORMATION’

    • BRYSON TILLER – 'DON'T'

      BRYSON TILLER – ‘DON’T’

    • DRAKE – 'HOTLINE BLING'

      DRAKE – ‘HOTLINE BLING’

    • KENDRICK LAMAR – 'ALRIGHT'

      KENDRICK LAMAR – ‘ALRIGHT’

    • RIHANNA FEATURING DRAKE – 'WORK'

      RIHANNA FEATURING DRAKE – ‘WORK’

      Formation caused a whole new wave of girl power, slay, self-love, awareness, influence, and everything in between.  Hotline Bling and Work both definitely got the people talking and has generated so many memes for the internet. Alright was another video that was moving!  My vote is that Formation is going to win but I think Work gets my vote simply because both videos were so fun and cute.

      BEST NEW ARTIST

      • ALESSIA CARA

        ALESSIA CARA

      • ANDRA DAY

        ANDRA DAY

      • TORY LANEZ

      Bryson Tiller has definitely put in so much work this year. He literally popped up, showed out, and his album went huge on Apple Music without even being signed! I think he’s taking home the award and he has my vote.
