Top Male Artist: Justin Bieber, Drake, Future, Shawn Mendes, The Weeknd
Who We Think Will Win: The Weeknd‘s 18 songs from Starboy album hit the Billboard Top 100, being the second artist in history to place that many songs on the Hot 100 in a single week! Justin Bieber has several hits and collabs, but we haven’t seen much of him. While Drake had a huge year dropping an album and a tour, and another album. This will be a close call, but I think The Weeknd will be taking this award home because he’s a “mothaf**kin Starboy“!
Top Female Artist: Adele, Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Sia
Who We Think Will Win: I want to say this award is going to Adele because she is most likely to win Top Artist, but if the fans are voting, Beyoncé might just win this award. But the biggest question arises, will she attend? Ariana Grande has a huge fan base and slayed with “Side to Side“, so she is another ringer for this award. I think Adele might be saying hello to another award, though.
Top Duo/Group: The Chainsmokers, Coldplay, Florida Georgia Line, Guns N’ Roses, Twenty One Pilots
Who We Think Will Win: I feel this is an easy win for Twenty One Pilots, since they did win a Grammy and have a huge hit on their hands with “Heathens”. I just hope win they win this award so they take off their pants again!
