Celeb Secrets Predicts the Winners for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards – Artist Categories

Live Nation

Top R&B Artist: Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Frank Ocean, Rihanna, The Weeknd

Who We Think Will Win:  The Weeknd has had a great year so far; not only in his personal life, but musically as well. I have no doubt he will take this award home, especially after the success of “Starboy“!

Top Rap Artist: J. Cole, Desiigner, Drake, Future, Rae Sremmurd

Who We Think Will Win: Desiigner is still fairly new to the game, and while Future did just play at Coachella, we still think Drake will be taking this award home. He not only joined Future on stage at Coachella, toured with him, made an album with him, and still managed to come out with two new albums of his own! With his latest being one of the best albums he put out, he will definitely be seeing views of this award in his hands.
