Drake leads the list of nominees for the BET Awards.

The 36-year-old rap star has been nominated for seven gongs at the upcoming awards ceremony, including Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and Best Male RnB/Pop Artist.

The chart-topping star - who released the album 'Her Loss' with 21 Savage in November - is also nominated for the Best Group, Best Collaboration, Album of the Year and Viewer's Choice awards.

Elsewhere, GloRilla has been nominated for six gongs.

The 23-year-old star - who was named a BET Amplified Artist last year - is among the contenders for Album of the Year, Best Collaboration, Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Video of the Year and Best New Artist.

However, GloRilla will face stiff competition for the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award from the likes of Cardi B, Coi Leray, Ice Spice, Latto, Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj.

On the other hand, the Best Male Hip-Hop Artist prize will be won by one of 21 Savage, Drake, Future, J. Cole, Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar or Lil Baby.

Meanwhile, Lizzo and 21 Savage have received five nominations each,

Lizzo, 35, is among the nominees for the Best Female RnB/Pop Artist award, alongside Ari Lennox, Beyonce, Coco Jones, H.E.R. and SZA.

Beyonce, 41, has been nominated for three other gongs, including Album of the Year, BET Her and the Viewer's Choice award.

What's more, the likes of Cardi, Future, Jack Harlow and Kendrick Lamar have all received three nominations each.

The BET Awards will be held in Los Angeles on June 25. The ceremony will also celebrate 50 years of hip-hop.
