On Wednesday (April 7), the nominees for the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards were announced and The Weeknd is leading the pack with a whopping eight nominations. Megan The Stallion and Roddy Ricch follow the Canadian star with seven nods each.
The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” is nominated for Song of the Year, just months after he was snubbed by the 63rd Grammy Awards. The track will go up against DaBaby and Ricch’s collaboration for “Rockstar,” Post Malone’s “Circles” and Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now.”
Megan Thee Stallion is nominated for Female Artist of the Year and Hip Hop Artist of the Year.
“Savage (Remix),” her No. 1 Beyoncé-assisted single, is nominated for Hip Hop Song of the Year, while “WAP,” her controversial No. 1 single with Cardi B, has been nominated for Best Music Video, Favorite Music Video Choreography and TikTok Bop of the Year.
The 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards are set to air live from Los Angeles on May 27 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. “We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards,” said Tom Poleman, chief programming officer for iHeartMedia. “We are looking forward to celebrating these top artists and their accomplishments, especially after a year that brought unprecedented challenges to the music industry and live events.”
