On Thursday, April 4, the nominations for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards were officially announced. Leading the way is none other than Cardi B, who has a whopping 21 nominations in 18 categories. The 21 nominations is one shy of the record 22 nominations in 2017 by Drake and The Chainsmokers.

Lil Nas X disrupted the Billboard Country Music charts with his viral hit “Old Town Road.” It was kicked off of the charts for not being country enough, but now he has called on the legendary Billy Ray Cyrus to get the country stamp of approval with an official remix.
