Set to take place on Sunday 15th May at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the Billboard Music Awards are honors given out yearly by Billboard, the publication which oversees both the music industry and the popularity of music across the globe through charts.
Ye's tenth studio album, Donda, is the reason behind the multitude of nominations. The album itself is nominated in three separate categories - Top Rap Album, Top Gospel Album and Top Christian Album. When it comes to the Top Rap Album field, Donda will be up against albums such as Drake's 'Certified Lover Boy' and Rod Wave's 'SoulFly'.
