Justin stars in the music video for the DJ Khaled and Drake track ‘Popstar’ which is nominated for Video of the Year and Best Direction, while his track ‘Peaches’ – which features Daniel Caesar and Giveon – is up for Best Collaboration, Best Pop, and Best Editing.

His final nomination comes in the Best Cinematography category, where ‘Holy’ – his track with Chance The Rapper – is nominated.

Megan Thee Stallion is the next most-nominated with six nods, many of which come from her and Cardi B’s hit track ‘WAP’, which is up for Video of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Collaboration, and Best Hip-Hop.
