    beyonce-jay-drake-betBET sure does love them some Beyonce, Drake and Jay Z. The music superstars lead the 2014 BET Award nominations with five apiece.

    The nominations were announced earlier today and Queen Bey was recognized in the Best R&B/Pop Female Artist, Best Collaboration, and Video of the Year. Her nods in the Best Collaboration and Video of the Year categories comes courtesy of her inescapable hit “Drunk In Love.” Beyonce received a second nomination in the Video of the Year race for the steamy visuals for “Partition.”


    Most of Jay Z’s nominations are tied to his wife’s due to his work on “Drunk In Love,” however, Jay got a solo nomination for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and in Best Collaboration for “Holy Grail” which features Justin Timberlake. Drake will battle it out with Mr. Carter for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist as well as Best Collaboration for his song “Hold On, We’re Going Home” featuring Majid Jordan. Drake was also nominated in the Best Group slot with his Young Money brethren.

    Newcomer August Alsina walked away with four nominations including Best New Artist and Best R&B/Pop Male Artist. He’s tied with Man of the Year Pharrell Williams.

    After announcing the nominees, BET President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen G. Hill stated, “This year’s nominees represent the best of the culture. It’s great to see our talented new artist’s right alongside our more beloved ones with long careers. We appreciate our BET Awards nomination committee, over 300 strong, for their efforts and congratulate all the nominees.”
