Thereâ€™s no dividing this unstoppable trio. Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Beyonce take the lead in nominations at the upcoming BET Awards. The Atlanta Journal Constitution writes:
Kanye West has the most nominations with seven, while his mentor, Jay-Z, earned five, and Jay-Z’s wife, BeyoncÃ©, received six.
Jay-Z and West collaborated last year on the album “Watch the Throne.” Their songs â€” “â€¦ In Paris” and “Otis” â€” are up for video of the year. BeyoncÃ© has two nominations in that category with “Love on Top” and “Countdown.”
