Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum hip-hop superstar Drake has received an astounding total of five nominations in top categories at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. The ceremony will be broadcast live on ABC at 8pm ET from the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, NV Sunday May 18.

Personally, the multi-talented rapper and producer is vying for “Top Male Artist” and “Top Rap Artist”. His unanimously acclaimed third full-length album, Nothing Was The Same on Young Money/Cash Money Records, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and became the “seventh best-selling album of 2013″—stands in the running for “Top Rap Album” and “Top Billboard 200 Album”. Meanwhile, his ubiquitous #1 smash “Hold On We’re Going Home” featuring Majid Jordan competes for “Top R&B Song”.

Truly making good on the promise of his latest album title, nothing has been the same since he dropped the latest rap epic. Drake also has big plans in the works for 2014 and beyond…

Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records would like to congratulate him on this latest achievement and wish him continued success.
