Migos and Stefflon Don received nominations for the 2018 BET awards. Migos’ nominations include Best Group, Video of the Year for “Walk It Talk It”, Album of the Year for ‘Culture II’, and the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award, while Stefflon Don has been nominated for Best International Act.
Migos had a hot 2017 with a plethora of features between the members, as well as MTV VMA and Grammy award nominations. The trio dropped their sophomore album ‘Culture II’ in January which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 charts, while the singles “MotorSport” featuring Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, “Stir Fry”, and “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake have peaked at No. 6, 8, and 10 on the charts, respectively. Migos also tied The Beatles for most simultaneous Billboard Hot 100 entries among groups this year. These BET Award nominations are coming off the heels of the announcement of the Aubrey and the Three Migos tour featuring Drake, which Drake announced on Monday.
UK singer, rapper, and songwriter Stefflon Don joined Motown in 2017 and released the single “Hurtin’ Me” with French Montana, which currently has 70 million views on YouTube. She has also recently launched a capsule collection with U.K.-based fashion brand Boohoo. In 2017, she was nominated for three MOBO awards.
