Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande, & Justin Bieber Among Early Snubs at 2021 Billboard Music Awards [#BBMAs]

Published: Sunday 23rd May 2021 by Rashad

The 2020 Billboard charts saw no shortage of Pop hitmakers Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, and Ariana Grande as the trio of acts respectively dominated the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 with their slew of hits.

Yet despite their individual accomplishments, all three left the 2021 Billboard Music Awards empty-handed.

Thanks to ‘Yummy,’ ‘Intentions,’ and other hits found aboard his fifth chart-topping album, 2020’s ‘Changes,’  Bieber entered the 2021 Billboard Music Awards with five nominations (Top R&B Song, Top R&B Male, Top Radio Songs, Top Song Sales Artist, and Top R&B Artist).  Before the ceremony even began, he’d lost four of the five trophies to fellow Canadian singer The Weeknd.   Later, the Top Song Sales Artist trophy went to BTS.

It’s also worth noting that Justin owns the record for most career BBMA wins among male vocalists. By the end of the night, The Weeknd stands to break said record.

Dua dominated sales and streaming charts with ‘Don’t Start Now,’ ‘Levitating,’ and ‘Break My Heart’ from her hotly-selling 2020 album, ‘Future Nostalgia’ – a feat her fans were sure would land BBMAs in her future.

Nominated for four trophies at the 2021 ceremony (Top Female Artist, Top Radio Song, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist), Lipa left without one.

Ariana Grande netted three Hot 100 #1 singles in 2020 – ‘Rain on Me’ (with Lady Gaga), ‘Stuck With U’ (with Justin Bieber), and ‘Positions’ (by her lonesome) – along with the #1 album ‘Position.’

Despite entering the 2021 Billboard Music Awards with 3 nods, her total career wins – 2 – remains unchanged.

    Dua deserves to be snubbed from all award shows cause her success is a scam.
    It’s all smoke and mirrors

    How many times has she been exposed for using payola? TWICE. First by rolling stone magazine and more recently by billboard

      Damn btch you’re so fcking bored, is this all you do all day? I feel sorry for your life. You got something to say about everybody, but no words for that donkey of a fcking btch Camila who’s career has yet to go to different heights. Sis is at an all time stand still. NO ALBUM COMING. Singles will NOT chart. Last single FLOPPED HARD. You better hold on to her previous payola for dear life, because that’s all she’s got moving forward 💀😭😭

    Lol Payola my ass who cares hahaha. The hater in the comments that repeats it self tirelessly. We all knew, The Weeknd was going to dominate this award show. This award show is about who had the most sales and streaming. Dua could care less about this award she is preparing for her Tour this Fall. Dua has 3 Grammys something ALOT of Artist don’t even have. The Billboard Music Awards is not that important. There are many artist who do well on the charts. The GRAMMYS is the highest ACCOLADE in the music industry. Dua is shining her Grammys at home LMFAO. Dua clearly doesn’t care about a darn Billboard Award lol she didn’t even post when she wasn’t nominated.. She just WON ALBUM OF THE YEAR at the Brit Awards . Dua is not playing she’s working on her 3rd Album and creating big budget videos with her team 😂😂😂
