    the girls keep surpassing covíd cayucky!!🤢🤮
    As predicted and expected.

    Where’s she nominated?? Why wasn’t she preforming?? I thought she was that girl??

    Lmao that psychotic Stan is utterly delusional.

    And before you bring up Normani, she has no music out so you’ll have to keep crying about that! 😂😂

    Your girl has music out and it was paid a dust 💨 by everyone

    tour = rejected 🤭😂😂✅
    Solo career = rejected

    We know that’s right 😂😂😂🤳✅

    IHeart Radio Music award is a million times better than the radio Disney award. It has more value more mature categories. Radio Disney is a bit childish lol!! Congrats to all the winners.

    Congrats to Dua for winning Female Artist of the Year Lol yess we saw this coming much deserved. Dua stated that there is more to come such as her tour and of course new music. Physical is now Platinum in the U.S imagine if she really promoted that song lol. 4 singles from Future Nostalgia are platinum status. Dua now has 5 songs over a billion streams. Number 3 Artist Globally on Spotify and Number 1 amongst females Globally damn Dua is killing it!
