Well, wonder no more. For, the nominees list has been revealed.

Much like the charts, Drake leads the pack with a whopping six nominations.

Following closely are 2020 chart-toppers Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch – who’ve both nabbed five a piece.

Elsewhere, the likes of Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B are amongst the stars who also scooped notable noms at show – which will air simultaneously across BET, MTV, VH1 and for the first time CBS.

2009 brought with it the introduction of Pop’s next big thing Lady Gaga.

This week’s From The Vault pick has a lot to do with it. Today’s selection is ‘Poker Face.’

Like predecessor ‘Just Dance,’ ‘Face’ was also penned plus produced by RedOne and Mother Monster herself.

Reportedly dealing with sexual ambiguity, the song references Boney M’s disco classic ‘Ma Baker’ on it’s hook and was a huge hit for Miss Germanotta.

Hitting #1 in the US and the UK (as well as Canada and Australia), it marked the diva’s second consecutive chart-topper in said territories and ushered her inside the Top 10 of many others.

Directed by Ray Kay and Anthony Mandler, the song’s video is set in a mansion and sees Gaga dancing by the pool and engaging in a game of strip poker with house guests.

In many a manner, this video was a true visual introduction to the ever-colorful and ever-evolving “Gaga” aesthetic. From eccentric glasses, metallic accessories and crazy outfits, it was the first time the world could truly privy to her complex universe.

The video received 4 nominations at the 2009 VMAs; a night that also saw her deliver a show-stopping performance. 


After the introspective ‘Joanne’, it’s great to see Lady Gaga re-embrace her Pop roots, both musically and visually, with ‘Chromatica.’

As demonstrated with this classic, the fun also lies in her fantastic videos and stage shows, and this new album definitely lends itself to big visual moments. One we’re especially ready for is ‘Sour Candy’ from Gaga and the ladies of Blackpink.
