It’s almost that time of year: The 2016 BET Awards will go down on Sunday, June 26, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET., and the nominees are in!

Drake, Beyonce, and Rihanna lead the pack with multiple noms; Drake leads the way with nine noms, including Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and Video of the Year for “Hotline Bling” and “Work,” his collab with Rihanna.

Beyonce and Rihanna both tie with five noms,  competing for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, Best Collaboration, and Video of the Year (“Formation” / “Work”).
