Hip-Hop And R&B Artists Dominate The 2018 Billboard Music Awards

The 2018 Billboard Music Awards took place on Sunday (May 20), and hip-hop and R&B artists took home a bevy of the night’s awards.

Some artists took a Billboard Award home for the first time (like Khalid, who is this year’s “Top New Artist”), and some who have multiple statuettes on their mantles already (such as Drake, who has 15 Billboard Music Awards including the one he won tonight).
