The Weeknd will be the artist to beat at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards after landing a total of 16 nominations.
The singer will compete for prizes including Top Artist and Top Male Artist, with both categories seeing him pitted against Drake, Juice WRLD, and Pop Smoke.
Rapper DaBaby is the second most-nominated with 11 nods, ahead of the late Pop Smoke with 10.
Leading the female artists are Gabby Barrett and Megan Thee Stallion with nine and seven mentions, respectively.
Drake is on course to make Billboard history at the ceremony if he emerges triumphant in any of the seven categories he is shortlisted for, as he is already the artist with the most wins of all time with 27 gongs to his name.
Meanwhile, disgraced country star Morgan Wallen is in the running for six categories thanks to the huge success of his recent release, Dangerous: The Double Album, but he won't be invited to participate in the ceremony due to the N-word controversy which derailed his rising career in late January.
"Morgan Wallen is a finalist this year based on charting," reads a statement issued by producers at Dick Clark Productions. "As his recent conduct does not align with our core values, we will not be including him on the show in any capacity (performing, presenting, accepting).
"It is heartening and encouraging to hear that Morgan is taking steps in his anti-racist journey and starting to do some meaningful work. We plan to evaluate his progress and will consider his participation in future shows."
The winners, based on U.S. chart data, will be unveiled at a televised event held in Los Angeles on 23 May.
