Here are five artists we’re rooting for at the 2022 NAACP Awards!
Megan Thee Stallion
After graduating college, Megan Thee Stallion is nominated for the Entertainer of the Year and earned all of it!
Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak are the sultry duo we didn't know we needed! The pair are nominated for Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration.
Nominated for Outstanding Album, The R&B songstress completely blew our minds with her latest album Heaux Tales.
With multiple nominations, H.E.R. might be destined to walk away with an award. This year, she appears in the Outstanding Female Artist category.
Lil Nas X
Lil Nas X is also nominated for Entertainer of the Year. And we can all agree that he does not disappoint when it comes to performing! So torn.
