The Weeknd, who is about to enter a new era with his project “Dawn”, follows Rodrigo with six nominations. The R&B crooner, who is named Artist of the Year for the fourth time, kicked off 2021 with an outstanding performance at the Super Bowl halftime show, which saw him sing hits from his album After Hours, which topped the Billboard 200 for four weeks.
Taylor Swift – who won the AMA for Artist of the Year in 2020 and racked up a record-breaking eighth nomination in the category – re-recorded her old albums, including April’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version), in addition to releasing her ninth album studio Also in December.
The nominees are completed by Ariana Grande with her fourth artist of the year and Drake with her fifth.

K-pop’s flagship awards ceremony, MAMA, arrives in the United States.
As part of its ambitions for global expansion, the MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards) will take place in the United States “in a few years”, organizers announced on Monday (November 15th).
While no specific timeline has been set, coming to America will be no small feat. But it will happen. The team behind MAMA, entertainment and lifestyle company CJ ENM, has made the United States and its music giant market a priority, as part of their plan to solidify the ceremony’s position. worldwide awards ceremony.
“MAMA has been hosted primarily in Asia such as Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Korea,” comments Kim Hyun-soo, general manager of CJ ENM’s music content headquarters.
“As K-pop continues to gain influence globally, we plan to expand our presence to border regions in Asia and beyond. In a few years, we plan to host MAMA in the United States, the world’s largest music market.
These ambitions were revealed at a press conference in Seoul on Monday, where details were presented for the upcoming awards ceremony.
The 13th edition of MAMA will take place on December 11, with British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran booked to perform that evening. Sheeran has a special bond with K-pop fans through his collaboration with BTS on their 2021 hit “Permission to Dance”.
“Permission to Dance” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July, replacing another BTS song, “Butter.”
Apple Music’s global creative director Zane Lowe also spoke at Monday’s press conference. The tech giant is teaming up with MAMA and its Apple Music platform powers the voting process.
As part of this alliance, Apple Music users can play their part in dictating the world’s Top 10 fans.
By playing an artist’s music for more than 30 seconds on Apple Music, up to five times a day, that data will be incorporated into the judging criteria, Lowe explained. After the pre-vote period ends on November 22 and the next on November 25, fans can broadcast and influence the vote for one artist per day until December 9.
The tech giant’s partnership with MAMA “was a natural fit given the scale and credibility of the show over the past 12 years,” he explained.
K-pop has exploded in the United States, with BTS in the lead. The septet recorded six No.1s on the Billboard Hot 100 and five No.1s on the Billboard 200, and, in recent weeks, was first credited with RIAA triple platinum status, for “Dynamite”.
