Usher And Alicia Keys Receive Nominations For The 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards

Nominees for the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards have been revealed. R&B superstars Alicia Keys and Usher are among this year’s nominees, which also include Ms. Lauryn Hill, Teyana Taylor and Kaytranada.

Hosted by Fat Joe, the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards will air Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 9 p.m. ET on BET.

Usher has two nods for his contribution to City Girls’ latest single “Good Love,” including Best Hip Hop Video and Best Collaboration.

The party-ready anthem, which samples Lathun’s 1997 track “Freak It,” was released on July 1. It was accompanied by a video directed by Daps.

Keys received a nomination for Impact Track for “City of Gods,” her collaboration with rappers Fivio Foreign and Kanye West. In July, they gained a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) after selling more than 500,000 equivalent units.

“City of Gods,” released on Feb. 15, debuted at No. 46 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song appears on Fivio Foreign’s debut album, B.I.B.L.E.

On April 7, Keys released “City of Gods (Part II),” a stripped-down version of the drill track. She kept her catchy chorus on the song but added two new verses from her perspective.

A few days after the song’s release, it was announced that Keys’ debut album, Songs in A Minor, was added to the National Recording Registry.

“I’m so honored and grateful that Songs in A Minor, the entire album, gets to be recognized as such a powerful body of work that is just going to be timeless,” said Keys.

Since then, Keys has released KEYS II, the deluxe edition of 2021’s KEYS that includes two new features with Brent Fayaiz (“Trillions“) and Lucky Daye (“Stay”), as well as a couple of remixes to “In Common.”

Of her KEYS album, the 15-time Grammy winner told Rated R&B, “It is an invitation for all of us to show up to ourselves and not hold back any part of ourselves,” she said. “I think a lot of us oftentimes feel like we have to dim it down and small it down. No, I refuse it anymore. I invite us all to refuse it because there’s a power and a special energy that we all have.”
