Could Rihanna Pass Taylor Swift for Most BBMAs Wins?

Taylor Swift isn’t nominated this year but Swifties should have some serious interest in this year’s show.

After slaying us all with her killer beats and swag on ‘Anti’ this past year, Rihanna has racked up 14 BBMAs nominations, which is more than any other female nominee this year.

As of now, Taylor holds the record for most BBMAs wins, with 21. Taylor overtook Garth Brooks for the top spot in 2015 after the success of ‘1989’ earned her 8 BBMAs.

2 years later, Taylor’s reign is up for grabs. Currently at 12 BBMAs, if Rihanna scores big this year and wins 10 or more of her 14 nominations, she will take Taylor’s spot as the leading winner with 22 total BBMAs.

This is serious fandom street cred at stake! But wait, there’s more! Rihanna, who leads the ladies’ field, (hyperlink to gif story) could also break the record if she were to win at least 10 of her 14 nominations. Grab the popcorn!

Just to highlight how HUGE of a deal this is, take a look at the list of all-time, most-earned BBMAs here. So. Many. Legends!

The race is on. Will @champagnepapi, @TheChainsmokers, @twentyonepilots or @badgalriri re-write #BBMAs history this year?
