Chris Brown’s performance will come a little over a month before he releases his fifth studio album, Fortune, on July 3.The Grammy Award-winning singer is loving the success of the album’s current single, “Turn Up the Music,” which currenly sits at #2 on “Billboard’s R&B and Hip-Hop Songs Chart”.
Also, Chris Brown will be up for four Billboard Music Awards, including “Top Male Artist,” while singer Rihanna has been nominated in 13 categories this year.
Lil Wayne is up for 10 awards, and the duo of Bad Meets Evil are up for “Top New Artist”, along with Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, and Foster the People.
Kind of Curios as to why they would place Eminem and Royce 5’9 in the “Top new Artist” category, I mean they’ve been around for a long time.
ABC will air the show live from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on May 20.
