MTV's Video Music Awards take over New York City a week from today, so the time is upon us to catch up on the dozens of videos that might take home a Moon Person this year.
Cardi B is dominating the nominations with 10 total, including Best New Artist and Artist of the Year, very much thanks to hit music videos for "Bartier Cardi" and her Bruno Mars collab "Finesse (Remix)." Childish Gambino's "This Is America" is expected to take home a few awards (or Adam Levine will be pissed!) with seven nominations total, including Best Video with a Message, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Editing, Best Choreography, Best Art Direction and most important, Video of the Year.
Beyonce and Jay-Z teamed up as The Carters to get eight nominations after stunning their fans with hit "APESHIT," which was shot in the world famous Louvre Museum -- a location only music royalty like this power couple could have expected to lock down.
