Hey Music Lovers,
This will be a two part conversation because so much happened last night that I’m still trying to wrap my thoughts around it. I’m going to start with the award winners and my thoughts about it.
Song of the Summer– Cardi B, Bad Bunny & Balvin-I like it
My personal opinion it should’ve been either Ella Mai “Boo’d up” or Drake “In my feelings” both of these songs were on repeat on every radio and media outlet. It got to the point I was getting tired of both of them.
Video of the Year-Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug-Havana
My personal opinion it should’ve been either Bruno Mars or Childish Gambino. Bruno Mars visual was a better video and overall fun video. Childish Gambino video was a better dramatic message for a video.
Artist of the Year- Camila Cabello
My personal opinion Drake or Bruno Mars just me.
Song of the Year- Post Malone ft. 21 Savage-Rockstar
My personal opinion either Bruno Mars or Drake should’ve won this they were both again on repeat on radio stations.
Best new Artist- Cardi B
I agree she had the best year for a new artist with her singles and being a feature on others albums.
Best Collaboration- Jennifer Lopez ft. DJ Khales & Cardi B-Dinero
My personal opinion and anyone who knows me knows I love me some J.Lo..But honestly the only reason she won is because she had perform and was there. N.E.R.D & Rhianna “Lemon” was by far the best collaboration.
Best Pop-Ariana Grande-No Tears Left to Cry
My opinion Demi Lovato “Sorry not sorry” or P!nk “What about us” is two great songs and let’s be honest who wasn’t bumping “sorry not sorry”.
Best Hip Hop-Nicki Minaj-Chun-Li
So I saved this category for last and for a good reason. So a lot people is going to disagree with me on this but am going say it anyway. How in the hell did she win against not only Cardi B, Cole, Migos…but Drake and The Cartes..(side eye) Really!!! Had it been different people in this category like, Post Malone, Lil Pump, Lil Uzi Vert or Logic. Then I would’ve said ok, yeah, she won that! But come on, lets be real..Jay Z or Drake..Who are we kidding! Please stay tune for part 2 of the 2018 MTV VMA’s review. If you have your own opinions about your winners post your comments below and let’s have a friendly discussion about it.
