With regards to the nominees, Drake, The Weeknd, Beyoncé, and more will be competing for Artist of the Year, while Steve Lacy and Latto will be among those with a shot to take home New Artist of the Year.

Kendrick Lamar's Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Gunna's DS4EVER, and Future's I NEVER LIKED YOU are early favorites in the Favorite Hip-Hop Album category.

Landing a spot on the lineup for the American Music Awards comes as J.I.D is prepping his next album. Speaking with Complex for a recent interview, the Dreamville rapper remarked that he plans on teaming up with DJ Drama for the project.

“Me and [DJ] Drama are really gonna do it right,” J.I.D said. “I’m talkin’ about on other n****s beats. We’re going to do a DiCaprio 3.”

As for Tems, she recently helped co-write Rihanna's comeback single, "Lift Me Up," for the soundtrack to Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever.

“After speaking with Ryan [Coogler] and hearing his direction for the film and the song, I wanted to write something that portrays a warm embrace from all the people that I’ve lost in my life,” Tems shared.

She also covered Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” for the film.

The 2022 American Music Awards is scheduled to air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 8:00 PM, ET.
