The entire set was full of energy and Megan never faltered once. Other performers at the virtual event included Lil Wayne, Usher, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and more. obviously, the BET Awards were forced to take place a bit differently this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the biggest stars in Black entertainment were still honored.
This year, Beyonce was the recipient of the Humanitarian Award this year, while stars like Drake, Cardi B, Lizzo, Chris Brown and plenty of others received nominations at the show. Megan, herself, was nominated for five awards at this year’s show: Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Album of the Year, Video of the Year, Viewers’ Choice Award and Best Collaboration. Before her performance, she was announced as the winner of Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

She was also honored at the 2019 Billboard Women in Music event, and she won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Power Anthem for her song, “Hot Girl Summer.”
“Hot Girl Summer” helped skyrocket Megan to superstardom in 2019. The song was released in August of last year, and reached No. 11 on the U.S. Hot 100 Charts, as well as No. 5 on the U.S. Rap Charts. In March 2020, Megan released her second big hit, “Savage,” which eventually reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 charts. Beyonce was featured on a remix of the track. What a year!
