The recording artist is up for a leading 10 VMA nominations including Best Video, Song, Artist of the Year and Best New Artist.
Jay-Z and Beyonce, who released joint album Everything is Love in June under the name The Carters, earned eight nominations including Video of the Year, Best Collaboration and Best Hip-Hop. Childish Gambino, the music persona of actor Donald Glover, and Drake each earned seven nominations.
Instead of one host, the VMAs broadcast will feature dozens of celebrity presenters.
