Rihanna continues to give God the glory
Barbadian Grammy Award-winning songstress, Robyn Rihanna Fenty has been nominated for five music awards and 2018 has only just gotten underway.
The ‘Lemon’ singer is up for five iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Rihanna will vie for Female Artist of the Year, Best Collaboration, Hip-Hop Song of the Year, R&B Artist of the Year, and Song of the Year.
DJ Khaled’s ‘Wild Thoughts’ featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller has earned her the nominations in three categories – Song of the Year, Best Collaboration and Hip-Hop Song of the Year.
Rihanna, who has been fairly quiet on social media for the year so far following the tragic and untimely passing of Tavon Alleyne, her younger cousin, shared the news on her Instagram with the caption:
‘Bless! 5 #iHeartAwards nominations. Thank you @iHeartRadio and all you guys for listening and requesting!! Glory to God!!!!’ And it included ‘the praying hands’ emoji.
The Awards show is set to take place on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at the historic Forum in Los Angeles.
According to the iHeartRadio website, this will be historic year as for the first time ever, this year iHeartRadio will present seven awards in the seven nights leading up to the March 11th telecast. Each night at 8 p.m. ET, an artist will be presented their award and give an acceptance speech.
