Last night, the 2021 American Music Awards, or AMAs, went down with Cardi B as this year’s host. Major artists like Tyler the Creator, Chlöe Bailey, Jennifer Lopez, Giveon, and much more delivered gripping performances. Not to mention, New Kids on the Block and New Edition gave us quite the throwback moment with their set during the award show. Aside from the evening’s show-stopping musical acts, some artists racked up huge wins for the evening like Megan Thee Stallion who won Favorite Trending Song, Female Hip-Hop Artist, and Hip Hop Album. Drake won this year’s Favorite Male Hip Hop Artist, making this the sixth time in his career to win an AMA award.
