(AP) — Beyonce dominated last year's BET Awards with "Lemonade," but there's more juice in her cup.

The pop star is nominated for seven awards at the 2017 BET Awards, the network announced Monday. The show will take place June 25 in Los Angeles. Bruno Mars follows Beyonce with five nominations.

Beyonce, who won video of the year with "Formation" last year, is nominated for the top prize again with "Sorry." Her competition includes her sister Solange ("Cranes In the Sky"); Mars' playful "24K Magic"; Migos' No. 1 hit "Bad and Boujee"; and Big Sean's anthemic "Bounce Back."

Beyonce and Solange will go head-to-head for best female R&B/pop artist, along with Rihanna, Mary J. Blige and Kehlani. Chance the Rapper, who scored four nominations and won three Grammys this year, will battle Lamar, Drake, J. Cole, Future and Big Sean for best male hip-hop artist. Nicki Minaj will compete with rival Remy Ma for best female hip-hop artist.
