Each year, the BET Awards returns to celebrate the “accomplishments from Black icons in film, television, music, literature and philanthropy,” and this year was no exception. Taraji P. Henson hosted the show, which featured performances by Lizzo, Latto, Lil Wayne, Chloe, Giveon, Chance the Rapper and more. The program kicked off with a high-energy performance from Lizzo, who brought her viral hit “It’s About Damn Time” to the stage.

Latto, whose hit song “Big Energy” has found major success on the charts, took home Best New Artist. While accepting her award, the rapper tearfully referenced one of her songs saying, “It’s giving boss bitch!” She continued to reference the recent Supreme Court ruling that reversed Roe v. Wade, saying, “It’s giving pro-choice. It’s never giving a man policing my body.”

Jazmine Sullivan, whose album “Heaux Tales” recently earned the singer her first Grammy Award, took home Best Female R&B/Pop. “Essence,” by Wizkid Feat. Justin Bieber & Tems, took home Best Collaboration. The song was one of the biggest of last summer and became the first top 10 Nigerian song on the Billboard Hot 100.
