And the Winners Are: How to Download Tracks From the BET Awards

The 2017 BET Awards took over downtown Los Angeles this weekend with a who’s who of A-list talent taking home trophies for their music and movie-making magic this past year. The big winner of the night was Beyonce, who took home the award for Album of the Year (“Lemonade”) and for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist. Unfortunately, the singer was a no-show at the ceremony, likely still at home taking care of her newborn twins.

There was plenty of other star power though. Check out this year’s winners and follow the links to watch or listen to their BET Award-winning releases.
