All three musicians have been nominated five times each in categories at the awards ceremony, with Pharrell Williams and rising star August Alsina not far behind on four nods each.

Beyonce will compete twice for video of the year with the songs Partition and Drunk In Love, which features her husband Jay Z.

Her competition for video of the year includes Pharrell's Happy, Drake's Worst Behavior and Chris Brown's Fine China.

On Monday, celebrity website TMZ posted a leaked security video that appears to show Beyonce's sister, Solange, attacking Jay Z inside a New York hotel elevator with Beyonce standing by on the night of the Met Gala.

The BET Awards will take place on June 29 from the Nokia Theatre LA Live.
