Drake and Skepta are among the artists who have been nominated for awards at the 2017 BRIT Awards.

Britain’s Grammy equivalent goes down next month, and Drizzy finds himself up for two awards, including International Male Solo Artist (along with The Weeknd and Bruno Mars) and International Group, as a duo with Future.

Skepta’s LP Konnichiwa is up for Album of the Year.

Other urban artists who received nominations include Beyonce, Solange and Rihanna who are in the International Female Solo Artist category. A Tribe Called Quest are on the ballot in the International Group section.

In years past, the BRIT Awards has been the spot for some lit performances. In 2015, Kanye West debuted the single “All Day” with a fiery showing that featured dozens of extras.

Last year, Drake and Rihanna shut the show down with a PDA-filled performance of the Ri Ri song “Work.”

Also that year, The Weeknd performed his smash hit “The Hills.”

The 2017 version takes place on Feb. 22
