Bruno is living it up. His "24K Magic" single and album have been smash hits, and he followed up with a #1 pop hit "That's What I Like." His album and singles are nominated in some of the top categories. And he's arguably the most successful male nominee in the past year. He's bound to win Best Male R&B/Pop Artist.

Not so fast, because the Weeknd has similar numbers. His lead single and album of the same name, "Starboy," are highly regarded and commercially successful. And he has yet another hit to his name, "I Feel It Coming." 

If Bruno actually is the frontrunner, the Weeknd isn't going to make it easy for him to win. The Weeknd is beloved in both R&B and pop circles, so he might take this one.

Check out the music video to "I Feel It Coming" below.
