On May 21, the 2017 Billboard Music Awards is honoring the best music artists who dominated the Billboard charts within the last year. And the Tylt is predicting the winners in the "Top Artist" categories in a series of BBMA brackets. The newcomers nominated for Top New Artist are some of the best artists in the music game. (Unfortunately, we had to leave off a nominee in this bracket—Lil Uzi Vert.)

It's Zayn Malik versus Desiigner, and Alessia Cara versus Lukas Graham in our first round.

Alessia broke out with her R&B smash "Here," but she also had the youth loving themselves with her empowerment anthem and power pop ballad "Scars to Your Beautiful" in 2016.

Watch the music video to "Scars to Your Beautiful" below.

The pop-soul ballad "7 Years" is one of the the biggest hits of 2016. And the ear worm may garner the Danish band the coveted Top New Artist award.
