On March 11, the 5th Annual iHeartRadio Music Awards is honoring the best music artists heard across radio stations throughout the year. Pop crooners crushed the game in 2017; so the Tylt is joining in on the voting and bracketing which artist should win Male Artist of the Year. Unfortunately, our bracket had to leave someone off, and that's Charlie Puth. The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes were respectively among the top 10 male artists of 2017, according to Billboard. Fandoms can officially vote via iHeartRadio's site, but we are also asking you all to predict who will win the coveted award with our hashtags!

Bruno is fresh off of sweeping the Grammys with seven wins, and now he's the one to beat at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards. 

Below are some significant lyrics to his #1 smash "That's What I Like," per Genius.

🎶Gold jewelry shining so bright. Strawberry champagne on ice. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like. Sex by the fire at night. Silk sheets and diamonds all white. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like.🎶

But let's not forget, The Weeknd is a "starboy," recently winning Best Urban Contemporary Album at the Grammys. When it comes to R&B crooning, The Weeknd is Bruno's biggest competition. 

Below are some notable lyrics to "I Feel It Coming," per Genius

🎶You've been scared of love and what it did to you. You don't have to run, I know what you've been through. Just a simple touch and it can set you free. We don't have to rush when you're alone with me.🎶
