Choice Male Artist: Bruno Mars or the Weeknd?

The Weeknd and Bruno Mars are dominating the R&B and pop scene with an array of hits, and that's why both crooners are nominated for Choice Male Artist the 2017 Teen Choice Awards. Bruno's got the funk, and that's apparent with "That's What I Like" becoming a huge #1 hit and now a summertime jam. The Weeknd went from alternative R&B to electro R&B/mainstream pop, but he's still a starboy just cranking out smash hits. Who will win Choice Male Artist? 🎤 🎸

Again, Bruno has got the funk, and when you got the funk—you win. Ha! Bruno is on top with his #1 "24K Magic" album and tour. In fact, we like that "That's What I Like" is also nominated for Choice Song: Male Artist, Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song and Choice Summer Song, while "24K Magic" is nominated for Choice Pop Song. He's a hitmaker, and hitmakers win awards.

Below are some notable lyrics to "24K Magic," per Genius

🎶 Players, put yo' pinky rings up to the moon
Girls, what y'all trying to do?
24 karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Uh, look out!🎶

What can we say? The Weeknd is a starboy, and that's clear with the success of his album and single of the same name. While "Reminder" and "Secrets" are expected to blow up, this electro R&B/pop superstar scored a smash hit with "I Feel It Coming," which isn't the most appropriate song for teenagers (we won't tell). But Teen Choice is aware of his starboy status just as much as the XO Crew is. With that being said, the Weeknd might be walking away with a surfboard award.

Below are some significant lyrics to the Weeknd's newest hit "Secrets," also thanks to Genius

🎶 It's a lie, a lie
I catch you every time
In your lust, your lust
Every time you close your eyes 🎶
