NEW YORK (AP) — Beyonce and Jay Z are making headlines for another reason this week: They lead in nominations at the BET Awards.

The network announced Wednesday the performers are nominated for five awards each, along with Drake. Pharrell and rising performer August Alsina each has four nominations.

Chris Rock will host the BET Awards, to air live June 29 from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.

Beyonce will compete twice for video of the year with the songs "Partition" and "Drunk in Love," which features Jay Z. Her competition includes Pharrell's "Happy," Drake's "Worst Behavior" and Chris Brown's "Fine China."

Celebrity website TMZ on Monday posted a leaked security video appearing to show Beyonce's sister, Solange, attacking Jay Z inside a New York hotel elevator in Beyonce's presence.
