The sisters will face off for best female R&B/pop artist on June 25.

A little sibling rivalry never hurt the Knowles sisters, as both have proven to be sacred treasures in their respective lanes of music.

At this year's 2017 BET Award Beyoncé and Solange will face off for the best female R&B/pop artist, along with Rihanna, Mary J. Blige and Kehlani.

On Monday, the nominations for the always lively award show were announced.

Leading the pack are (a very pregnant) Queen Bey and Bruno Mars, with seven and five nominations, respectively.

As reported by the AP, Beyoncé is nominated for best music video again with “Sorry.” Her competition includes Solange's “Cranes In the Sky", Mars’ playful “24K Magic”, Migos’ No. 1 hit “Bad and Boujee”, and Big Sean’s anthemic “Bounce Back.”

Also in the mix are Kendrick Lamar, Drake, J. Cole, Future and Big Sean for best male hip-hop artist. And Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma for best female hip-hop artist, an award Minaj has won since 2010.

Needless to say, this should be an interesting show.
