Beyoncé‘s history-making, record-breaking visual album is poised for another big night — this time at the Video Music Awards in August.

MTV announced the 2016 nominees in a Facebook Live video on Tuesday, July 26, and the Beyhive should be very pleased.

The “Partition” singer earned a career-best 11 nominations for Lemonade,including Video of the Year for “Formation” and Best Female Video for “Hold Up.”

She’ll be competing in both categories against Adele, whose album 25was one of the most hotly anticipated releases of the last year.

The British songstress, 28, scored an impressive eight nominations, including seven for her October 2015 “Hello” video, which has more than 1.6 billion views (and counting) on YouTube.

Her remaining nomination is in the Best Visual Effects category for “Send My Love (to Your New Lover).”

The list also includes nods for Drake‘s “Hotline Bling,” Justin Bieber‘s “Sorry,”Calvin Harris and Rihanna‘s “This Is What You Came For” and Kanye West‘s infamous, NSFW “Famous,” which featured naked wax figures of celebs including Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump and Chris Brown.
