Ciara will join Ludacris as the host of this year’s Billboard Music Awards on May 22.

“It is my honour to host the Billboard Music Awards for the third year and a pleasure to host with my good friend Ciara,” Luda told a magazine.

Ciara expressed similar excitement: “The Billboard Music Awards is one of the best award shows to honor chart success.

My great friend Ludacris and I have also shared songs together on the Billboard chart,” she said, alluding to classic collaborations like Ride and Oh.

“I look forward to sharing the stage with him on this special night. It will definitely be a night to remember!”
