Kendrick Lamar leads the way in next year's Grammy nominations with nods in eight categories. Though seven of his eight nominations come from "Black Panther", he also earned a nod for co-writing Jay Rock's "Win", up for best rap song.
Drake is the second most nominated artist, as he's up for: Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Record of the Year ("God's Plan"), two for Best Rap Song ("God's Plan" and "Sicko Mode"), and two for Best Rap Performance ("Nice for What" and "Sicko Mode"). She will go up against fellow nominees Cardi B and Janelle Monae in the Album of the Year category.
Mac Miller, who died of an accidental overdose earlier this year, received his first-ever Grammy nomination for his album "Swimming", according to Billboard.
If Lamar felt like he got snubbed previous year, then he'll feel better about the 2019 Grammys, as he earned more nominations than anybody else, with eight total.
Thanks to the hit "Black Panther" film Lamar - whose album "DAMN" won the Pulitzer Prize for music this year - once again has a chance to win the coveted Album of the Year prize after three prior losses.
He didn't run away with the crown, though, as Drake was right behind him with seven nominations of his own. Of the eight best new artist nominees, six are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.
The other rap categories have a wide range of choices as well. Songwriter Geoffrey Warburton, who also hails from Pickering, shares the In My Blood song nomination with Mendes.
Some Hip Hop artists were also nominated in the R&B categories.
Other big name nominees include The Carters, Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande, and Travis Scott. The Carters (Jay-Z and Beyoncé) earned nods for Best R&B Performance ("Summer") and Best Urban Contemporary Album (Everything Is Love). Justin Timberlake, whose "Man of the Woods" albums flopped earlier this year, picked up a nod for "Say Something", his collaboration with Chris Stapleton.
Among artists with Chicago connections, the nominees included Fall Out Boy for best rock album ("Mania"); Kanye West for best producer, nonclassical; John Prine for best Americana album ("The Tree of Forgiveness"); and Jeff Tweedy for best American roots song (Mavis Staples' "Build a Bridge").
The Grammy winners will be announced out at a ceremony in Los Angeles on February 10. Monáe, herself snagged an Album Of The Year nomination for her most recent project, Dirty Computer.
The couple, however, have been surprisingly shut out of the main categories including Best Album.
