Lamar leads Grammy noms, where women make a comeback

Lamar leads Grammy noms, where women make a comeback

Boi-1da, born Matthew Samuels in Toronto, was nominated as producer for his body of work this year, which includes songs with Drake, Cardi B, G-Eazy, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Taylor Swift, a two-time album of the year victor, also only earned one nomination - her "reputation" album is up best pop vocal album.

With 84 Grammy Award categories, each year's list of nominations can be counted on to deliver a number of surprises for the music industry.

Hip-hop and pop dominated the album of the year nominations, while rock failed to garner even one mention.

Six of the eight best new artist nominees are women - H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha, and Jorja Smith.Five of the eight album of the year nominees are also women, including Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae, H.E.R., and Carlile. While the duo did secure three nominations including, Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Performance, and Best Music Video for "APESHIT", folks are big mad that they were not nominated in some of the major categories, specifically Album Of The Year. Yet, there she is, just behind Lamar and Drake's seven nominations, with six nods, including record of the year, album of the year and song of the year.

Beyonce and Jay-Z, billed as The Carters, as well Ariana Grande, didn't earn any of the big nominations.

Tony Bennett and Diana Krall, both multiple Grammy winners, received a nomination for Love is Here to Stay, in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Chris Cornell, who died previous year, is up for best rock performance with "When Bad Does Good".

Pop star Justin Timberlake - who is no stranger to Grammys nominations and wins - received just one nomination in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category for his song "Say Something" with Chris Stapleton. Featuring Daniel Caesar, and First Began by PJ Morton.

Lamar has won 12 Grammys throughout his career.

Though Jay-Z was the most nominated artist at last year's Grammy Awards, with eight nods, he did not pick up a single trophy, prompting the rapper to perform the lyric "Tell the Grammys f**k that 0 for 8 s**t" on his track "APES**T". The 2019 Grammy Awards will be televised nationally at 7 p.m. February 10 on CBS.
