Kendrick Lamar Received The Most 2019 Grammy Nominations

Kendrick Lamar Received The Most 2019 Grammy Nominations

In the biggest snub, Swift, one of the world's most successful singers, was shut out of the major awards, getting just one nomination in the pop category for her best-selling album Reputation.

The likes of Drake, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae, Cardi B and Ariana Grande are all frontrunners for the 2019 Album of the Year category.

The Grammys is the first where the academy extended its top four categories from five nominees to eight. Lamar's "All the Stars" is up for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Five other songs scored nominations in both categories, including Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's Shallow from the film A Star Is Born; Childish Gambino's This Is America; and Drake's God's Plan. Her debut LP Invasion of Privacy was nominated for Album Of The Year and Best Rap Album.

Drake is right behind Kendrick with 7 nominations. Fellow Black Panther song "King's Dead" was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Rap Song.

Стали известны номинанты

Studio engineer Mike Bozzi (Black Panther: The Album, Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys) and Top Dawg Entertainment in-house producer Mark "Sounwave" Spears (Black Panther: The Album) were nominated five times each. Six of the eight nominees are female: H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. Rock band Greta Van Fleet and country singer Luke Combs also earned nominations.

As the New York Times notes, women also lead in some of the biggest categories this year; the awards show received criticism for a lack of diversity in the past.

While the project hits some very high points - "I Like It", for example, is perfectly at home in the "Record of the Year" category - it was inconsistent as a whole. Some people believe that he isn't talented and simply just says his songs, while others think his music is only for his Canadian supporters who would love him no matter what. One fan specifically put themselves out on the line saying he doesn't deserve the album of the year for "Scorpion".

Rapper Kanye West has received 69 Grammys nominations to-date, some of which were in coveted categories such as Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year. Their direct competitors are Gregory Porter, for Nat "King" Cole & Me, as well as Seal, Barbra Streisand and Willie Nelson, for albums largely featuring songbook standards. His album "Ye" did not receive any nods.
