Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Cardi B, H.E.R., and Childish Gambino earn Grammy nominations + full list

 

The 2019 Grammy nominations are finally here after being pushed back for President George H.W. Bush’s funeral.

On Friday, Apple Music host Zane Lowe, Janelle Monae, Shawn Mendes, and last year’s Best New Artist winner, Alessia Cara announced the contenders in several categories before the complete list of nominees was released shortly after.

It looks like another big year for hip-hop thanks to Kendrick Lamar leading the pack with eight nominations, followed closely by Drake who scored seven nods. Cardi B, Childish Gambino, and H.E.R. each garnered five nominations.

There are a lot more women on the list this year after the 2018 ceremony drew criticism for being dominated by men.

The Top 4 Grammy categories (Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist will not be comprised of eight nominees each (instead of the usual five) and there’s plenty of #melaninmagic sprinkled across multiple categories.

The biggest treat is the fact that Black Panther has managed to dominate the music world. The Marvel film that took over the box-office also made a major dent in the music game with “All The Stars” being nominated for Song of The Year, Record of The Year, Best Rap/Sung Performance, and Best Song Written for Digital Media.

The Album of The Year category boasts some serious competition for its contenders who include Cardi B, Drake, H.E.R., Janelle Monae, and the Black Panther soundtrack.

Cardi B made a major showing with five nominations including one for Record of the Year for her song”I Like It” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin. Her debut album Invasion of Privacy earned a nod for Album of the Year, and another for Best Rap Album, but she didn’t make the list of newbies vying for Best New Artist. She did get a Grammy nod for Best Rap Performance for her hit “Be Careful.”

The Carters scored three nominations proving Beyonce and Jay-Z are just as appealing as a duo than they are as separate artists. They’re up for Best R&B Performance for “Summer” and Best Music Video for “Apes*it” while their album, Everything Is Love is nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

The 61st annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10.
