Beyoncé is the one to beat at the 63rd Grammy Awards, snagging an eye-popping nine nominations.
The singer is up for record of the year for “Black Parade” as well as “Savage,” her collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion. “Black Parade” also got a nod in the song of the year category. And “Brown Skin Girl” is in the contest for the best music video.
Beyoncé, who now has a lifetime 79 nominations and 24 wins, is the most-nominated female artist in Grammy history.
If she takes home four gilded gramophones at the 2021 awards show in January, she’ll become the female artist with the most Grammy wins. Eight trophies and she’ll make history as the performer with the most Grammy wins of all time.
Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch and Taylor Swift are behind Beyoncé with six nominations each.
Taylor Swift is up for album of the year for “Folklore” and song of the year for “Cardigan.” If she wins album of the year, Swift will become the first female solo artist to win that honour three times.
Also nominated for album of the year were “Chilombo” (Jhené Aiko), “Black Pumas” deluxe edition (Black Pumas), “Everyday Life” (Coldplay), “Djesse Vol. 3” (Jacob Collier), “Women In Music Pt. III” (Haim) and “Hollywood’s Bleeding” (Post Malone).
