Kendrick Lamar, Drake & Cardi B Lead 2019 Grammy Nominations

Rapper Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy award nominations with 8 nods, Drake has 7

2019 GRAMMYs album of the year

If Lamar felt like he got snubbed past year, then he'll feel better about the 2019 Grammys, as he earned more nominations than anybody else, with eight total.

Stars have been tweeting about their excitement at being nominated, with Dua Lipa, who is also nominated for best dance recording, for Electricity (with Mark Ronson and Diplo as Silk City), writing: "TWO NOMINATIONS TWO GRAMMY NOMINATIONS IM SO HAPPY BUT I CANT STOP CRYING I CANT BELIEVE IT!"

Then in June, it announced an expansion from five to eight of the 2019 nominee fields for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist. J. Cole was also nominated for Best R&B Song, thanks to his contribution to Miguel's "Come Through And Chill".

The recognition for work on his 2018 double-album Scorpion, as well as contributions to other rappers' tracks, comes after the Toronto-raised performer boycotted last year's Grammys by choosing not to submit anything from his previous release, More Life.

Hip-hop dominated across the board for a second year running - though last year, rap mogul Jay-Z racked up the most nominations but left empty-handed, and Lamar was shut out of the general categories.

Another milestone for women is in the non-classical producer of the year category, where songwriting extraordinaire Linda Perry earned a nomination.

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.

The other rap categories have a wide range of choices as well.
