Beyonce Leads 2021 Grammy Nominations


The 2021 Grammy nominations were announced yesterday (November 24th) and Beyonce scored the most nods with nine nominations. The superstar is up for Record of The Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song for “Black Parade.”

In addition, she is also nominated for Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl” and Best Music Film for Black Is King. To top it all off, “Savage,” the singer’s collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion is also up for Record of the Year, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

According to Billboard, this gives Beyonce seven career record of the year nods — and she is now tied with Frank Sinatra for the most record of the year nods in Grammy history. She is now the top female artist in this category. Beyonce is also the second artist to receive two record of the year nods in one year.

Taylor Swift snagged six nominations including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal album for Folklore. She also snagged her fifth Song of the Year nod for “Cardigan.” Meanwhile, Dua Lipa is up for Album of the Year for Future Nostalgia and her single “Don’t Start Now” is nominated for both record and song of the year.


Other nominees include Roddy Rich, who scored six nods, while Billie Eillish, Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby all snagged four nominations. Jay-Z received three nods and he is now officially tied with Quincy Jones for the artist with the most Grammy nods, with 80 nominations.

Surprisingly, The Weeknd was snubbed and didn't receive a single nomination for his album After Hours. The singer-songwriter reacted to the news on Twitter, writing, “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…”

The 2021 Grammy Awards, which will be hosted by Trevor Noah, is set to air on January 31st.
