What we know so far

On Friday morning, the Recording Academy, with the help of Alessia Cara, Janelle Monae and Shawn Mendes, announced nominations for the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, spanning every genre of music over a whopping 84 categories.

This marks the first time the top four categories — album of the year, record of the year, of the year and new artist of the year – will expand to eighth slots.

Kendrick Lamar and Drake lead the pack with eight and seven nods, respectively.

Taylor Swift, a long-time Grammy fave with two album of the year wins under her belt, misses the Big 4 entirely, with reputation only getting a nod for best pop vocal album.

Also in the pop snub realm, Ariana Grande was ignored in the Big 4 categories. Again, not a total shock considering the Grammys haven’t exactly favored her in the past – before the 2019 nominees were revealed, she had 4 noms and 0 wins.

If you want to snub two A-listers with one oversight, well, just fail to put The Carters (aka Beyonce and Jay-Z) in any of the Big 4 categories. While the couple did get three noms overall, it’s a bit of a surprise to see the acclaimed Everything Is Love get no love in record of the year or album of the year.

Perhaps less surprising, but still worth noting, is that Kanye West just received one nod.
