Grammy Nominees Announced: Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars Lead the Way

The 60th Grammy Awards are going to be held in January in New York City. Rapper Jay-Z is up for 8 awards

In total, Jay-Z has eight nominations, Lamar has seven, Mars comes in with six, and Childish Gambino - who is actor Donald Glover of the hit television show "Atlanta" - Khalid, SZA, as well as Jay-Z's producer No I.D each have five nominations this year.

The Kendrick Lamar song"HUMBLE. has been nominated for Record of the Year

More Life, which reached number one in the U.S. and number two in the United Kingdom album charts, was missed off the list after a source close to the nomination process said he did not submit the record for Album of the Year or Best Rap Album. Compare this to the previous year, which including such baffling nominations as Twenty One Pilots and Lukas Graham. It's been 14 years since Outkast took home the award for Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. Little Big Town earned mentions for Best Country Song, Best Country Album (The Breaker) and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for "Better Man". Even though black artists make music that's actually more popular than what's in the "pop" categories, they don't usually win in the big name categories like Album of the Year or Record of the Year. Despite having been nominated for 11 Grammys and winning two, Ed Sheeran only appears in the Best Pop Solo Performance category for "Shape Of You". Kesha's stunning comeback album was a narrative throughout the entire summer, while Styles's debut solo album marked one of the best pop albums of the year. See the full list on the Grammys website.

Meanwhile this year, Jay-Z is the leader of the pack, as he gained the most nominations for the 2018 Grammys.

Civilization 6 Expansion Braces for 'Rise and Fall'
If you escape from a Dark Age is especially successful, you will enter a Heroic Age, a stronger version of a Golden Age. Rise and Fall brings new choices, strategies, and challenges for players as they guide a civilization through the ages.

Drake has previously been nominated 33 times at the Grammys, and has won three times: Best Rap song for Hotline Bling, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for Hotline Bling, and Best Rap Album for Take Care. But don't put it past the Academy to award popularity as always and give it all to "Despacito" and Bruno Mars.
