Kendrick Lamar Received The Most 2019 Grammy Nominations

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

Besides Carlile, the record of the year nominees included Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin ("I Like It"); Drake ("God's Plan"); Childish Gambino ("This is America"); Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ("Shallow"); Lamar and SZA ("All the Stars"); Post Malone ("Rockstar"); and Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey ("The Middle"). That's great, but it's also notable that DAMN, which was one of the year's biggest albums in terms of both critical and fan reception, wasn't nominated for Record Of The Year or Album Of The Year.

Women performers also made their mark in the top categories after being largely snubbed a year ago, with rapper Cardi B, pop diva Lady Gaga and folk-rock singer Brandi Carlile all nabbing key nominations for music's top awards.

Barbra Streisand's THE MUSIC.THE MEM'RIES.THE MAGIC! is nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

The move did appear to have a positive effect for female artists, with five of the Album of the Year nominees going to women: Cardi B, Carlile, R&B singer Janelle Monae, R&B prodigy H.E.R. and country songstress Kacey Musgraves.

Following Lamar, Drake - the year's most successful artist - earned seven nominations.


Brandon, Man. -raised violinist James Ehnes is nominated for classical instrumental solo for his concerto Kernis, while Toronto-born conductor Peter Oundjian also received a nod for classical compendium.

But the nominations also resulted in snubs for some of the music industry's biggest stars, such as Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake, among others.

"Everything Is Love" was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Camila Cabello, Malone, Mendes, Dan + Shay and DJ Mustard are also first-time nominees.

Miller's album was nominated for Best Rap Album. Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Fred Armisen, Jim Gaffigan and Patton Oswalt are up for best comedy album. Tack on Cardi's nomination alongside Maroon 5 for "Girls Like You" for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance bring her total nominations this year to five. Chris Cornell, who died past year, is up for best rock performance with "When Bad Does Good". Her latest album was only nominated for one award, best pop vocal album.

Lamar has won 12 Grammys throughout his career. While both artists have done well in the past on their own - Beyonce with 22 wins to-date and Jay Z follows just behind with 21 - the couple didn't receive any nominations in the main categories this year, such as Album Of The Year or Song Of The Year. The 2019 Grammy Awards will be televised nationally at 7 p.m. February 10 on CBS.
