Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B & Drake Lead the 2019 Grammy Nominations

Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B & Drake Lead the 2019 Grammy Nominations

21 Savage - "Rockstar" Best Rap SongDrake - "God's Plan" Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future, & James Blake - "King's Dead" Eminem - "Lucky You" Travis Scott, Drake, Big Hawk, & Swae Lee - "Sicko Mode" Jay Rock ft. But Swift was snubbed this year, earning just one nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album for her 2017 album "Reputation" - narrowing her chances for another win.

Rapper Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys and the soundtrack to hit movie Black Panther, which was produced by Lamar, round out the album of the year field. Although he was nominated for album of the year, surprisingly, he did not win a place in the best rap album competition.

Cardi B's debut album, Invasion of Privacy, got a nod, as did Drake's massively successful new offering, Scorpion, and the Black Panther soundtrack, with original songs produced by Kendrick Lamar.

Musgraves received six nominations including album of the year for Golden Hour. Five other songs scored nominations in both categories, including Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's Shallow from the film A Star Is Born; Childish Gambino's This Is America; and Drake's God's Plan.

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

Buzzcocks co-founder Pete Shelley dies at 63
His music inspired generations of musicians over a five-decade career with his band and as a solo artist, they said. Pete Shelley , lead singer of punk rock band Buzzcocks , has died at 63 of a suspected heart attack.

Another milestone for women is in the non-classical producer of the year category, where songwriting extraordinaire Linda Perry earned a nomination. Monáe, herself snagged an Album Of The Year nomination for her most recent project, Dirty Computer. Beyoncé had to make do with just three, all of which she shared with husband Jay-Z - music video "Apes-t", R&B performance "Summer" and urban contemporary album Everything is Love. Whether people want to admit or not, Hip-Hop IS popular music and we should hope that the coveted Grammy awards recognize this, which means a lot of our artists should take home some mini-gold phonographs for their mantles.

Cardi B, Lady Gaga, HER, Maren Morris, Childish Gambino, producer Sounwave and engineer Mike Bozzi all have five nominations each.

Jim (Kimo) West, who was born in Toronto and is known as Weird Al Yankovic's guitarist, is nominated for Moku Maluhia - Peaceful Island in the new age album category.

Other famous faces outside of music to earn nominations include Tiffany Haddish and former United States president Jimmy Carter, both up for best spoken word album. But the rapper, who has received 24 nominations to-date, did not receive any nominations this year.

The 2019 Grammys will hand out awards in its 84 categories live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on 10 February.
