GRAMMYs 2019: Listen to All of the Album of the Year Nominees

2019 Grammy Awards

2019 Grammy Awards

It's doubtful that Cardi B is complaining, though, considering she is nominated for five awards, including record of the year and album of the year.

A possible factor in the increase in female representation was the Recording Academy's decision to expand the shortlists from five to eight in the big-four categories: best album, song, record and new artist.

Just behind Lamar in number of nominations is Drake, who earned seven. His #1 smash "God's Plan" was nominated for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.

The Recording Academy shared the full list on their website, Grammy.

Musgraves received six nominations including album of the year for Golden Hour.

It named Lamar eight times, including seven nominations for Black Panther: The Album, Music From and Inspired By. However, like every other year, there are still some surprises, as well as major snubs.

To be sure, Post Malone has a talent for hit-making. Brandi Carlile, Cardi B, H.E.R., Post Malone, Janelle Monáe and Kacey Musgraves joined the hip-hop stars in the album of the year category.

- Best urban contemporary album: "Everything Is Love", The Carters (Beyonce and Jay-Z); "The Kids Are Alright", Chloe x Halle; "Chris Dave and the Drumhedz", Chris Dave And The Drumhedz; "War & Leisure", Miguel; "Ventriloquism", Meshell Ndegeocello. The OVO superstar's Scorpion is also in the Album Of The Year race.

Why Roger Goodell is an even bigger liar than Kareem Hunt
Hunt's punishment could come even though he may not face charges from either incident. "It's no excuse for me to act that way". And when I saw the video, I realized what I did.

After being almost muted at this year's ceremony, the 2019 Grammys are shaping up to be the year of the woman, with powerful female voices representing the majority in two of the top categories. As well, Drake collaborators Boi-1da and Noah Shebib were nominated for their production work.

"Dirty Computer", Monae's third full-length album, features the singer and guitarist working behind-the-scenes to craft the right songs and style: "I did produce and engineer a lot of this record".

Taylor Swift, a two-time album of the year victor, also only earned one nomination.

Gaga, who earned acting and music Golden Globe nominations on Thursday, picked up four Grammy nominations for "Shallow", while "Joanne" is up for best pop solo performance.

After the nominations were announced, stars began reacting to the honor on social media, with many using various platforms to share their excitement.

Margo Price, who was nominated for Best New Artist, tweeted that she woke up to her "phone blowing up".

Lamar has won 12 Grammys throughout his career.

The 2018 Grammys will take place on February 10th in Los Angeles at the Staples Center.
