The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Nominations

0

The 63rd GRAMMY Awards will take place on January 31st. Now the Recording Academy has announced this year’s nominations. Beyoncé leads the way with nine noms, while Roddy Ricch follows with six nominations. This year Jay-Z also made history as he officially tied Quincy Jones with 80 nomination for his part on Jay Electronica‘s A Written Testimony, which was nominated for Best Rap Album.

You know the nominations can’t go without any controversy as The Weeknd was snubbed with zero nominations and many feel Lil Baby was snubbed by not being nominated for Best Rap Album for his popular album My Turn but it looks like they went pure hip hop this year as nominees for Best Rap Album nominees include Jay Electronica and Jay-Z (A Written Testimony), Freddie Gibbs and Alchemist (Alfredo), Nas and Hit-Boy (King’s Disease), Royce 5’9″ (The Allegory) and D Smoke (Black Habits). Teyana Taylor also had some smoke for the Best R&B Album nominations because no women were nominated.
