Kendrick Lamar Leads The Pack For 2019 Grammy Award Nominations

That's because her two Grammy nods previous year disqualify her from a best new artist award.

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

In the Best Jazz Instrumental Album category, Wayne Shorter received his 21st Grammy nomination, for Emanon. Five of the eight album of the year nominees are women, including Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae, H.E.R. and Carlile.

At the 2018 Grammys, Kendrick Lamar walked away with five trophies.

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.

Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up" and Shawn Mendes' "In My Blood" earned song of the year nods, while Post Malone's "Rockstar" and Cardi B's "I Like It", featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin, round out the nominees for record of the year.

Drake is trailing just behind, with seven nominations.

Carlile - a folk-rock singer known for her bluesy, dynamic voice - earned six nominations, including three across the major categories.

But the big news is the high number of women nominees, after being largely left out previous year.

After that show the academy expanded the four big categories from five nominees to eight, while also creating a diversity task force responding to criticism that the show was consistently too male and too white. Cardi's "I Like It" gained a Record of the Year nod. Some people believe that he isn't talented and simply just says his songs, while others think his music is only for his Canadian supporters who would love him no matter what.

"This year clearly there were many women not only making music but making great music and making music that resonates with our peer voters in terms of excellence, and so that certainly is at the forefront".

The American artiste was announced as the top contender with eight nominations, including seven for his musical composition for the Marvel Studio's Black Panther. Boi-1da is contending for the Producer of the Year, Non-Classical award.

Colleyville-bred Demi Lovato received one nomination, for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Fall in Line", a collaboration with Christina Aguilera.

"[.] I didn't even drop an album", she added.

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.

Several of Drake's associates also landed Grammy recognition.

It's been a tough week for Cardi B following her split from husband Offset, but the Grammys 2019 nominations have given her something to celebrate.
