Rap star Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy nominations with 8

Kacey Musgraves

Drake, a Grammy veteran, also sits at the top of the list with seven nominations for his 2018 album, Scorpion.

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 B, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae, H.E.R. and Brandi Carlile also are up for the top prize, along with Drake and Post Malone. 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.

"Everything Is Love" was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Tony Bennett and Diana Krall, both multiple Grammy winners, received a nomination for Love is Here to Stay, in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

The Carters ("Apesh*t"), Childish Gambino ("This Is America"), and Joyner Lucas ("I'm Not Racist") were nominated for Best Music Video. Six women are nominated for Best New Artist while five women are up for Album, Record, and Song of the Year. Songwriter Geoffrey Warburton, who also hails from Pickering, shares the In My Blood song nomination with Mendes. Boi-1da, born Matthew Samuels in Toronto, was nominated as producer for his body of work this year, which includes songs with Drake, Cardi B, G-Eazy, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

- Best pop solo performance: "Colors", Beck; "Havana (Live)", Camila Cabello; "God Is A Woman", Ariana Grande; "Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?)", Lady Gaga; "Better Now", Post Malone. Both of those songs went viral and also went two and three times platinum.

Demi Lovato, who relapsed after six years of sobriety and was hospitalized for an overdose in July, earned a nomination for best pop duo/group performance for "Fall In Line", her duet with Christina Aguilera.

Notably, on 2014 Forest Hills Drive, a Grammy-nominated album, the MC/producer took a swing at the awards for a trend he did not like.

Lamar has won 12 Grammys throughout his career.
