  • Rapper Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy award nominations with 8 nods, Drake has 7

The soundtrack of Marvel's "Black Panther" propelled rap superstar Kendrick Lamar to the front of this year's Grammy pack with eight nominations, closely followed by fellow rapper Drake who scored seven, organizers said Friday. Samuels also received two nominations in the best rap song category as a songwriter on Eminem's Lucky You and Jay Rock's Win. For Best Rap Performance, the nominees are "Be Careful" by Cardi B, "Sicko Mode" by Travis Scott, Drake, Big Hawk & Swae Lee, "Nice For What" by Drake, "King's Dead" by Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future & James Blake, and "Bubblin" by Anderson.Paak.

Five of the eight acts nominated for Best Album at the 2019 awards are women with H.E.R., Brandi Carlisle, Kacey Musgraves, and Janelle Monáe competing alongside the Black Panther soundtrack and Drake's Scorpion plus Post Malone's beerbongs & bentleys.

Grande, who has never won a Grammy, was only nominated for best pop vocal album for "Sweetener" and best pop solo performance for "God is a Woman".

Awards season is soon to be on the horizon, and now that nominations for the 61st annual Grammy Awards have finally arrived, the industry is about to be flooded with non-stop campaigning. Of the eight best new artist nominees, six are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

But last year's Grammy snub of bilingual mega-hit "Despacito" in the Record of the Year and Song of the Year categories has critics skeptical that a non-English track, no matter how popular, can score a major award.

Some Hip Hop artists were also nominated in the R&B categories. R&B legend Toni Braxton walked away with three nods, including Best R&B Performance, Best R&B, Song and Best R&B Album for Sex and Cigarettes.

The Carters ("Apesh*t"), Childish Gambino ("This Is America"), and Joyner Lucas ("I'm Not Racist") were nominated for Best Music Video.

His song "All the Stars" is also in the running for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year. But her chart-topping 2017 album, "Reputation", was snubbed other than a nomination for best pop vocal album.

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. His album "Ye" did not receive any nods.

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.
