Rap star Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy nominations with 8

Rap star Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy nominations with 8

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. Yet, there she is, just behind Lamar and Drake's seven nominations, with six nods, including record of the year, album of the year and song of the year.

Other nominated solos are by violinist Regina Carter, on the title track of Karrin Allyson's Some Of That Sunshine; trumpeter John Daversa, on "Don't Fence Me In", from his big band album American Dreamers: Voices Of Hope, Music Of Freedom; and Zenón, for "Cadenas", from Yo Soy La Tradición, which is also a nominee for Best Latin Jazz Album.

The 2019 Grammys will hand out awards in its 84 categories live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10, 2019.

Who's Presenting?: Last year's Best New Artist victor, Alessia Cara, will join Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monae and Apple Music host Zane Lowe to announce the nominees in select categories. Though nominated for album of the year, he was surprisingly shut out of best rap album, where his rival Pusha T earned a nomination. Another notable omission from the top categories was singer Ariana Grande, whose "Sweetener" album is shaping up as one of the year's biggest commercial successes.

One of the nominees is Greta Van Fleet, whose debut album, "Anthem of the Peaceful Army", was released too late for Grammy consideration, though the MI band had played festivals - including Lollapalooza in Grant Park - on the back of a pair of 2017 EP's and a major-label marketing push.

Beyonce is the most nominated female artist in Grammy history with a total of 66 nods and 22 wins.

Mika Singh released, will be produced before UAE court: Envoy
Bollywood singer Mika Singh has been arrested by Dubai police for alleged sexual misconduct, reported Republic TV on Thursday. One can not forget the famous controversy of 2004 where Rakhi Sawant claimed he forcibly kissed her at her birthday party.

The Carter's new album, Everything Is Love, will be competing for Best Urban Contemporary Album against The Kids Are Alright by Chloe x Halle, Chris Dave And The Drumhedz by Chris Dave And The Drumhedz, War & Leisure by Miguel, and Ventriloquism by Meshell Ndegeocello.

Besides Carlile, the record of the year nominees included Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin ("I Like It"); Drake ("God's Plan"); Childish Gambino ("This is America"); Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ("Shallow"); Lamar and SZA ("All the Stars"); Post Malone ("Rockstar"); and Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey ("The Middle"). Demi Lovato - "Fall In Line" Backstreet Boys - "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper - "Shallow" Maroon 5 ft. Lastly, their song "Apes***" also received a nomination for Best Music Video.

In other categories, Toronto's Daniel Caesar appeared in the R&B performance category for the second consecutive year, this time for the song Best Part, a duet with California-based singer H.E.R.

Miller's album was nominated for Best Rap Album.

Buddy Guy was nominated for best traditional blues album for "The Blues Is Alive and Well". Monáe, herself snagged an Album Of The Year nomination for her most recent project, Dirty Computer.
