Good morning to Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and the rest of the Knowles-Carters. The 65th annual Grammy Award nominations were announced by Olivia Rodrigo, Jimmie Allen, Cyndi Lauper, Smokey Robinson, Luis Fonsi, Machine Gun Kelly, and more November 15. The Beyhive will have much fodder to lord over the heads of the Swifties in the coming months. Beyoncé claimed the most nominations with nine, including nods in all three major categories: an Album of the Year nomination for Renaissance and Record and Song of the Year nominations for “Break My Soul.” This year’s total makes Queen Bey tied with her husband, Jay-Z, for the most-nominated artist in Grammys history with 88 nominations (yet she’s only won in a major category once. Hmmm, much to consider). Jay-Z received five nods this year for his work on Renaissance and DJ Khaled’s song “God Did.”

Kendrick Lamar follows Bey with eight nominations for Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers and its accompanying single “The Heart Part 5.” Next, there’s Adele, with the combo of 30 and “Easy On Me,” and Brandi Carlile, with In These Silent Days and “You and Me on the Rock,” both of whom got seven noms. Harry Styles, DJ Khaled, and Mary J. Blige tie for six for their work on Harry’s House, “God Did,” and Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe), respectively. Also with six is Randy Merrill, a producer who worked on 30 and Harry’s House. Last but not least is Future, who received six nominations for his album I Never Liked You and its singles as well as for “pushin P,” a collaboration with Gunna and Young Thug, both of whom have now received nominations from jail. Entretanto, Bad Bunny has also made history as Un Verano Sin Ti is the first album from the Latin field to score an Album of the Year nomination. Below, notable nominees for the 2023 Grammy Awards taking place live February 5.
