Instead, country singer Kacey Musgraves beat him to the punch with a nomination for album of the year. 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. Lamar was nominated for the Black Panther album compilation he executive produced for the blockbuster film.

Pianists Fred Hersch and Brad Mehldau, saxophonists Tia Fuller and Miguel Zenón, and vocalists Gregory Porter and Cécile McLorin Salvant are among the nominees for the 61st Grammy Awards.

Notably excluded from the top categories was Swift, who had dominated the Grammys for years. First among them is Bronx based artist, Cardi B. Cardi is the only woman nominated in the rap categories, with social media now adding more fuel to the fire surrounding the highly publicized feud between her and Nicki Minaj. She has garnered 10 awards and is the only woman to win album of the year twice. If a best new artist nomination can be categorized as "long overdue", Price qualifies. She will go up against fellow nominees Cardi B and Janelle Monae in the Album of the Year category.

Ella Mai was also nominated in the Song of the Year category for her heavily rotated hit "Boo'd Up".

Love Island winners Jack and Dani split

The Recording Academy considered recordings released between October 1, 2017, and September 30, 2018. Carlile may be the biggest surprise, with her nominations in three major categories including album of the year as well as song and record of the year ("The Joke").

Six of the 2019 nominees for Best New Artist are women, whose presence in the top categories marked a sharp departure from the previous gala, which saw women snubbed in the major prizes.

The awards ceremony will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Grammy Academy announced 900 additional members to the voting committee as a second step in its diversity efforts.

Best New Artist Grammy victor and Ontario-born Alessia Cara, fellow Canadian-born singer Shawn Mendes, past nominee and Apple Music host Zane Lowe, and former nominee Janelle Monae will kick off the 2019 ceremony by revealing the nods live on "CBS This Morning" and Apple Music.
