57th Annual Grammy Awards Nominations Include Kendrick Lamar, Drake And More


The nominations for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards are slowly being unveiled today. While there are no nominations for Macklemore, Iggy Azalea is the lone rapper in the Record of the Year and Best New Artist categories. From what’s been released so far, Beyonce and Pharrell scored the most nods for their hits “Drunk In Love” and “Happy.”  Even though their highly-anticipated albums have not been released yet,  Kendrick Lamar and Drake both got spots in the Rap Performance category along with Eminem, Childish Gambino and Lecrae. Jhene Aiko’s debut album, Sail Out, earned a spot in the Urban Contemporary Album category but she has some tough competition.

The Grammys will air on Feb. 8th. Peep a handful of the nominations below.
