"I Like It" is also nominated for Record Of The Year, "Be Careful" received a nod for Best Rap Performance and Invasion Of Privacy is up for Best Rap Album this year.

Women performers also achieved far greater presence in the 2019 edition of the top music awards, with Cardi B, Lady Gaga and folk-rock singer Brandi Carlile all nabbing nominations across the top categories.

Cardi's triumph will no doubt be a slap in the face for her rap rival Nicki Minaj, who failed to receive a single nomination despite releasing her latest album Queen in September. Instead, country singer Kacey Musgraves beat him to the punch with a nomination for album of the year. Fellow Black Panther song "King's Dead" was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Rap Song. Drake was the most streamed artist on Spotify and Apple Music in 2018 and "Scorpion" has dominated the Billboard charts since it came out this past summer.

The 2019 GRAMMYs are just around the corner, and now the nominations are in for the coveted honor of Album Of The Year.

Nominations for the 61st annual Grammy Awards will be announced Friday morning. Her "Reputation" album is up for best pop vocal album. The other two nominations went to Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey for The Middle and The Joke from Brandi Carlile. J. Cole - "Pretty Little Fears" Childish Gambino - "This Is America" Kendrick Lamar & SZA - "All the Stars" Post Malone ft. I remember Nicki won every around for like 8 years and now'.

- Best new artist: Chloe x Halle; Luke Combs; Greta Van Fleet; H.E.R.; Dua Lipa; Margo Price; Bebe Rexha; Jorja Smith.
