It’s that time of year again when the Grammy Award nominations are revealed.
Leading the pack is singer, rapper and songwriter Lizzo, who has been nominated for eight prizes at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
The 31-year-old star has been recognized for her incredible success with a big presence on the shortlist for next year’s ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, including the best new artist and best urban contemporary album for the deluxe edition of Cuz I Love You.
The LP is also in the running for the prestigious record of the year gong, which will see Lizzo competing with the likes of Billie Eilish (“Bad Guy”), Khalid (“Talk”), Bon Iver (“Hey, Ma”) and Ariana Grande (“7 Rings”). Rounding off the nominees in that category are “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee; “Hard Place” by H.E.R.; and Lil Nas X and Billy Cyrus’ tune “Old Town Road.”
Lizzo’s hit single “Truth Hurts” has also earned her a lot of recognition, with nods in the record of the year, song of the year and best pop solo performance categories.
Her Gucci Mane collaboration, “Exactly How I Feel,” puts her in the running for best R&B performance, while “Jerome” is listed for the traditional R&B performance award.
Alicia Keys will be back to host the prestigious ceremony on January 26, making her the third woman and first female musician to host twice.
Elsewhere, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X have six nominations each, while Ariana Grande, Finneas O’Connell, and H.E.R. follow closely behind with five.
