Rap star Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy nominations with 8

Cardi B Drake and Childish Gambino all scored multiple 2019 Grammy Award nominations

(Keep in mind that the eligibility period for submissions was October 1, 2017-September 30, 2018.) This year, Cardi B is holding it down in five categories while Kendrick Lamar reigns supreme with eight nominations followed by Drake with seven to his name.

Though Jay-Z was the most nominated artist at last year's Grammy Awards, with eight nods, he did not pick up a single trophy, prompting the rapper to perform the lyric "Tell the Grammys f**k that 0 for 8 s**t" on his track "APES**T". Most notably, Scorpion was nominated for Album Of The Year, while "God's Plan" was nominated for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.

While male acts dominated the nominations in the main categories last year, five of this year's best album nominees are women, with Cardi B, Brandi Carlile, HER, Janelle Monae and Kacey Musgraves competing against Drake, Post Malone and the Black Panther soundtrack.

Tony Bennett and Diana Krall, both multiple Grammy winners, received a nomination for Love is Here to Stay, in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

The 61st Grammy Awards nominations announcement will be taking place on Friday and you can catch all the action live right here. Of the eight best new artist nominees, six are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. The nomination kept rock artists from being completely shut out in the major categories. R&B legend Toni Braxton walked away with three nods, including Best R&B Performance, Best R&B, Song and Best R&B Album for Sex and Cigarettes.

The Carters ("Apesh*t"), Childish Gambino ("This Is America"), and Joyner Lucas ("I'm Not Racist") were nominated for Best Music Video. Plus, Boi-1da, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams were listed in the Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical category. It was the only nomination Timberlake received this year in relation to his album "Man of the Woods", which was released in February.

In other categories, Toronto's Daniel Caesar appeared in the R&B performance category for the second consecutive year, this time for the song Best Part, a duet with California-based singer H.E.R.

Demi Lovato, who relapsed after six years of sobriety and was hospitalized for an overdose in July, earned a nomination for best pop duo/group performance for "Fall In Line", her duet with Christina Aguilera.

Other famous faces outside of music to earn nominations include Tiffany Haddish and former USA president Jimmy Carter, both up for best spoken word album.
