Cardi B, Lady Gaga, HER, Maren Morris, Childish Gambino, producer Sounwave and engineer Mike Bozzi all have five nominations each. Cole's KOD. While Jermaine Cole is recognized for collaborations with Miguel ("Best R&B Song" for "Come Through & Chill") and 6LACK ("Best Rap/Sung Performance" for "Pretty Little Fears"), there was no recognition for Cole's April LP, which did not go under any radars; the #1 Dreamville/Roc Nation/Interscope Records release broke an all-time streaming record upon dropping.
The 25-year-old has never won a Grammy or received a nomination in any of the biggest categories.
In the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album category, THE BAND'S VISIT, CAROUSEL, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR LIVE IN CONCERT, MY FAIR LADY, and ONCE ON THIS ISLAND have been nominated!
Taylor Swift, a two-time album of the year victor, also only earned one nomination.
But the Recording Academy continued its fraught relationship with Jay-Z and Beyoncé by shutting out their joint album "Everything is Love" from major categories. His album "Ye" did not receive any nods.
Gaga, who earned acting and music Golden Globe nominations on Thursday, picked up four Grammy nominations for "Shallow", while "Joanne" is up for best pop solo performance.
Her album Invasion of Privacy helped her nab five nominations for the upcoming ceremony and while her haters are up in arms, she was sticking her tongue out at them from the courthouse. Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Fred Armisen, Jim Gaffigan and Patton Oswalt are up for best comedy album.
- Best dance/electronic album: "Singularity", Jon Hopkins; "Woman Worldwide", Justice; "Treehouse", Sofi Tukker; "Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides", SOPHIE; "Lune Rouge", TOKiMONSTA. But the rapper, who has received 24 nominations to-date, did not receive any nominations this year.
Grammy Award-winning artist Kendrick Lamar and Billboard Magazine's Executive of the Year Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith curated and produced "Black Panther: The Album" with music from and inspired by the Marvel Studios film "Black Panther".
The 2019 Grammys will hand out awards in its 84 categories live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on 10 February.
