SZA leads the Grammy nominations for women

The list is in for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, set to be held on 28 January 2018 and aired live from New York’s Madison Square Garden.

For 2018, SZA is the Grammys most nominated woman with five nods to her name. She’s been nominated for categories such as Best New Artist, Best R&B Performance and Best Urban Contemporary Album for her brilliant 2017 release Ctrl.

Making history for having the longest running number one for a woman rapper with the hit Bodak Yellow, 2017 has been a triumph for Cardi B. The hitmaker has been given two nods for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

Jay Z leads the nominations with eight for 2018, followed by Kendrick Lamar with seven; and Tyler, the Creator acknowledged his nomination for Best Rap Album with a tweet saying, “cool beans”.
