The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Nominations

Written by on November 24, 2020

The 63rd GRAMMY Awards are happening on January 31st. And in the present day, the Recording Academy have introduced this yr’s nominations.

2020 has, in a nutshell, been one lengthy monkey wrench thrown into the combo of every thing. So, why not be thrown into the annual award present, too?

Beyoncé leads all with 9 nods, whereas Roddy Ricch secured six and Jay-Z has formally tied Quincy Jones with 80 for his half on Jay Electronica‘s A Written Testimony–which is up for Finest Rap Album.

There’s just a few surprises, as nicely.

To begin, The Weeknd acquired zero nominations for After Hours— one of many yr’s top-selling albums. Whether or not that is by selection (bear in mind, just a few years again, when Frank Ocean didn’t submit his albums for consideration) or likelihood stays to be seen, although.

The Finest Rap Album class (to not be confused with Finest Rap Track, Rap Efficiency and Melodic Rap Efficiency… which is simply.. muddy) is, fairly probably, the craziest one among all: Jay Electronica and Jay-Z (A Written Testimony), Freddie Gibbs and Alchemist (Alfredo), Nas and Hit-Boy (King’s Disease), Royce 5’9″ (The Allegory) and D Smoke (Black Habits).

Clearly, there are many snubs. And, to be sincere, we’ve been off placing a lot cease in these awards. However nonetheless, folks care, so right here’s the complete record…
