The most-nominated female artist in Grammy history is set for another big year. Beyoncé snagged nine nods on Tuesday morning as part of the Recording Academy’s upcoming 2021 lineup. Her nominations include one for Song of the Year, two for Record of the Year, and recognition in down-ballot categories such as Best R&B Performance and Best Rap Song. The pop star did not release an album in 2020 but her presence was still felt, with her one-off single from the feature-length Black Is King on Disney+, “Black Parade.”
Taylor Swift is also up for a big night with six nominations of her own, including a nod for Album of the Year for her surprise 2020 record Folklore, as well as Song of the Year for “Cardigan.” Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia is recognized in Album of the Year.
Billie Eilish, who swept the 2020 ceremony with wins in the top four categories, received four nominations, including Record and Song of the Year for “Everything I Wanted.”
