2019 GRAMMY Award Nominations Announced

Kendrick leads the way again.

As we’re getting close to wrapping up the year and everyone tries to figure out what their top albums of the year were, the GRAMMYs announce their nominations for the 2019 awards.

The awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10th and will air on CBS. This year the main categories (Album of the Year, Record of the Year, etc.) will have eight nominations instead of five.

Let’s hope that Hip-Hop is better represented this time around, but this writer feels like the GRAMMYs already messed up. As you take a look at the Rap Album of the Year category below you’ll notice Jay Rock’s Redemption album is nowhere to be found.

Kendrick Lamar managed to tally up the most nominations with a total of eight, followed by Drake’s seven. Peep the nominations below.
