Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, & H.E.R. Lead Grammy Nominations

The nominees for the 64th annual Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday.

Jon Batiste leads with 11 nominations, while Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, and H.E.R. earn the second-most nominations with eight. Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo follow with seven nods.

Bieber is up for Album of the Year for Justice (Triple Chucks Deluxe), along with Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Peaches” with Daniel Caesar and Giveon.

The Record of the Year category also includes Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More” with SZA and Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open,” along with Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).”

In the Best Rap Album category, nominees include J. Cole’s The Off-Season, Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, Nas’ King’s Disease II, Tyler, the Creator’s Call Me If You Get Lost, and Kanye West’s Donda.

Kanye scores four nods including Album of the Year and Best Rap Album for Donda, while J. Cole sweeps the rap categories with four nominations. Baby Keem, Saweetie, Snoh Aalegra, and YoungBoy Never Broke Again are all nominated for the first time.

Despite The Weeknd’s Grammy boycott, he still earns three nominations for Doja Cat’s Planet Her (Deluxe) and Kanye’s Donda, as well as for Kanye’s “Hurricane.”

JAY-Z, who picks up three nominations this year, makes history, becoming the most-nominated artist of all time with 83 nominations, surpassing Quincy Jones.

For the first time in 30 years, nominations are decided solely by the voting membership after the elimination of the controversial secret committees. There are also now 10 nominees instead of eight in the general field categories including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year.

The 64th annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Jan. 31.
