This year's set of nominations do not reflect those of 12 months ago where no women were up for either Song Of The Year or Record Of The Year, though the two most nominated artists are male: Kendrick Lamar with eight nominations and Drake with seven. The singer has released seven well-received, musically eclectic albums but has never won a Grammy. But Swift was snubbed this year, earning just one nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album for her 2017 album "Reputation" - narrowing her chances for another win.

The soundtrack to the movie "Black Panther" received a nomination for Album Of The Year, making it just the thirteenth movie soundtrack to ever receive this nomination, People reported.

Then in June, it announced an expansion from five to eight of the 2019 nominee fields for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist.

The Carters did get nominations for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Performance and Best Music Video.

The rapper, 49, failed to win any of his eight Grammy nominations in 2018, but now Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce are up for three awards as The Carters.

For Best R&B Performance, the couple's song Summer will be competing against Long As I Live by Toni Braxton, Y O Y by Lalah Hathaway, Best Part by H.E.R.

At least Kanye West and Taylor Swift won't be dueling at this year's Grammy Awards. He's also nominated twice in the rap song category, where God's Plan and Sicko Mode are among the contenders for the award given to the songwriters. Minaj completely shut out this year after the release of her last album, Queen.

The leading nominees will face stiff competition on February 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles from fellow rappers Cardi B and Childish Gambino - as well as Lady Gaga, who snared nominations in both of those top categories for her hit "Shallow", performed with co-star Bradley Cooper in the film "A Star Is Born". Daniel Caesar)"PJ Morton - "First Bega" Best R&B SongElla Mai - "Boo'd Up" Miguel - "Come Through and Chill (ft".

Demi Lovato, who relapsed after six years of sobriety and was hospitalized for an overdose in July, earned a nomination for best pop duo/group performance for "Fall In Line", her duet with Christina Aguilera.

Miller's album was nominated for Best Rap Album. Justin Timberlake, whose "Man of the Woods" albums flopped earlier this year, picked up a nod for "Say Something", his collaboration with Chris Stapleton.

The cover is for her album "Restoration: Reimagining the Songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin".
