Beyonce Makes History, Equals Jay Z’s Grammy Nominations
Beyonce is the most successful female artist in the history of the award.
Global music act, Beyonce, made history after bagging nine nominations in the 2023 edition of the Grammy Awards, equaling her husband, Jay Z’s record of artist with most Grammy nomination of 88.
Beyonce’s nine awards nominations saw her lead this year’s list of nominated artist as the “Irreplaceable’’ crooner gears up for a showdown with Adele, Kendrick Lamar, Harry Styles, and other top acts.
Kendrick Lamar who got eight nominations trails Beyonce in the list of nominations, while Adele and high profile singer-songwriter, Carlile, got seven nominations each.
Beyonce’s “Renaissance’’ album will compete against Adele’s “30,’’ Harry Styles’ “Harry House,’’ Lizzo’s “Special,’’ Kendrick Lamar’s “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,’’ and entries from Mary J. Blige, Coldplay, Brandi Carlie, Bad Bunny, and ABBA, for the album of the year prize.
It will be recalled that Adele beat Beyonce to the album of the year prize in 2017, but said she felt Beyonce’s “Lemonade,’’ album should have won the award. Despite being the female artist with most Grammy wins (28), Beyonce has never won the album of the year award.
Georg Solti’s holds the record for most Grammy Awards win with 31 overall prizes.
The 2023 Grammy Awards ceremony which will hold on February 5, 2023 in downtown Los Angeles will also see Beyonce’s “Break My Soul’’ single compete against Adele’s “Easy on Me,’’ for the record and song of the year category. The 10-minute version of Taylor Swift’s 2012 song “All Too Well,’’ also got nominated for the best song.
Brazilian singer, Anitta, America’s singer-songwriter, Molly Tuttle, and Italian rock band. Maneskin, will square-off for the best new artist category in the 65th edition of the Grammy Awards which will be aired live on US broadcast network, CBS, and streamed on Paramount+.
Winners will be selected by almost 13,000 musicians, producers, and songwriters that are part of the Recording Academy.
