2023 Grammy Awards Nominations: See List of Music Contenders – National

Some of the biggest names in the music industry are among the nominees for the 2023 Grammy Awards. From Beyoncé to Harry Styles, some of the world’s most beloved musicians were recognized at Tuesday’s nominations.

Beyoncé led the pack this year with nine nominations, including eight for her album Restoration. With these nominations, Beyoncé is now tied with her husband Jay-Z for the most nominations by any artist.

Kendrick Lamar followed closely behind with eight nominations.

British singer Adele was also honored with seven nominations. The next Grammy Awards will be reminiscent of the 2017 awards show, when Adele’s 25 knock out Beyoncé Lemonade for album of the year.

This year, the Grammy Awards introduced five new categories, including Songwriter of the Year and a special award for Best Song for Social Change.

A non-classical songwriter category will recognize one person who was the “most prolific” songwriter who didn’t appear and produce a ton of new work. It will take a different approach to Song of the Year, which rewards the songwriters who wrote the lyrics or melodies to a song.

The Best Song for Social Change award will recognize music with lyrics that address a timely social issue or vulnerable community and raise awareness, raise awareness and build empathy.

Despite the Grammys’ efforts to seem more in tune with the times, several rap and R&B artists have once again had their albums rejected for consideration. Canadian musicians Drake and The Weeknd both maintained their solo projects – Drake’s Honestly, no matter and The Weeknd’s Dawn FM — from the nomination ballot. (Drake, however, received three nominations for his performance on various songs.)

In 2020, The Weeknd angrily criticized the Grammy Awards, calling them “corrupt” after he received no nominations despite having the biggest single of 2020, Blinding light. That same year, Drake argued that the “relationship” between the Grammys and popular music was making the awards irrelevant.

“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be offended every year by the relationship between influential music and these awards and accept that what was once the highest form of recognition may no longer be relevant to the artist who exists now and then which follow. he said.
