Beyoncé leads the pack of nominees with nine, according to the Recording Academy’s list of 2023 Grammy Award nominees. With this, she equals Jay-career Z’s record of 88 nominations for artists overall and becomes the most nominated female artist in history.

The Grammy Awards for Best Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year are among the categories in which her album “Renaissance” is nominated. Beyoncé has won 28 Grammys throughout her career, but she has never taken home the prize for Album of the Year, which is regarded as the most significant.

She would surpass the current record of 31, held by conductor George Solti, if “Renaissance” wins four of the nine Grammys it is vying for. Quincy Jones and Beyoncé are presently tied for second place.

Kendrick Lamar, who has eight nominations and is also vying for the three aforementioned awards, is in second place after her. The top three categories (Record, Album, and Song of the Year) each have ten nominations, while the remaining categories only have five.

Who nominates albums for year’s best?
Abba, Brandi Carlile, Steve Lacy, Harry Styles, Lizzo, Doja Cat, Mary J. Blige, and Adele, who received seven nominations, are the competitors in the Album of the Year category. Carlile’s seven tied her.

Beyoncé was beaten by Adele for Album of the Year at the 2017 Grammy Awards, and she honoured her in her speech of acceptance. Adele remarked on stage, “My life is Beyoncé, and the album for me, the Lemonade album, Beyoncé, was so significant, and so well thought out. I can’t take this award, and I’m really humbled and very grateful and thankful.
