Some of the music industry’s biggest names are among the nominees for the 2023 Grammy Awards. From Beyoncé to Harry Styles, several of the world’s most beloved musicians scored recognition during Tuesday’s nominations.

Beyoncé led the pack this year, scoring nine nominations, eight of which are for her album renaissance. With these nominations, Beyoncé is now tied with her de ella husband de ella Jay-Z for the most nominations received by any one artist.

Kendrick Lamar followed closely behind and received eight nominations.

British singer Adele was also honored with seven nominations. The upcoming Grammy Awards will be reminiscent of the 2017 award show, when Adele’s 25 beat out Beyonce’s lemonade for album of the year.

This year, the Grammy Awards introduced five new categories, including songwriter of the year and a special merit award for the best song for social change.

The non-classical songwriter category will recognize one individual who was the “most prolific” non-performing and non-producing songwriter for a body of new work. It will take a different approach than song of the year, which awards the songwriters who wrote the lyrics or melodies to one song.

The best song for social change award will recognize music with lyrics that address a timely social issue or vulnerable community and promotes awareness, raises consciousness and builds empathy.

Despite the Grammys’ attempt to seem more in tune with the times, several rap and R&B artists have again refused their albums for consideration. Canadian musicians Drake and The Weeknd both withheld their solo projects —Drake’s honestly nevermind and The Weeknd’s Dawn FM— from the nomination ballot. (Drake did, however, receive three nominations for his features from him on various songs.)

In 2020, The Weeknd angrily slammed the Grammys, calling them “corrupt” after he received zero nominations despite having 2020’s biggest single, Blinding Lights. That same year, Drake claimed the “disconnect” between the Grammy Awards and popular music was making the accolade insignificant.

“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artist that exists now and the ones that come after ,” he said.
