2019 Grammy Nominations: Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Brandi Carlile Lead as Major Categories ExpandThe 2019 Grammy nominations were announced Friday morning, after a brief delay, with Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Brandi Carlile and producer Boi-1da leading the pack this year with seven nods apiece.

Drake, Carlile and Lamar were all recognized in the three biggest categories — Album, Song and Record of the Year — for their most recent albums, “Scorpion,” “By the Way, I Forgive You” and the “Black Panther” soundtrack, respectively.

In addition to the four nominations for his work with frequent collaborator Drake, Boi-1da, a.k.a. Matthew Samuels, earned two additional nods in the rap categories for serving as a writer on Eminem and Jay Rock singles. He also received a nomination for Non-Classical Producer of the Year.

“Reflection, reevaluation, and implementation have been the driving forces at the Recording Academy over the past year,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “From convening our Task Force On Diversity & Inclusion and launching our new community-driven membership model, to increasing the number of nominees in the General Field, and to playing a leadership role in the successful passage of the landmark Music Modernization Act, the Recording Academy has reaffirmed its commitment to music creators across all facets of our industry. And, it’s our awards process that has taken a front seat during this evolutionary period to ensure the GRAMMY Awards reflect the ever-changing needs of the creative community. We are proud of this year’s nominations results and congratulate all of the talented and deserving nominees.”

“Every year the Recording Academy voting membership has the biggest responsibility within our entire GRAMMY Awards process due to the fact they vote to determine who among their peers are the nominees,” said Bill Freimuth, Chief Awards Officer of the Recording Academy. “Once again, their votes have produced an impressive list of nominees across multiple genres, promising music fans a spectacular show filled with stellar performances and unique GRAMMY moments.”

The Grammys will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.
