Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar Lead Grammy Nominations! Cardi B & SZA snatch some too…

Jay-Z snags 8 nominations this year for the 2018 Grammy Awards, while Kendrick picks up 7. In the Top 4 categories, both of these gentleman secure nominations for Record of the Year (The Story of O.J./Humble) and Album of the Year (4:44/Damn)! Jay also snagged a nomination in Song of the Year. This really solidifies that this year is deemed the year of Hip Hop!

A few surprises on the list were Cardi B! She snagged 2 nominations for Bodak Yellow in rap categories, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. Newcomer SZA secured a nomination in the Top 4 as well, as she is nominated for Best New Artist. Outside of the Top 4, SZA also nominated for Best Rap/Sung Performance (Love Galore), Best R&B Song (Supermodel), Best Urban Contemporary Album (Ctrl) and Best R&B Performance (The Weekend).

If you ask me, the nominations are solid. I do feel like they shut out DJ Khaled, who has a tremendous year. Mary J. Blige, who had one of the best R&B albums this year. And Rihanna. I’m starting to think the Grammys hate her, after losing every Grammy last year, she had one of the biggest songs this summer (Wild Thoughts) and she was completely looked over.

2022 Oscars Coverage

Published

By

Well lets just start out with it was a very eventful night! The internet is buzzing about the slap seen around the world. But how about we take a minute to talk about the monumental wins. Will Smith took home his first Academy Award in his career. He won for his work on the critically acclaimed King Richard. Do you know how crazy that is? A career of groundbreaking movies, and he finally got his flowers. Billie Eilish took home the trophy for Best Original Song, for her song “No Time To Die” from the 007 movie of the same name. Ariana DeBose took home the win for Best Supporting Actress, for her work on West Side Story. She is now the first openly queer woman to win an acting Oscar. Questlove took home the win for his work on “Summer of Soul” in the Best Documentary category.

When it comes to performances, I will say that I loved Beyonce’s “Be Alive” and Billie Eilish’s “No Time To Die“. Awkwardly, there was a performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” that featured Megan The Stallion, Becky G and Luis Fonsi. I was left staring at the screen like “…why?!?”. Check them out below.
