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.

    New Video: Cardi B – Press

    THIS IS A VIDEO! Cardi B just visually gets it. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of one video where Cardi didn’t bring her A game…since she has had a budget. This video is very similar to “Money” in the color palette, and I can’t say that I hate it! Check the video out below.
