The 2021 Grammy Awards nominations are all about women’s power with Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and Dua Lipa leading the way. Beyonce is leading the contender at the 2021 Grammy Awards with nine nods. She is followed by Taylor Swift, Roddy Ricch, and Dua Lipa, who earned six nominations each.
Brittany Howard, of Alabama Shakes fame, earned five nominations for her solo debut. Earning four each was Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Phoebe Bridgers, Justin Bieber, jazz pianist John Beasley, and classical producer David Frost reports Variety.
As a shocker, The Weeknd didn’t get nominated. Despite being predicted to dominate the nominations at the 63rd annual Grammys, the pop-R&B superstar’s “Blinding lights” single and “After Hours” album got zero nominations.
