The Recording Academy has revealed the nominees for the 64th annual Grammy Awards, and the awards body is spreading the love around. For the first time, it celebrates 10 nominees in each of the general field categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist. This year’s top nominees include Jon Batiste with 11 nods, followed by Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and H.E.R. with eight each. Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo are close on their heels with 7 nods apiece. Each of those artists is nominated for the night’s top award, Album of the Year, and are joined in that category by Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, and Lil Nas X. Jay-Z made history with three new nominations, making him the most-nominated artist in Grammys history after previously being tied with Quincy Jones at 80 nods each. Jay-Z scored two nominations for Best Rap Song — for DMX’s “Bath Salts” and for Kanye West’s “Jail” — as well as an Album of the Year nod for his work on Kayne West’s “Donda.” The rapper-producer has won 23 Grammys throughout his career.
The awards are voted on by the Recording Academy’s voting membership body of music makers, who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers, and engineers. Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason jr. announced the nominees Tuesday morning, alongside Recording Academy Chair Tammy Hurt, CBS Mornings anchor Gayle King, rock band Måneskin, singer-songwriter Carly Pearce, and current nominees Tayla Parx, Nate Bargatze, Jon Batiste, BTS, Billie Eilish, Finneas, and H.E.R.
