2017 Grammy Nomination List Released

The 2017 Grammy Nominations list has been released and to no one’s surprise, Rihanna, Adele, and Beyonce are nom leaders. The Queen Bey even snagged a nom in the “Best Rock Performance” category for her display of aggression on the track “Don’t Hurt Yourself” from her Lemonade Album. Beyonce, rumored to headline Coachella 2017 with Kendrick Lamar, has now been nominated 62 times in her career, more than any other female artist in history. 8 more wins and she’ll best Alison Krauss and her 27 Grammys as the most-honored woman in Grammy history. A little Bey goes a long way.

5thandPratt treasure Anderson Paak snagged multiple noms for work on my personal favorite album of 2016 Malibu, including “Best New Artist” and “Urban Contemporary Album.”  

Chicago native Chance the Rapper and his mixtape The Coloring Book made Grammy history with 7 nominations after the Recording Academy amended rules that now allows streaming only albums to compete.

Solange, fresh off the helm of releasing arguably the most substantial album of the year apparently is still working for A Seat at the Table after being snubbed with only one nom in the “Best R&B Performance” category for her critically acclaimed track “Cranes in the Sky”. Frank Ocean, whom decided not to submit anything for the Grammys this year was nowhere to be found in the nominations list. Love duo Big Sean and Jhene Aiko also missed the Grammys recognition gun with their self-titled TWENTY88 album, another 5thandPratt favorite. The awards show will be held in Los Angeles on Feb. 12 and broadcast by CBS at 8:00 PM PST.
