In news that surprises nobody, the 2017 Grammy nominations were just announced, and well, Beyonce slayed (sleighed for seasonality since it’s December? No. Cool).
A little record called Lemonade dominated this year’s music award nominations, appearing on the short list for 9 categories, including album of the year, song of the year (for ‘Formation’), and best video.
Our boy Drake, however, was not far behind—he has 8 nominations, as do Kanye and Rihanna.
Overall, the list wasn’t particularly surprising (Adele did pretty well for herself too), bar the somewhat obscure choice of Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide to Earth in the Album of the Year category. That said—it’s a fantastic old school country album that certainly deserves the spot.
Now how many sleeps until February 12?!
