2017 Grammy Award Nominations: Beyonce Leads With 9

Beyoncé just made Grammy history.

The Associated Press (via the New York Post) reports that the Lemonade singer led the 2017 Grammy Award nominations with a whopping nine nominations, including in the prestigious categories of Album of the Year (Lemonade), Song of the Year, ("Formation") and Record of the Year nominations. She also became the first artist to earn nominations in pop (for "Hold Up"), rock (for "Don't Hurt Yourself" with Jack White), and rap-sung (for "Freedom" with Kendrick Lamar) categories within the same year, thanks to the versatility and variety of Lemonade's tracks.

Queen Bey also became the most nominated woman in Grammy history with a total of 62 nods through her illustrious career.

Drake, Rihanna, and Kanye West, each nabbed eight nominations, and Adele is nominated for the same Big Three as Queen Bey for 25, as well as for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance for "Hello."

Justin Bieber is up for Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year for Purpose, as well as Song of the Year for "Love Yourself."

Chance the Rapper was nominated for Best Rap Song for "No Problem," and earned nods for writing credits on Kanye West tracks "Ultralight Beam" and "Famous," as well as Best Rap Album for "Coloring Book."

The late, great David Bowie was posthumously nominated for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album Non-Classical for Blackstar.

Interestingly, a few artists who you likely assumed were nominated previously for Grammys got their very first nods this year: Blink-182 for Best Alternative Album for California; Solange for Best R&B Performance; and Demi Lovato for Best Pop Vocal Album. An ecstatic Lovato tweeted, "I still can't believe I've been NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY.... you guys have no idea how unbelievably grateful and happy I am.. wow... #pinchme."
