Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar And Adele Lead 2023 Grammy Selections

Beyoncé won four Grammys in 2021, bringing her total to 28 and making her the most successful woman in Grammy history.

She will have nine chances to increase her total at the ceremony in 2023:The 41-year-old star is the top nominee for the 65th Grammy Awards. Her dance-heavy album "Renaissance" received all but one of her nominations.

With eight nominations, she leads a group that includes Kendrick Lamar;Brandi Carlile and Adele each have seven;the Recording Academy announced on Tuesday that Harry Styles, Mary J. Blige, Future, DJ Khaled, and the producer and songwriter The-Dream each received six nominations.After two years of delays and complications brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, the academy hopes that the Feb. 5 ceremony at Arena in Los Angeles—the former Staples Center—will be its return to something like normal procedure.

Beyoncé's designations are in every one of the three major all-kind classes — collection of the year, in addition to record and melody of the year for her single "Break My Spirit" — as well as in the dance/electronic field and in R&B, where her tracks "Virgo's Score" (R&B execution), "Plastic Off the Couch" (conventional R&B execution) and "Sleeve It" (R&B tune) were completely perceived.Her song "Be Alive," from the movie "King Richard," is also up for best song written for visual media.These bring Beyoncé's career total to 88 nominations, equaling Jay-Z, her husband, as the artist with the most nominations in the awards' history.Jay-Z, who previously held the record with 83 nominations, received five more this year for his contributions to DJ Khaled's "God Did" and "Renaissance.")Beyoncé will surpass classical conductor Georg Solti for the most Grammy awards won by any artist if she wins three in February.She and Quincy Jones are already tied for second place in that race.)

Beyoncé has won only once in any of the four most prestigious categories, despite the flood of nominations she has received since her time with Destiny's Child twenty years ago:as the credited songwriter of the 2010 song "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," which won song of the year.The other victories have all been in genres with lower votes.

Beyoncé will once again compete against Adele in a number of contests, including album of the year (Renaissance vs. Adele's "30") and record and song of the year (Break My Soul vs. "Easy on Me"), which is sure to be one of the night's major storylines.

The two women, both titans of contemporary pop with devoted followings, last met at the Grammy Awards in 2017.In a closely watched contest for album of the year that year, Adele's "25" defeated Beyoncé's "Lemonade." This resulted in long-standing complaints that the awards frequently fail to recognize Black musicians in the most prominent categories.Adele, weeping, said, "I’m very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyoncé" as she accepted the award.Lamar, who returns after five years with "Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers," is one of the other nominees for album of the year this year.Harry's House by Harry Styles;The "Special" of Lizzo;Carlile's "In These Quiet Days";"Good Morning Gorgeous" by Mary J. Blige (in its "deluxe" version);"Music of the Spheres" by Coldplay;The Swedish foursome's first new album in forty years, Abba's "Voyage;and "Un Verano Sin Ti" by Bad Bunny.

The first album performed entirely in Spanish to be up for album of the year is "Un Verano," a streaming smash and the year's best-selling album thus far.The Puerto Rican star Bad Bunny, who has ten nominations, leads the Latin Grammys on Thursday.

“Break My Soul” and "Easy on Me" will compete with Taylor Swift's "As It Was" for record of the year, which honors individual artists, producers, and engineers."About Damn Time" by Lizzo;The "Woman" of Doja Cat;"The Heart Part 5" by Lamar;"You and Me on the Rock," with Lucius, by Carlile;"Don't Shut Me Down" by Abba;"Good Morning Gorgeous" by Mary J. Blige;and Steve Lacy's breakout hit "Bad Habit," which is also up for song of the year, a songwriters' award, along with Gayle's "Abcdefu." "Break My Soul," "Easy on Me," "As It Was," "About Damn Time," "Bad Habit," and "The Heart Part 5" are also up for song of the year, a songwriters' award;"Just Like That," sung by Bonnie Raitt;"God Did" by DJ Khaled;and Taylor Swift's "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)," an extended version of a track from her 2012 album "Red" that she reissued as a new recording in recent years.
