Kendrick Lamar, Drake & Cardi B Lead 2019 Grammy Nominations

Rapper Kendrick Lamar leads Grammy award nominations with 8 nods, Drake has 7

Singers Janelle Monáe, Alessia Cara and Shawn Mendes announced a selection of nominees on CBS This Morning. Her latest album was only nominated for one award, best pop vocal album.

His song "All the Stars" is also in the running for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Lamar was nominated for the Black Panther album compilation he executive produced for the blockbuster film. Drake is trailing just behind, with seven nominations.

Notably excluded from the top categories was Swift, who had dominated the Grammys for years. Cardi B - "Girls Like You" Justin Timberlake ft.

Besides Carlile, the record of the year nominees included Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin ("I Like It"); Drake ("God's Plan"); Childish Gambino ("This is America"); Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ("Shallow"); Lamar and SZA ("All the Stars"); Post Malone ("Rockstar"); and Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey ("The Middle").

Six of the 2019 nominees for Best New Artist are women, whose presence in the top categories marked a sharp departure from the previous gala, which saw women snubbed in the major prizes. Minaj completely shut out this year after the release of her last album, Queen.

And Cardi B - the 26-year-old rapper from New York's Bronx neighborhood whose "Bodak Yellow" catapulted her to runaway success - scored five, including two of the most prestigious. While she's having a more hard week than Lamar after announcing her separation from husband Offset, hopefully the Grammy news will continue to lift her spirits.

Trump intends to nominate William Barr as next attorney general
Barr not only said that an investigation of this would be above-board, he claimed it was necessary in the interest of justice. That person said those advising the president viewed Barr as someone who knows the department well, and is a good manager.

Taylor Swift was also snubbed by the Recording Academy over her album "Reputation".

Women performers also achieved far greater presence in the 2019 edition of the top music awards, with Cardi B, Lady Gaga and folk-rock singer Brandi Carlile all nabbing nominations across the top categories. The Carters earned two nods in the R&B category along with best music video, while Grande picked up two nods in pop.

The other rap categories have a wide range of choices as well.

The rapper, 49, failed to win any of his eight Grammy nominations in 2018, but now Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce are up for three awards as The Carters.

Drake's change of heart this year helped Scorpion pick up nominations in several top categories - album, record and song of the year for God's Plan. West, who has never won a Grammy in a major category, was also nominated for just one Grammy, for best non-classical producer.

The 2019 Grammys will hand out awards in its 84 categories live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10, 2019. And "Liquid Melancholy: Clarinet Music of James M. Stephenson" - an album by CSO assistant principal clarinet John Bruce Yeh - was nominated for best engineered album, classical (engineered by Bill Maylone and Mary Mazurek). Though seven of his eight nominations come from "Black Panther", he also earned a nod for co-writing Jay Rock's "Win", up for best rap song.
