    Beyoncé bags 9 nominations

    Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, and Roddy Ricch picked up the most nominations. The Weeknd and Luke Combs were among the artists surprisingly snubbed this year.

    The academy’s latest anointment of Beyoncé (who scored nine nominations in total, more than any other artist) and Swift (who got six) signals something of an industry consensus on music’s biggest stars — even in a year as disruptive as 2020.

    Recall, Wizkid appeared on Brown Skin Girl song by Beyonce, the song eventually bagged a nomination in the 63rd Grammy Awards.
