Grammy Awards 2023

Diverse and inclusive are two words that aptly define the list of nominations for the 65th Grammy Awards, unveiled yesterday. According to the recording academy, the majority of this year’s nominees are people of colour and almost half are women. American pop sensation Beyonce bagged nine nominations for her work, becoming the most nominated musician in the history of the prestigious award in a tie with her husband and rapper Jay-Z. While her song BREAK MY SOUL reeled in a nomination in the ‘Record of the Year’ category, RENAISSANCE  found its place among the ‘Album of the Year’ nominations.

The names of the nominees were announced by American rapper Machine Gun Kelly and singer-songwriters John Legend, Olivia Rodrigo, and Smokey Robinson. The award ceremony is set to be held on February 5 next year. Here is the complete list of nominations:
