Spokesmen for the Recording Industry Association of America have announced the nominees for the 84 fields of the 61st GRAMMY Awards, which will be presented in Los Angeles on February 10, 2019. Rapper Kendrick Lamar received the highest number of nominations.

Among the fields in which Lamar was nominated are “Best Album,” “Best Recording,” and “Song of the Year.” Drake, a colleague of the rapper’s, was nominated in seven fields.

Musicians Childish Gambino, Lady Gaga, and Cardi B each received five nominations. The famed Kanye West received only one (“Producer of the Year”). Another nomination went to Taylor Swift for her album “Reputation.”
