Beyoncé earned both record and song of the year nominations for her hit “Break My Soul,” while her album, “Renaissance,” garnered the coveted album of the year nomination. Her husband, Jay-Z, also got five nods this year, making the spouses tied for most-nominated artist of all time, with 88 nods each.

Nearly half of this year’s leading nominees are women and more than half are people of color, according to the recording academy. 

Lizzo and Adele are nominated in both the record and song of the year category along with Beyoncé, Lizzo for her massive hit “About Damn Time,” and Adele for her song “Easy On Me.” Their albums “Special” and “30,” respectively, both received a nomination for album of the year.
