‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’ has been nominated for Song of the Year.
The annual list of Grammy nominations has landed and The Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki and Flume are among this year’s nominees. Aoki’s I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead could win him a Grammy for Best Music Film, while The Chainsmokers’ ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ has been nominated for Best Dance Recording, alongside Flume.
Beyoncé, Adele, Drake, Rihanna, Chance the Rapper and Kanye West are predictably up for multiple awards, with Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Adele’s 25 and Drake’s Views all nominated for Best Album of 2016. As The Fader reports, Beyoncé is now the most-nominated woman artist in Grammy history, with her nine nominations this time around bringing the total up to 62 across her career.
In the Best Rap Album category, Chance The Rapper’s Coloring Book is up against Drake’s Views, Kanye’s The Life of Pablo, De La Soul’s And The Anonymous Nobody, Schoolboy Q’s Blank Face LP and DJ Khaled’s Major Key. This marks the first year that the recording academy has made streaming-only recordings eligible for Grammy consideration, a move which benefitted Chance’s The Rapper’s Coloring Book album.
The awards show will air live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center on February 12th – see the full list of nominations on the Grammy site.
