Beyoncé tops the list of 2017 Grammy nominees -- see the full list

In a year when everything seemed to go right for
Beyoncé, the artist has nabbed the most nominations in the 2017 Grammy nominations that came out Tuesday morning. She leads with nine nominations while Drake, Rihanna, and Kanye West each have eight.
The album of the year category is crowded with the biggest pop stars of the moment: In addition to Beyoncé, Adele, Justin Bieber, and Drake, plus the country singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson, looking a little out of his element. Rihanna and Drake share a nomination for record of the year meanwhile, for their No. 1 hit collaboration “Work.”

Chance the Rapper, who released his album via streaming only, got seven Grammy nominations in his first time on the list, including rap performance and best new artist, after the voting body behind the Grammys changed the rules to allow for streaming works. It’s being seen as a move to embrace how people consume music today in awards that are often criticised for being antiquated.

In case you’re wondering why Frank Ocean is absent for his own streaming album “Blonde,” the singer refused to submit it for consideration.
