Beyoncé leads the 2023 Grammy race with nine nominations.

The singer’s haul of latest nods makes her the most nominated artist ever, tying with husband Jay-Z, both scoring 88 nominations throughout their careers.

Her genre-spanning album Renaissance is up for album of the year while hit song Break My Soul is up for both song and record of the year. Beyoncé picked up further nods in both dance/electronica and R&B categories.

Beyoncé has won 28 Grammys, and if she wins more next year, she could potentially beat conductor Georg Solti’s record of 31 wins. She is currently tied with Quincy Jones in second place.

The singer was followed by Kendrick Lamar, who scored eight nominations. He will face off against Beyoncé in album, song and record of the year categories. His competition in the rap section includes DJ Khaled and Future.

Record of the year includes competition from Abba, Brandi Carlile, Steve Lacy, Harry Styles, Lizzo, Doja Cat, Mary J Blige and Adele, who picked up seven nominations. Carlile tied her with seven.

Adele previously beat out Beyoncé for the 2017 album of the year Grammy and paid tribute to her in her acceptance speech. “I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious but my life is Beyoncé, and the album to me, the Lemonade album, Beyoncé, was so monumental, and so well thought out,” Adele said on stage.

Harry Styles, DJ Khaled, Future, The-Dream, Randy Merrill and Mary J Blige received six each. It marks 16 years since Blige received nominations for record and album.

The best new artist category, which has previously seen winners including Olivia Rodrigo, Chance the Rapper and Billie Eilish, features Anitta, Domi & JD Beck, Latto, Måneskin, Molly Tuttle, Muni Long, Omar Apollo, Samara Joy, Tobe Nwigwe and Wet Leg.

Controversial comedians Dave Chappelle and Louis CK picked up separate nominations for best comedy album.

Nominated stars who are not typically associated with music include Amanda Gorman, Patton Oswalt, Mel Brooks and Viola Davis for the audiobook version of her memoir. If Davis were to win then she would become part of the “Egot club”, having already won an Emmy, an Oscar and a Tony.

This year’s awards include new categories such as songwriter of the year (non-classical), best alternative music performance and best Americana performance.

Last month, Nicki Minaj protested against her hit song Super Freaky Girl being moved from rap to pop categories. The song was ultimately snubbed by the recording academy with zero nominations. Other snubs included Ed Sheeran’s most recent album, Rosalía, Blackpink, Megan Thee Stallion, Elton John and Kanye West.

In October, Bruno Mars announced that Silk Sonic, the duo that consists of himself and Anderson .Paak, would be withdrawing their album from contention. At the 2022 ceremony, the pair won four awards for lead single Leave the Door Open. Mars said it would “be crazy to ask for anything more”.

Drake and The Weeknd have also withdrawn their albums for consideration.

The 65th Grammy awards will take place on 5 February.
