The 2019 Grammy Award nomination announcements took place on Friday morning (Dec. 7). Kendrick Lamar is the most nominated artist with eight possible wins, followed by Drake, Cardi B and H.E.R., with seven and five nominations a piece.

THIS IS INSANE. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY. 5 NOMINATIONS?????

“Being a young, black, queer woman in America, there was something I had to say .. a group of people I wanted to celebrate, and I’m happy to be representing them. I hope they feel seen, I hope they feel heard. I hope they feel loved. & I hope they feel celebrated” –@JanelleMonae pic.twitter.com/eXPZXyIgWe

I grew up in Texas, singing to @xtina everyday, DESPERATELY trying to hit her high notes.. if you would’ve told me I’d have a Grammy nod with her I would’ve laughed in your face!! This is so surreal..
