The 2023 Grammy Awards nominees are here, and some of music’s biggest names have made the cut. With her latest album Renaissance, Beyoncé has surpassed husband Jay-Z‘s record as the most Grammy-nominated artist of all time. She already holds the record for most Grammy wins in history with 28. With three new nominations today, Jay-Z now has 86 nominations and 24 wins under his belt. Beyoncé had 79 nominations prior to today’s announcement. With nine new ones, she now has 88.

Beyoncé leads in nominations with nine, Kendrick Lamar is in second with eight, and Adele and Brandi Carlile tie for third with seven each. Future, Styles, Mary J. Blige, DJ Khaled, and Randy Merrill have six nominations each. Also part of this year’s Grammy nominations list is the new Songwriter of the Year category. Five songwriters have been nominated for the honor, and each of the songs for which they’re nominated are listed in the category. Some wrote for a handful of artists such as Beyoncé, Adele, Harry Styles, and more. Taylor Swift has also snagged nominations for her re-recorded music in multiple categories.

Other exciting nominations are in the Best Audio Book category, in which Viola Davis snagged a nomination. Should she win, she will be added to the very short list of artists of have E.G.O.T.ed (won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony).
