The Carters will have another chance to add to their massive awards collection at the 2019 Grammy Awards after Jay-Z was snubbed previous year at the same ceremony. Instead, country singer Kacey Musgraves beat him to the punch with a nomination for album of the year. In 2017, his wife, Beyoncé received nine Grammy nominations, but when she only won best urban contemporary album and best music video, Adele asked during her acceptance speech, "What does Beyoncé have to do to win album of the year?".
Hip-hop dominated across the board for a second year running - though last year, rap mogul Jay-Z racked up the most nominations but left empty-handed, and Lamar was shut out of the general categories.
The Black Panther soundtrack, which he was heavily involved in, was nominated for Album Of The Year, while the score was nominated for Score Soundtrack For Visual Media. Another notable omission from the top categories was singer Ariana Grande, whose "Sweetener" album is shaping up as one of the year's biggest commercial successes.
On the flip side of that equation is best new artist nominee Margo Price, who has been releasing independent music since 2010.
Beyonce is the most nominated female artist in Grammy history with a total of 66 nods and 22 wins.
The rest of the best new artist nominees included Chloe x Halle, Luke Combs, H.E.R, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

Women performers also made their mark in the top categories after being largely snubbed a year ago, with rapper Cardi B, pop diva Lady Gaga and folk-rock singer Brandi Carlile all nabbing key nominations for music's top awards.
Six songs are up for both record and song of the year: Lamar and SZA's All the Stars; Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's Shallow, from the A Star Is Born soundtrack; Childish Gambino's This Is America;Drake'sGod's Plan; Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey's The Middle; and Carlile's The Joke. Their direct competitors are Gregory Porter, for Nat "King" Cole & Me, as well as Seal, Barbra Streisand and Willie Nelson, for albums largely featuring songbook standards. And former Chicagoan Kurt Elling was nominated for best jazz vocal album for "The Questions".
