Kendrick Lamar leads all Grammy nominees with 8

Kendrick Lamar performs on the fourth and final day of the Firefly Music Festival in Dover Delaware U.S

That's because her two Grammy nods a year ago disqualify her from a best new artist award.

It's not a surprise that Cardi B is up for Grammy Awards, but fans might be confused that she is not nominated for best new artist.

THE GREATEST SHOWMAN has been nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media and "This is Me" from the soundtrack was nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Pusha-T, Nipsey Hussle, and the aforementioned Scott garnered pinnacle recognition for their respective 2018 releases, all grabbing nominations in the "Best Rap Album" category.

He didn't run away with the crown, though, as Drake was right behind him with seven nominations of his own. Monáe, herself snagged an Album Of The Year nomination for her most recent project, Dirty Computer.

The Carters did get two nominations for R&B and best music video, while perennial favorite Taylor Swift earned just one nomination for best pop vocal album.

But women will also lead in a variety of categories this year.

Singer H.E.R. also received five nods for her self-titled 2017 album, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year.

Women performers were underrepresented in the top four categories and in the awards broadcast at the Grammys earlier this year, but will have a strong presence at the upcoming show. She is just the seventh woman ever nominated for prize and first since 2004. Boi-1da, born Matthew Samuels in Toronto, was nominated as producer for his body of work this year, which includes songs with Drake, Cardi B, G-Eazy, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z. 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.

Beyonce and Jay-Z, billed as The Carters, as well Ariana Grande, didn't earn any of the big nominations. Camila Cabello, Malone, Mendes, Dan + Shay and DJ Mustard are also first-time nominees.

Lady Gaga's nominations came mostly from her single "Shallow" with actor-director Bradley Cooper from their movie A Star is Born, which won five Golden Globe nods on Thursday.

Other famous faces outside of music to earn nominations include Tiffany Haddish and former United States president Jimmy Carter, both up for best spoken word album.

The couple, however, have been surprisingly shut out of the main categories including Best Album. Chris Cornell, who died past year, is up for best rock performance with "When Bad Does Good". The Nanaimo, B.C. singer and Bennett's rendition of 'S Wonderful is up for best pop duo performance, while their Love is Here to Stay is in the running for traditional pop vocal album.

Lamar has won 12 Grammys throughout his career. Fellow Black Panther song "King's Dead" was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Rap Song.
