JAY-Z is Now Most-Nominated Recording Artist in Grammys History

With next year’s Grammy nominations publicly known, it has been revealed that two records have been made. With 3 nominations for the next Grammy Award show taking place in January, Shawn Carter AKA Jay-Z has become the most nominated recording artist in the history of the award show. And, with his nominations breaking that record, he and his wife Beyonce has become the most-nominated couple in the history of the Grammys.

In an announcement by The Recording Academy, Jay-Z who currently has 23 Grammys has been nominated for three more making it a total of 83 nominations for the billionaire Hip-Hop artist. Beyonce, who is already the female artist with the most Grammy wins at 28 with nominations that total 79. That combined with her husband’s total equates the two of them becoming the most-nominated couple in the history of the Grammys.

Jay-Z surpassed “The Dude”, legendary music producer Quincy Jones who has 80 Grammy nominations while winning 28 of them. With former Beatles member Paul McCartney gaining two nominations this year, has also eclipsed Jones’ total with 81, just 2 behind the Brooklyn-bred rapper.

The Huffington Post reported that Jay-Z received two nominations for next year’s presentation. He was nominated for Best Rap Song for the DMX song “Bath Salts” and “Jail.” His featured verse landed on Kanye West’s album “Donda” which gets him a nomination for the Album of the Year category.

Earlier this year, the couple’s daughter, 9-year-old Blue Ivy, made history herself when she became the second-youngest person ever to win a Grammy for her contribution to the song “Brown Skin Girl.”

Jay-Z was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last month as the former President of the United States, Barack Obama acknowledged and sent a message to Brooklyn’s Finest.

“I’ve turned to Jay-Z’s words at different points in my life, whether I was brushing dirt off my shoulder on the campaign trail, or sampling his lyrics on the Edmund Pettus Bridge on the 50th anniversary of the Selma march to Montgomery,” Obama said in a taped video message. “Today, Jay-Z is one of the most renowned artists in history and an embodiment of the American dream, a dream he has helped make real for other young people like him.”

The 2022 Grammys is set to take place on Jan. 31, 2022.
