Beyonce Makes History as She Gets Nine Nominations at 2021 Grammy Awards

The 'Black Is King' singer now becomes the most-nominated female artist in Grammy Awards history with a total of 79 nods including the nine mentions at the upcoming event.

AceShowbiz - Beyonce Knowles is going for gold at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards in 2021 after leading all artists with nine nominations, including two for Record of the Year.

"Black Parade" and "Savage Remix" with Megan Thee Stallion has landed Beyonce a double mention in the top category, while the former will also compete for Song of the Year, as well as Best R&B Performance and Song.

"Black Is King", the visual accompaniment to "The Lion King: The Gift" - the superstar's soundtrack for her 2019 Disney remake, is shortlisted for Best Music Film, and "Brown Skin Girl" is up for Best Music Video.

Additionally, the "Savage Remix" is nominated for Best Rap Performance and Song.

The nine new nods make Beyonce the most-nominated female artist in Grammy Awards history with 79 over the course of her career, during which she has won 24.

She is the second-most nominated artist of all time, now tied with Sir Paul McCartney, with the duo trailing Beyonce's rap mogul husband Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, and Quincy Jones, who both boast 80 total nominations.

Jay-Z's career total, of which he has so far won 22, includes three mentions for 2021's ceremony, all for helping to co-write "Black Parade" and "Savage Remix".

The 2021 Grammys look set to be a big night for the ladies with Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, Brittany Howard, Phoebe Bridgers, Fiona Apple, Jhene Aiko, and Billie Eilish among the multiple nominees, while there are also nods for late stars John Prine, Toots Hibbert, and Leonard Cohen.
