His album “Renaissance” will compete for best album of the year with Adele’s “30”, Harry Styles’ “Harry’s House” and Lizzo’s “Special”, among others.
Rapper Kendrick Lamar, also an album of the year nominee for “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,” received eight nominations, followed by Adele and singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile with seven each.
The nominations set up a rematch between Beyoncé and Adele, who won album of the year in 2017. Adele said from the stage that she believed the award should have gone to Beyonce’s “Lemonade.”
