A couple area natives nominated for 60th annual Grammy Awards

A couple area natives nominated for 60th annual Grammy Awards

The 2018 Grammy nominations were announced this morning (Nov. 28), and tons of our favorite artists, including veterans and rising stars, have made the cut. Nods for song of the year went to the writers of "Despacito", Jay-Z's "4:44", Mars' "That's What I Like", Logic's "1-800-273-8255" and Julia Michaels' "Issues".

Jay-Z got eight nods for his album "4:44", which mixed dark personal confessions with meditations about race; Lamar had seven for "Damn.", a critical favourite and a smash on streaming services that also addressed racial politics and self-reflection. He's also nominated in every category in the Rap Field, as well as for Best Music Video for "The Story Of O.J".

"Despacito", the hit from Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi featuring Justin Bieber and Daddy Yankee landed three nominations including record and song of the year.

Michaels, SZA, Alessia Cara, Khalid and Lil Uzi Vert are nominated for best new artist.

Fans are now sharing their reactions to the nominees on Twitter, with many sharing their excitement for Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" snagging two nominations, as well as Childish Gambino being considered for Album of the Year and other categories.

The Grammys will be January 28, 2018 in New York City.

The absence of some of the biggest female artists marked a stark contrast with the 2017 awards, when Beyonce led the nominations and Britain's Adele swept the top awards.
