Bad Bunny

Bad Bunny, who is currently on tour, has made history with his hit album, “Un Verano Sin Ti.” This album becomes the first Spanish-language album to ever be nominated for Album Of The Year. In addition to this historic moment, Bad Bunny was also nominated in the categories of Best Pop Solo Performance for “Moscow Mule,” and Best Urban Music Album for “Un Verano Sin Ti.” According to Billboard, “Un Verano Sin Ti” has essentially been the default No. 1 all summer on the Billboard 200 albums chart.”

Beyoncé emerged as the artist with the most nominations of the night, with nine in total. Among the categories in which she is nominated is Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Dance/Electronic Music Album, Best Traditional R&B Performance, Album Of The Year, Best R&B Song, Best Song Written for Visual Media. These nominations put the singer on a total of 88 career nominations, the same as her husband, rapper Jay-Z.

Taylor Swift

However, Swift’s nominations include Song of the Year for “All Too Well” (10 Minute Version) (The Short Film), Best Song Written for Visual Media for “Carolina” [From Where The Crawdads Sing], Best Country Song for “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version), and Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical for “All Too Well” (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault).
