Swift and Lipa are both tied with six Grammy nominations, which include respective Album of the Year nominations for Folklore and Future Nostalgia. Haim’s Women In Music Pt.III was also nominated for Album of The Year, while Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat were both nominated for Best New Artist.
Eilish’s “everything i wanted” was also up for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of The Year, while her James Bong theme “No Time To Die” was nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
