Beyoncé Knowles , Taylor Swift & Dua Lipa Lead 2021 Grammy Nominations

Beyoncé leads the field, with nine nominations overall, including four for Black Parade, a protest anthem released at the height of the Black Lives Matter protests this summer.

Taylor Swift, received 6 nominations  with her  album Folklore.

Dua Lipa also received  six nominations for the disco-tinged Future Nostalgia.

Rapper Roddy Ricch tied with  Taylor Swift and  Dua Lipa with six nominations, the majority of which recognized his hit single The Box, which spent 11 weeks at number one earlier this year.
