Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with 11 Grammy Awards nominations. The rapper, whose album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ was voted Number Two in NME’s Albums Of The Year poll for 2015, is up for album of the year and song of the year for ‘Alright’.
His other nominations include best rap album, rap performance, pop duo/group performance for ‘Bad Blood’ with Taylor Swift and dance recording for ‘Never Catch Me’ with Flying Lotus. He’s nominated twice for both best rap song with ‘Alright’ and for co-writing Kanye West’s ‘All Day’, as well as best music video.
“It’s a testimony to his artistry,” Recording Academy CEO Neil Portow said of Lamar’s nominations. “He’s someone that’s very serious about his art and about his craft, and has been working it for quite some time. And this is one of those instances where the work pays off.”
