Lamar leads Grammy noms, where women make a comeback

Singers Janelle Monáe, Alessia Cara and Shawn Mendes announced a selection of nominees on CBS This Morning.

The recognition for work on his 2018 double-album Scorpion, as well as contributions to other rappers' tracks, comes after the Toronto-raised performer boycotted last year's Grammys by choosing not to submit anything from his previous release, More Life.

His most recent loss was in February when his critically acclaimed "DAMN" fell short to Bruno Mars' "24K Magic", though Lamar's project would go on to win a Pulitzer Prize for music two months later, making him the first non-classical or jazz artist to win the prestigious honor.

He'll face competition at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, from fellow rappers Drake, Cardi B and Childish Gambino - as well as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, who snared nominations in both of those top categories for their hit "Shallow" from the film "A Star is Born".

Who's Presenting?: Last year's Best New Artist victor, Alessia Cara, will join Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monae and Apple Music host Zane Lowe to announce the nominees in select categories. She has garnered 10 awards and is the only woman to win album of the year twice.

Cardi B is up for Album of the Year for Invasion Of Privacy plus Record of the Year for "I Like It". While she's having a more hard week than Lamar after announcing her separation from husband Offset, hopefully the Grammy news will continue to lift her spirits.

Women are also dominating in the Album of the Year section, and we're proud to see breakout artists H.E.R. and Tierra Whack pop up in a few spots as well.

The Carters did get nominations for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Performance and Best Music Video.

Ella Mai was also nominated in the Song of the Year category for her heavily rotated hit "Boo'd Up".

This year, the Carters are up for three Grammys, but none of the big four categories (record of the year, album of the year, song of the year and best new artist). The pop singer, raised in Pickering, Ont., was named in two categories - song of the year for In My Blood and best pop vocal album.

Nominees across the genre's were more diverse list this year due to the outcry over the lack of color at last year's award ceremony.

With the success of her breakout single, "Bodak Yellow", which earned two GRAMMY nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 60th GRAMMY Awards past year, Cardi B set the stage for one of the most anticipated debut rap albums in recent memory.
