Jay-Z leads Grammy Award nominations

The 60th Grammy Awards announced their nominations Tuesday morning, with rapper Jay-Z leading the pack with eight, Variety reports. Kendrick Lamar followed with seven nominations, Bruno Mars with six, and Childish Gambino (the musical stage name for actor Donald Glover), SZA, Khalid, and No I.D. coming in with five each.

The hit "Despacito," by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, was nominated for song of the year, and could become the first Spanish-language track to ever win that award, the Los Angeles Times reports. Taylor Swift's new album, Reputation, which sold over 1.2 million copies in its first week, did not make the cutoff to qualify for this year's awards; however, her single "Look What You Made Me Do" did, but was not nominated.

The awards will air live on CBS on Jan. 28. Read the full list of nominees at Variety.
