The most notable ommission from Tuesday's Grammy nominations was Canadian hip hop artist Drake, whose "More Life" album dominated streaming, charts and radio play since its March release.

Jay-Z has led the nominations for the 60th Grammy Awards' top categories with record, album, and song of the year noms.

Future was also not nominated for any categories, which comes as a surprise to fans, as his "Mask Off" single quickly reached platinum status at the beginning of 2017.

After scoring two Golden Globes for his FX series Atlanta, the Grammys have followed suit by recognizing the greatness that is Donald Glover, by nominating his Childish Gambino album Awaken, My Love! Record Of The YearRedbone, Childish Gambino Despacito, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Featuring Justin Bieber The Story Of O.J.

The best new artist category includes the rapper Lil Uzi Vert, the singers Khalid and Alessia Cara, and two young women, SZA and Michaels, who have developed successful songwriting credentials in addition to their own work as performers.

The 60th annual awards will be broadcast from Madison Square Garden on January 28, the first time the Grammys will have been held in NY in 15 years.

While the obvious Grammy prediction would be Bruno Mars, it would be a shame not to see a rap album win the award.
