Jay-Z is Now The Most Grammy-Nominated Artist ever With 83 Nods
Jay-Z has now landed the new record for most Grammy nominations ever with 83 total.
The rapper has surpassed Quincy Jones' 80 nods after he received three 2022 Grammy Awards nominations on Tuesday. Jay-Z landed one for Album of the Year for Kayne West’s “Donda” and two in the Best Rap Song category, for DMX’s “Bath Salts” and West’s “Jail.”
Ex-Beatles member Paul McCartney now comes up just behind the rapper with 81 nominations after he nabbed an additional two for 2022 as well.
Jay-Z has won 23 Grammy Awards in his career, including Best Urban Contemporary Album for “Everything Is Love” in 2018 and four Best Rap Song wins, including for “Empire State of Mind” and “Savage.”
His wife, Beyoncé, also made history with last year’s 2021 Grammys, becoming the most-nominated woman and most-awarded singer in the award show’s history.
