Lizzo Has The Most 2020 Grammy Award Nominations, And It’s Her First Year Being Nominated

The nominees for the 2020 Grammy Awards were announced this morning, and the most immediate takeaway is that Lizzo was a big-time winner. Given all the success her album and singles have had this year, it was fair to expect that she would be among the most-nominated artists, but it turns out she was the most-nominated artist: Lizzo has earned eight Grammy nods this year.

Lizzo and her work is up for Record Of The Year (“Truth Hurts”), Album Of The Year (Cuz I Love You (Deluxe)), Song Of The Year (“Truth Hurts”), Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance (“Truth Hurts”), Best R&B Performance (“How I Feel” Feat. Gucci Mane), Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Jerome”), and Best Urban Contemporary Album (Cuz I Love You (Deluxe)).

Naturally, Lizzo is excited about the news. Following the announcement, she took to Twitter to write in a series of all-caps tweets, “THANK YOU. THIS HAS BEEN AN INCREDIBLE YEAR FOR MUSIC AND IM JUST SO THANKFUL TO EVEN BE PART OF IT. WE ARE ALL WINNERS. I LOVE YOU. LETS HAVE A WONDERFUL BLESSED DAY.”
