Pop superstar Beyonce led the field of musicians nominated for Grammy awards on Tuesday, setting up a showdown with Adele, Harry Styles and others for the top prize of album of the year.

Beyonce landed nine nominations for the highest honours in music. That brought her career total to 88, tying her with husband Jay-Z as the most nominated artist in Grammy history.

Her dance-heavy album Renaissance will compete for album of the year with Adele’s 30, Harry’s House from Harry Styles, Special from Lizzo, and entries from ABBA, Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile and Coldplay.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar, also in the running for album of the year for Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, received eight nominations overall, followed by British singer Adele and singer-songwriter Carlile with seven each.

The nominations again put Beyonce in competition with Adele, who won album of the year in 2017. Adele said at the time she thought that award should have gone to Beyonce’s Lemonade. Beyonce has never won the album award, even though she boasts the most Grammy wins of any female artist with 28.

Classical conductor Georg Solti, who has 31 Grammy trophies, holds the record for most wins overall.

At the awards ceremony in February, Beyonce’s single “Break My Soul” will compete for record and song of the year against Adele’s “Easy on Me.”

Taylor Swift’s 10-minute version of her 2012 song “All Too Well” also landed a nod for best song. Swift’s latest album, Midnights, was released after this year’s eligibility window, which ran from October 2021 through September 2022.

In the best new artist category, contenders include Italian rock band Maneskin, Brazilian singer Anitta and American singer-songwriter Molly Tuttle.

The Grammys will be handed out at a ceremony in downtown Los Angeles on February 5, 2023. Winners will be chosen by the nearly 13,000 musicians, producers and songwriters who belong to the Recording Academy. The awards will be broadcast live on US broadcast network CBS and streamed on Paramount+.
