    Kendrick Lamar heads the list of nominees for the upcoming Grammy Awards

    The 31-year-old rap star - who is already a 12-time Grammy Award winner - has received eight nominations ahead of the annual bash at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10


    Kendrick - whose work on the 'Black Panther' soundtrack has been rewarded with multiple nominations - is in contention for some of the most coveted gongs at the ceremony, including Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Album Of The Year.

    Following Kendrick, fellow rap star Drake has the second-most number of nominations for the upcoming Grammys.

    The Canadian star - whose latest studio album, 'Scorpion', was released earlier this year - has earned seven nominations in total, while Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Childish Gambino, Maren Morris, H.E.R., and producer Sounwave all notched five.

    But Drake, Kendrick and folk singer Brandi Carlile are the only three artists in this year's list to have received nominations in the prestigious Song, Record and Album Of The Year categories.

    Carlile, 37, has been recognised for her song 'The Joke', as well as her album 'By The Way, I Forgive You'.

    The other nominees for the sought-after Album Of The Year crown include Cardi, H.E.R., Post Malone, Kacey Musgraves and Janelle Monae, meaning that five of the eight nominees in the category are female.

    Elsewhere, Chloe x Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, H.E.R., Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith are all in the running to win the Best New Artist award.

    Meanwhile, Childish Gambino - who has previously spoken about retiring his rap moniker - is also up for the Record Of The Year gong for his much-discussed track 'This Is America'.

    The video for the record - which spawned a wide range of theories and interpretations - is also in contention for the Best Music Video award.
