SZA Leads the Pack with Nine Nominations at the 2024 Grammys


On the morning of November 10, The Recording Academy unveiled the complete roster of nominations for the 2024 Grammys, scheduled for February 4, 2024, at the Arena in Los Angeles. The eligibility period spanned from October 1, 2022, to September 15, 2023, setting the stage for a highly anticipated event broadcast live on CBS.

Despite Dua Lipa‘s recently released single “Houdini” missing the eligibility window, the artist secured nominations for Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media with “Dance The Night,” a track from the Barbie movie. However, SZA emerged as the frontrunner with an impressive nine nominations.

SZA made waves with the release of SOS on December 9, 2022. The sophomore album not only claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 for 10 consecutive weeks but also marked a significant moment for SZA, debuting on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songwriters chart.

The singles from SOS, namely “Kill Bill” and “Snooze,” achieved notable success, peaking at Nos. 1 and 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively. SZA’s nominations at the 2024 Grammys span diverse categories, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best R&B Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best Progressive R&B Album, Best R&B Song, and Best Melodic Rap Performance.

Following closely are Phoebe Bridgers, Victoria Monét, and Serban Ghenea, each boasting seven nominations. The list of artists securing six nominations each includes Boygenius, Billie Eilish, Brandy Clark, Jack Antonoff, Jon Batiste, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift. Additionally, Lana Del Rey garnered five nominations.

SZA, who clinched her first Grammy in 2022 as a featured artist on Doja Cat‘s “Kiss Me More,” is poised for potentially historic wins in 2024, with any victory marking her first solo Grammy achievement.
