The nominations came out Tuesday morning and the American singer leads with nine nominations while Drake, Rihanna, and Kanye West each have eight.

The album of the year category is crowded with the biggest pop stars of the moment: In addition to Beyonce, there’s Adele, Justin Bieber, and Drake, plus the country singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson, looking a little out of his element.

Rihanna and Drake share a nomination for record of the year, meanwhile, for their No. 1 hit collaboration “Work.”

Chance the Rapper, who released his album via streaming only, got seven Grammy nominations in his first time on the list, including rap performance and best new artist, after the voting body behind the Grammys changed the rules to allow for streaming works.
