GRAMMYs 2019: Listen to All of the Album of the Year Nominees
By Meredith B. Kile
The 2019 GRAMMY nominations were announced on Friday, and while there were more than a few snubs and surprises, the Album of the Year nominees were an eclectic mix of genres, stars, and the year's biggest hits.
Cardi B's debut album, Invasion of Privacy, got a nod, as did Drake's massively successful new offering, Scorpion, and the Black Panther soundtrack, with original songs produced by Kendrick Lamar. Rounding out the category were Post Malone's beerbongs & bentleys, Kacey Musgraves' Golden Hour, Janelle Monae's Dirty Computer, Brandi Carlile's By the Way I Forgive You, and H.E.R.'s self-titled debut album.
This year featured a major move for the GRAMMYs, as they increased the number of nominees in the general field categories -- Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist -- from five to eight, meaning even more music is in the running for the coveted golden gramophone.
Take a listen to the biggest albums of the year below, and tune in on Feb. 10 to see which one takes home the prize!
