Women Rule the Ranks in 2024 Grammy Nominations

Last Updated: November 16, 2023
SZA leads all artists with nine 2024 Grammy nominations, highlighting a huge year for women in the music industry.

As we approach the end of 2023, the year in review will be all about the women who rewrote the script for success. From Taylor Swift‘s Eras Tour takeover to Beyoncé‘s personal and professional Renaissance, the headlines have highlighted the repeated milestones of women in music.

For 2024’s biggest night in music, we can expect much of the same.

SZA leads everyone with nine 2024 Grammy nominations for her sophomore effort, SOS. The album blazed its own path from its drop, which took place during the usual dead period of December. It went on to sit at the top of the Billboard 200 for 10 weeks.

However, the singer is not the only one to pull multiple nominations. She’s trailed by R&B standout Victoria Monet, who has seven. Meanwhile, Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, boygenius, Billie Eilish, and Miley Cyrus each received six nominations.

Drake will be back in consideration for this year’s awards as well. The rapper submitted She Says, his collab album with 21 Savage, for consideration after rescinding himself from the running for both the 2022 and 2023 awards. He is up for three trophies in the Best Rap Performance, Best Melodic Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album categories.

The 66th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on Feb. 4, 2024 at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.

Boardroom breaks down a select list of the nominees.
