British pop sensation Dua Lipa leads the all-star list of 2018 BRIT Awards nominees, earning five nominations including British Album of the Year for her critically-acclaimed, self-titled album. She’s also up for British Female Solo Act, British Breakthrough Act, the fan-voted British Artist Video of the Year for her empowering “New Rules” video and British Single, also for “New Rules.”

Four-time BRIT Award winner Ed Sheeran is up for four more awards this year including British Album of the Year for his chart-busting, record-breaking third studio album, ÷(Divide). Sheeran is also nominated for British Single and British Artist Video of the Year, both for “Shape of You,” as well as British Male Solo Artist.

The three international categories find huge artists facing off like Taylor Swift, P!INK, and Alicia Keys in International Female Solo Artist and Beck, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar squaring off among the nominees for International Male Solo Artist.

Last year, David Bowie won a posthumous British Album of the Year Award for Blackstar. This year’s extraordinary crop of albums represents multiple genres, with Dua Lipa being the only female nominated in the category.
