H.E.R. also scored Best New Artist and Best R& B Album nods, among others.
Some of the best live performances in music history have taken place on the Grammy Awards stage.

The 2019 Grammy race is a hot one, with a wide-open list of nominees for Album of the Year. Cardi B is a strong contender with her critically-acclaimed debut album Invasion of Privacy.
