Drake, Shawn Mendes Nominated At 2019 Brit Awards

Canada’s Drake and Shawn Mendes were announced this weekend as nominees for International Male Solo Artist at the 2019 Brit Awards.

They are up against three Americans – hip hop stars Eminem and Travis Scott as well as jazz musician Kamasi Washington.

This is the fifth time Drake has been up for International Male Solo Artist (he won in 2017) and the first nomination for Mendes.

International Female Solo Artist nominees are Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Christine & The Queens, and Janelle Monae.

Overall, it’s a good year for female artists at the Brit Awards. Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie are tied with a leading four nominations each and, for only the second time ever, more women than men are vying for Album of the Year.

The 39th Brit Awards will be handed out Feb. 20 at The O2 Arena in London.
