Justin Bieber Among Top Nominees At 64th Grammy Awards

biebs

Canada's Justin Bieber is among the top nominees announced Tuesday for the 64th Grammy Awards.

The singer has eight nominations: Justice (Triple Chucks Deluxe) is nominated for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album and his track "Anyone" is up for Best Pop Solo Performance.

Bieber's "Peaches" ft. Daniel Caesar (also Canadian) and Giveon is up for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best R&B Performance and Best Music Video and his Benny Blanco collaboration "Lonely" is nominated in the Best Pop Duo or Group Performance. 

The nomination in a R&B category are surely music to Bieber's ears. Last year, he complained that his album Changes was excluded from the genre. "I set out to make an R&B album. Changes was and is an R&B album,” he wrote in a message on Instagram.

Also celebrating the nominations announcement was last year’s Best New Artist nominee Doja Cat, who earned seven. Planet Her (Deluxe) is vying for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album and her collaboration with SZA, “Kiss Me More,” is up for Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Pop/Duo Performance. She also earned noms for Best Melodic Rap Performance (for “Need to Know”) and Best Rap Song (for “Best Friend” by Saweetie).

Olivia Rodrigo's Grammys debut could be sweet thanks to Sour. The 18-year-old is up for Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year (“Drivers License”) and Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album (Sour).

On Grammy night, Rodrigo will be 20 days shy of her 19th birthday, so she won’t be anywhere close to the youngest winner if her name is called (see sidebar below) but the Grammys are the first peer-voted awards for which Rodrigo has earned nominations.

Rodrigo had a leading seven nominations at this year’s American Music Awards but went home with only one: New Artist of the Year. At the MTV VMAs, she won half of the six categories in which she was nominated: Best New Artist and both Song and Push Performance of the Year for “Drivers License.” (She also won Best Push Artist at the MTV Europe Music Awards, where she had five nominations.

ARTISTS WHO WON GRAMMYS AT 18 OR YOUNGER

  • The Peasall Sisters - Leah, Hannah and Sarah were aged eight to 14 when they became Grammy winners for having a song on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack, which won Album of the Year in 2002.
  • Blue Ivy – The daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z was nine years old when she got a Grammy in the Best Music Video category for “Brown Skin Girl” from the soundtrack to The Lion King: The Gift (Deluxe Edition) in 2021.
  • LeAnn Rimes was 14 years (and 182 days) old when she became the youngest individual Grammy winner ever. In 1997, she won Best New Artist and Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
  • Luis Miguel was 14 years (and 313 days) old when he won Best Mexican-American Performance in 1985.
  • Stephen Marley was 16 years old when he earned a Grammy for Best Reggae Recording in 1989.
  • Lorde was 17 in 2014 when she won a pair of Grammys – Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance – for “Royals.”
  • Billie Eilish won five Grammys in 2020 when she was only 18 years (and 39 days) old. She is the youngest artist to win both Album of the Year and Record of the Year.
  • Daya was 18 years (and 105 days) old when she shared the Best Dance Recording award at the Grammys with The Chainsmokers in 2017.
  • Monica was 18 years (and 123 days) old when she shared a Grammy in 1999 with her “The Boy Is Mine” collaborator Brandy.

This year's top nominee overall is Jon Baptiste, who scored 11 nods (his birthday is 11/11), including Album of the Year (We Are) and Record of the Year ("Freedom").

Repping Canada at the 64th Grammy Awards along with Bieber is Drake – whose Certified Lover Boy is up for Best Rap Album and “Way 2 Sexy," his track featuring Future and Young Thug, is nominated for Best Rap Performance – as well as Caribou, whose “You Can Do It” is up for Best Dance/Electronic Recording, and Alex Cuba, who is vying for Best Latin Pop Album with Mendó.

Toronto’s Matthew Samuels (aka Boi-1da) and Nova Scotia native Henry Walter (aka Cirkut) are nominated in two categories for their work on Donda.

Among those nominated for their roles on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy are Toronto’s PartyNextDoor, Noah Shebib (aka 40), Scott Zhang (aka Monsune), Anthony Jeffries (aka Nineteen85) and Ebony Oshunrinde (aka WondaGurl) as well as Montreal native Raynford Humphrey (aka Kreme).

Although The Weeknd took his name out of running for Grammy consideration, he and Lil Baby got a nod for being featured on Kanye West’s “Hurricane,” which is up for Best Melodic Rap Performance. The Weeknd would also win a Grammy if either Doja Cat's Planet Her (Deluxe) or Kanye West's Donda wins Best Album because he is featured on both.

Even though they had two of the biggest songs of the year, BTS managed to get only one nomination – for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (for "Butter").

It almost wouldn’t be a Grammys without Taylor Swift and this year she is nominated for Album of the Year thanks to evermore.

Swift has collected 11 Grammys from 41 nominations since 2008. In 2010, at age 20, she became the youngest artist to win Album of the Year (for Fearless) – until Billie Eilish, at 18, took the title in 2020 (for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?).

The nominations reflect music that was released between Sept. 1, 2020 and Sept. 30, 2021. According to the Recording Academy, there were more than 22,000 submissions.

The 64th Grammy Awards will be handed out on Jan. 31, 2022 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
