Jay-Z Makes Grammys History As The Most Nominated Artist Of All Time

Jay-Z has made Grammys history.

The music mogul has earned a total of 83 Grammy nominations in his career, making him the most nominated artist of all time, the Recording Academy announced on Wednesday.

The rapper scored three nods for the 2022 Grammy Awards ceremony on Tuesday, surpassing Quincy Jones, whom he was previously tied with for 80 noms.

Jay-Z received two nominations this year for Best Rap Song for his work on songs “Bath Salts” and “Jail.” He was also recognized for his work on Kanye West’s album’s “Donda” in the Album of the Year category.

The hip-hop legend has had quite an exciting couple of months.

Last month, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, where among tributes he received that night was a taped video message from former President Barack Obama. He was also honored by Dave Chappelle, who gave an in-person speech at the ceremony in Cleveland.

But Jay-Z isn’t the only person in his family to make Grammys history.

Beyonce broke the record for having the most Grammy wins by a female artist in history back in March. And their oldest child, 9-year-old Blue Ivy, became the second-youngest person ever to win a Grammy that same month with her contribution to the song “Brown Skin Girl.”

The 2022 Grammys is set to take place on Jan. 31, 2022.
