Beyonce Makes History with Latest Grammy Nominations
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Beyonce had a major year after she dropped her self titled album, and it’s no surprise after receiving massive album sales that the superstar was nominated handsomely at this year’s Grammy Awards.
However, these latest nominations make Beyonce the most Grammy nominated female artist of all time, a title Dolly Parton used to hold.
This morning, Beyoncé earned her 47th Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album (for her self-titled fifth album). Previously, at 46 nominations, Beyoncé was tied with Dolly Parton. But Bey didn’t stop there: she earned another four nominations — and she could still be nominated for another in the Album of the Year category — for a grand career total of 51 Grammy nods.
It’s now been confirmed that Beyonce’s latest album has also been nominated for Album of the Year. Congrats to Bey.
