According to the Recording Academy, Beyonce is in the lead with nine possibilities to win during the performance-heavy programme honouring the best in the business on February 5.
While Adele and fellow balladeer Brandi Carlile each received seven nominations, rapper Kendrick Lamar received eight.
Six years after Adele was excluded from the most prestigious categories for her contemplative, ugly-cry tribute “30,” Queen Bey will compete with her throbbing club track collection “Renaissance” in those same categories.
Both women broke down in tears after Adele’s victory, calling Beyonce her “idol” and told the crowd that Beyonce’s paradigm-shifting album ought to have won.
That competition increased allegations that the Academy routinely undervalues Black artists.
Beyonce continued to make history with the 2023 nomination list, moving into a tie with her husband Jay-Z for the most nominations ever with 88 each.
With four triumphs, Beyonce, who is already tied with music mogul Quincy Jones for second place in the Grammy standings, may surpass classical conductor Georg Solti as the performer with the most awards.
