Lamar, who won two Grammys earlier this year, is followed by Taylor Swift and the Weeknd, who each earned seven nominations, including album of the year. “Butterfly,” “1989” and “Beauty Behind the Madness” will battle country singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton’s “Traveller” and rock group Alabama Shakes’ “Sound & Color” for the top prize.

Lamar’s other nominations include best rap album for “Butterfly,” rap performance for “Alright,” pop duo/group performance for “Bad Blood” with Swift and dance recording “Never Catch Me” with Flying Lotus. He’s nominated twice for both best rap song with “Alright” and for co-writing Kanye West’s “All Day,” as well as best music video for “Alright” and “Bad Blood.”
