Music’s biggest night is fast approaching and the 2019 Grammy nominations have officially been released.

Hip-hop dominates the Record of the Year category, with Cardi B, Drake, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, and Post Malone taking up five of the seven artist hopefuls. Overall, Kendrick Lamar leads with eight nods, Drake follows closely with seven, and Childish Gambino earns five nods. Women also dominated on the whole, with Lady Gaga and Cardi B each earning five nods.

While music’s most coveted award show doesn’t televise electronic dance music’s portion of the ceremony, the academy does now honor the genre in two categories. Included in the list of nominated hopefuls for Best Dance/Electronic Album is Jon Hopkins, Justice, Sohpie Tukker, SOPHIE, and TOKiMONSTA.

Best Dance Record hopefuls include Above and Beyond for their Richard Bedford-assisted single, “Northern Soul,” which came out on their Common Ground LP released this past spring. Disclosure also received a nod for a track from their week-long slew of releases this year: “Ultimatum,” featuring Fatoumata Diawara. Elon Musk’s favorite track of the year was also nominated by way of Fisher‘s “Losing It.” Diplo and Mark Ronson’s Silk City collaboration with Dua Lipa, “Losing It,” also made the list, while Porter Robinson received his first Grammy nod for Virtual Self‘s “Ghost Voices.”
