The 2015 GRAMMY Awards will air on 8 February with the nominees list just being released. Sam Smith, Beyoncé and Pharrell Williams landed the most nominations with six each, followed be Drake, Iggy Azalea, Jay-Z, Usher and others. We know Em (or Iggy Azalea) will probably take the Grammy Awards in the hip hop categories unfortunately, but we’re giving a big thumbs up for people like Schoolboy Q, Jhene Aiko, Robert Glasper & Childish Gambino for making the cut. Check out the complete nominees list:
