2016 Grammy Awards: Complete list of nominees

This year's top nominees for the 58th Grammy Awards — presented by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences — include Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar (who received 11 nominations), megastar Taylor Swift (seven nominations), and Canadian crooner the Weeknd (seven).

Story lines for this year's nominations include the return of R&B star D'Angelo, whose first release in 14 years scored him a record of the year nomination for "Really Love," as well as nods for R&B song and R&B album. Artists Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift earned the trifecta of nominations with album, record, and song of the year categories.
