The 2019 Grammy Award nominations are out — and so are the reactions.

The Recording Academy announced the new class of nominees on Friday, which placed Kendrick Lamar and Drake at the top with eight and seven nods, respectively. Brandi Carlile, Cardi B, H.E.R., Post Malone, Janelle Monáe and Kacey Musgraves joined the hip-hop stars in the album of the year category. The academy will hand out the awards during the annual ceremony set for for Feb. 10.

Among the snubs were Grammy fixtures Taylor Swift, Sam Smith and Beyoncé and Jay-Z. There was a whole lot of outrage about Swift’s “Reputation” earning only one nomination (for pop vocal album), but a lot of global fanfare for K-pop group BTS’ art director, HuskyFox, scoring a nod for recording package.
