Nods for song of the year went to the writers of "Despacito", Jay-Z's "4:44", Mars' "That's What I Like", Logic's "1-800-273-8255" and Julia Michaels' "Issues".

The Recording Academy said Tuesday that Jay-Z's "4:44" and Mars' "24K Magic" are nominated for album of the year alongside Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN.", Childish Gambino's "Awaken My Love!" and Lorde's "Melodrama". Bruno Mars had six nominations, and Childish Gambino, Khalid, SZA and No I.D.

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on January 28, 2018 and will be broadcast on CBS.

Taylor Swift's "Reputation" album will not be eligible this year due to its November release, but she garnered two nominations including writing country group Little Big Town's "Better Man". Lady Gaga and Kesha landed two nods each in the same categories as Sheeran.

So, it's artists best known for singles against a Jersey girl who has the strongest, most critically acclaimed album of the bunch.

Considering how male-heavy the other three "Big Four" categories are this year, I have a hunch that Best New Artist will nearly certainly be a female artist.
