Beyonce predictably ranks as the most-nominated artist for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

With eight nominations each, Drake, Rihanna, and Kanye West tie for second place. Drake is competing for Album Of The Year, while Drake is nominated as a featured artist on Rihanna’s Record Of The Year candidate “Work.”

Chance The Rapper takes fifth place with 7 total nominations, including a Best New Artist look.
