Several of our favorite female artists have achieved GRAMMY nominations for the upcoming 2024 GRAMMY Awards. Let's take a look at some of these artists and their nominations.
Many of these performers have been in the industry for years and we are so glad that they are getting the recognition they deserve.
Our first nominee though nominated for Best New Artist is not new to this, she's true to this. This nominee looks fly, and she looks good, and she puts that on her mama and her hood. It is no other than THEE Victoria Monet.
The singer-songwriter has been the face behind many of our favorite songs throughout the years having worked on songs for multiple artists such as Ariana Grande, T.I., Fifth Harmony, Nas, Lupe Fiasco, Chrisette Michele, and Chris Brown. This year she is claiming her Moment with a resounding SEVEN GRAMMY nominations.
Of those nominations, her viral song "On My Mama" has placed in two categories: Record of the Year and Best R&B song. Among her nominations is Best Traditional R&B performance for her collaboration with Earth, Wind, and Fire and her daughter Hazel Monet on her song "Hollywood." This nomination has made her daughter Hazel Monet the youngest Grammy-nominated artist.
SZA strikes a record for the most-nominated artist for the GRAMMYs 2024 with NINE nominations. SZA has previously won a 2022 GRAMMY award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her collaboration with Doja Cat on "Kiss Me More."
SZA is gaining much recognition for her album SOS, as it has been nominated for Album of the Year and songs from the album, such as "Snooze" and "Kill Bill," have scored SZA GRAMMY nominations across several other categories.
The female rapper rose quickly to stardom this year with her signature curly hair and rapping style. The viral sensation has since placed Top 5 on the Billboard 100 multiple times, collaborated with artists such as Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, and Pink Pantheress, and is now taking her career to new heights with FOUR GRAMMY-nominations.
Her collaboration with Nicki Minaj on "Barbie World" which was featured on the soundtrack for the box office success 'Barbie,' has been nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Song Written for Visual Media. Her collaboration with Taylor Swift on "Karma" has been nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and is up against "Ghost In The Machine" by SZA featuring Phoebe Bridgers.
You may have met Coco Jones as "Roxie" in Disney's popular film Let It Shine, starring alongside Abbot Elementary's Tyler James Williams and Grownish's Trevor Jackson, but Coco Jones has proved herself to be much more than just an actress. While we have always known that Coco has vocals through films, interviews, and covers, she has made a big name for herself as a musical artist through the release of her second single.
The singer had everybody in their feels with her sultry song “ICU,” which ranked #1 this year on the Billboard 100. On top of the hit being GRAMMY-nominated in two categories, the singer has been nominated in FIVE categories overall.
In this video, Coco Jones shares the news with her mom and her reaction is so adorable! Same mom, same. We are so happy for our girl Coco; every single nomination is well-deserved!
Speaking of Disney stars... after having many in awe from her enchanting voice and performance as our new Little Mermaid, Halle’s Black girl anthem “Angel” has been GRAMMY-nominated for Best R&B song.
Many of us know Halle from the singing duo Chloe x Halle that she formed with her sister Chloe Bailey and put out many viral covers on YouTube. The group was signed with Beyonce's record label Parkwood Entertainment in 2015. Halle and her sister were previously GRAMMY nominated for Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album for their debut album The Kids Are Alright. This year, Halle has achieved her first GRAMMY nomination as a solo artist and rightfully so.
The South African artist, Tyla, has gained recognition over the years from her songs "Been Thinking" and "Getting Late," but she is best known for starting the #WaterChallenge. Tyla scores her first Grammy nominated with the viral song “Water” being GRAMMY-nominated for Best African Music Performance.
There is definitely a great line-up of very talented artists in each category. We are so happy to see the amount of Black female artists getting recognition for their craft. Excited to see who wins, but regardless of who wins, I wish all of these artists success in their careers. For many, this is just the beginning.
Who are you rooting for at the 2024 GRAMMYs?
