Beyonce is looking to takeover the Grammys with nominations in a broad spectrum of categories for her multi-faceted LP Lemonade.
Beyonce made a splash in the country music world last week when she performed with the Dixie Chicks at the Country Music Awards. Country music fans were outraged she took the stage, in part because they disagreed with her stance on police (or their interpretation of it), and expressed distaste towards someone who doesn't typically fall in the country category hogging the spotlight from bonafide country artists.
Stay pressed, because she has her sights set on rocking the rock wold next.
According to the BeyHive, who are pretty much never wrong, Beyonce submitted nominations in 12 categories for the 2017 Grammys, and two of the categories include rock.
That's right, Beyonce could potentially win a Grammy for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for her song "Don't Hurt Yourself" featuring The White Stripes frontman Jack White.
On Dec. 6, the Recording Academy will announce the nominees, and if Queen Bey has her way, she'll land in categories for the aforementioned, as well as pop, rap and R&B.
Other potential nominations include Lemonade for Album of the Year, Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Film.
“Formation” could receive nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Song and Best Music Video.
“Hold Up” was submitted for Best Pop Solo Performance.
The Weeknd-assisted “6 Inch” could be nominated for Best Pop Duo / Group Performance.
And the socially charged song “Freedom” featuring Kendrick Lamar might land in the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category.
