Taylor Swift made Grammy history with the announcement of the 2024 nominations last Friday. The music sensation secured her spot as the first individual to receive seven nominations in the “Song of the Year” category throughout her career, thanks to her acclaimed hit, “Anti-Hero.”
In addition to this milestone, Swift earned her sixth nomination for “Album of the Year” with “Midnights,” tying her with the legendary Barbra Streisand for the most nominations in that category by a female artist.
The Eras Tour artist accumulated a total of six nominations, extending beyond “Album of the Year” to include nods for “Record of the Year,” “Best Pop Solo Performance,” and “Best Pop/Duo Group Performance.”
SZA leads the pack this year with an impressive nine nominations, with Phoebe Bridgers, Serban Ghenea, and Victoria Monét closely following with seven nominations each.
“We are excited to launch the GRAMMY® season with this year’s array of nominees, spanning diverse genres and pushing artistic boundaries, showcasing the pinnacle of their craft and capturing a remarkable year in music,” expressed Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy.
This noteworthy music update coincides with Taylor Swift’s current activities in Argentina, where she has commenced the Latin America leg of her Eras Tour. Having recently performed in Buenos Aires, Swift is set to continue her tour in Brazil next week, followed by upcoming stops in Japan, Australia, France, and concluding the tour in Canada in December 2024.
In light of this news, NBC News has reached out to Swift for her comments on the remarkable Grammy nominations.
Swift’s success streak continues, with her Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour film raking in $150 million domestically and over $200 million globally. These figures account for more than 18% of the $1.092 billion total global box office earnings since the film’s release on October 13, as reported by data from ComScore.
