Lorde nominated for a Grammy

scandal 29/11/2017

Kiwi singer Lorde is up for another Grammy Award.

Her 2017 LP Melodrama is up for Album of the Year alongside other critically acclaimed albums from some of music's biggest names.

Melodrama joins Jay-Z's sample-heavy 4:44, Kendrick Lamar's intellectual rap album DAMN., and Bruno Mars' funk-infused 24K Magic in the category. Childish Gambino's soulful record Awaken, My Love! is also up for the accolade.

Lorde will head to the Grammys early next year after a massive year where she took out NME magazine's Album of the Year along with New Zealand Music Awards.

The 'Green Light' hitmaker already has two Grammys from 2014, for Best Solo Pop Performance and Song of the Year for her hit single 'Royals', and is the youngest artist ever to have an international number one single.

The other big category, Record of the Year, will be a battle between hip-hop and R&B stars with Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Bruno Mars and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee all nominated.
