queen bey reigns
Texas' own queen Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z are arguably the most over-achieving couple in music.
Queen Bey has been nominated for nine Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy announced on Tuesday, November 15. Those nine nominations make 88 total for the Houston native, who is now tied with her husband (neé Shawn Corey Carter) for the most nominations in Grammy history.
Beyoncé's name was called via a livestream on grammy.com heralding the nominees. Other notable names this year include Kendrick Lamar (eight), Adele (seven), Brandi Carlile (seven), Mary J. Blige (six), DJ Khaled (six), Future (six), Terius "The-Dream" Gesteelde-Diamant (six), Randy Merrill (six), and Harry Styles (six).
As the Beyhive is well aware, Queen Bey has won 28 Grammy Awards, the most of any female vocalist or performer in the awards' existence (she secured four wins last year to cement that status).
This year — the 65th Grammy Awards — Beyoncé is nominated for honors including Record of the Year (Break My Soul), Album of the Year (Renaissance), Song of the Year ("Break My Soul"), Best Dance/Electronic Music Album, Best R&B Performance ("Virgo's Groove"), Best R&B Song ("Cuff It"), and Best Song Written For Visual Media ("Be Alive" from King Richard).

The final round of Grammy voting will take place December 14, 2022, through January 4, 2023. The 65th Annual Grammy Awards show will be broadcast from Los Angeles' Crypto.com Arena on Sunday, February 5, 2023.
Here's guessing our mighty queen's name will be called on more than a few times that day — perhaps even a record number of times.
