It's a good day for Kendrick Lamar. The rapper received 11 nominations — the most of any artist — for the 58th annual Grammy awards. Lamar's album, To Pimp A Butterfly, is up for Album Of The Year, competing alongside Taylor Swift's 1989 and The Weeknd's Beauty Behind The Madness. Swift and The Weeknd each received seven nominations, the second highest amount behind Lamar.

Worth noting: Swift and Lamar actually share two of their nominations. Their collaboration "Bad Blood" is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group performance and Best Music Video. Swift's "Blank Space" is up for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" is also represented in both of those categories.

Alabama Shakes' Sound & Color and Chris Stapleton's Traveller are also up for the coveted Album Of The Year. Meanwhile, newbies like Tori Kelly and Meghan Trainor are up for Best New Artist. Drake has collected five nominations, including one for Best Rap Album, where he will compete opposite Lamar and Nicki Minaj.
