Some of music's biggest names, including Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift will be vying for top pop vocal honors
This year's pop field of GRAMMY nominees is stacked some of the heaviest hitters in the music world today. Let's take a closer look at the five artists and albums up for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards.
The Lion King: The Gift – Beyoncé
Reigning supreme as Queen B, Beyoncé continued to expand her horizons with the soundtrack to one of the year's biggest films, showing the world how much "Spirit" she still has inside to share. In all, Bey earned four noms at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards including three for her work on The Lion King: The Gift plus a nod for Best Music Film for her fan favorite Homecoming.
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? - Billie Eilish
It was difficult to go anywhere in the music-sphere this year without being drawn into the web of Billie Eilish. After amassing a cavalcade of fans from her pair of 2017 EPs, when her debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? finally arrived, it delivered. Still a teenager, Eilish earned an impressive six nominations this year for the 62nd GRAMMY Awards.
thank u, next - Ariana Grande
Pop powerhouse Ariana Grande has been on a prolific tear through the music world of late, releasing two GRAMMY nominated albums in just a six month span. Her 2018 effort, Sweetener, won Best Pop Vocal Album at last year's GRAMMY Awards, will the "7 rings" singer score repeat victory in the category this year?
No.6 Collaborations Project - Ed Sheeran
Proving he can do it all, acoustic pop darling Ed Sheeran released a different kind of LP in 2019, a staggering lineup of collaborations aptly called No.6 Collaborations Project. The album earned Sheeran the 14th GRAMMY nomination of his career. In fact, he won in this same category just two years ago for ÷ (Divide).
Lover - Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift filled her seventh studio album, Lover, with pure pop bliss. Now Swift looks to add another GRAMMY to her trophy shelf. No stranger to this category, Swift was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album last year for Reputation and won in this category four years ago for 1989, which also earned her the second Album Of The Year GRAMMY of her career.
