The 60th Annual Grammy nominations are in and we have to admit they are pretty lit. Cardi B has been nominated for two Grammys in the categories of Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song and SZA has racked up a total of five nominations making her the most nominated woman for next year’s awards. The “Ctrl” singer is up for Best New Artist, Best Rap/Sung Performance, Best R&B Song, Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Best R&B Performance.

Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Bruno Mars lead the pack with eight, seven, and six nominations, respectively, while Childish Gambino, Khalid, and No I.D. tied SZA with five nods.

Cardi thanked God when she heard the news of her nominations and Khalid, who’s up for Best New Artist among many other awards, referenced a 2014 tweet in which he said he wants to go to the Grammys one day. Four years later, almost to the date, his dream will come true at the 2018 award show taking place January 28.
