On Friday night’s 56th Grammy Award Nominations concert, hosted by LL Cool J, the rapper’s latest album ‘Holy Grail’ came out on top.
And while Jay grabbed the top slot, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell Williams each received seven nominations.
Drake and mastering engineer Bob Ludwig were in third place with five nominations each.
