Swift has been nominated in sixcategories for the upcoming 2024 ceremony, including album of the year for Midnights, along withSong of the Year and Record of the Year for its lead single, “Anti-Hero.”
With the new noms, the 33-year-old songstress is shattering records previously held by some of the music industries’ top luminaries — including herself!
Swift co-wrote “Anti-Hero” alongside her frequent collaborator, Jack Antonoff. With the Song of the Year nomination, Swift is now the first songwriter in GRAMMY history to accumulate seven nominations in the category.
She previously shared the top status, at six nominations a piece, with Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie. Her previously nominated songs are “You Belong with Me,” “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” “Lover,” “Cardigan” and “All Too Well (10 Minute Version),” though she has never won in the category.
As for Record of the Year, Swift becomes the first artist whose first five nominations in the category were for solo recordings — not from collaborations or with a group — since Frank Sinatra. Swift was previously nominated for “You Belong With Me,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space.” But, again, has yet to win in this category.
The 12-time GRAMMY winner does already have a trio of Album of the Year wins under her belt for Fearless, 1989 and Folklore. Now, with her Midnights nomination, Swift ties Barbra Streisand for the most nominations in the category with six. (Swift’s albums Red and Evermore were also previously nominated.)
Should Swift’s Midnights win Album of the Year when the GRAMMY trophies are handed out on Feb. 4, she would secure her place atop Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon for the most wins in the category of all time. To reach that milestone, she’ll have to beat World Music Radio by Jon Batiste, the record by boygenius, Endless Summer Vacation by Miley Cyrus, Did you know that there‘s a tunnel under Ocean Blvd by Lana Del Rey, The Age of Pleasure by Janelle Monáe, GUTS by Olivia Rodrigo and SOS by SZA.
