The 2017 Grammy nominations were announced this morning, and people naturally already have a lot of feelings (No Zayn for Best New Artist?). 

As expected, many of the top categories will come down to Beyonce vs. Adele (give or take a Drake). Smart money should be on Beyonce to have the slightest edge. Queen Bey has never won Album of the Year, and the Grammys will likely want to acknowledge her most substantial work. 

Beyond the Album of the Year showdown, here are the big storylines coming out of this morning’s Grammy nominations.

“Formation” was nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Music VideoLemonade also got a nod for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
