ASCAP Congratulates Our 2022 Grammy Nominees

November 23, 2021

Two days before Thanksgiving, and the worldwide ASCAP creator community has a whole lot to be thankful for! Nominations for the 64th annual Grammy Awards were announced the morning of Tuesday, November 23, and there is a whole lot of ASCAP talent in consideration for Music's Biggest Night. 

We are indescribably proud that ASCAP Board member Jon Batiste received a whopping 11 nominations, more than anyone else this year! Pop superstar Justin Bieber earned eight nominations, while chart-topping singer-songwriters Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo each got seven. Modern hip-hop giant Lil Baby is up for five Grammys, as is the great Tony Bennett, for his collaborative Cole Porter tribute album with Lady Gaga, Love for SaleFINNEAS also received five nominations – in fact he is competing against himself in the Album of the Year category (Bieber's Justice and his sister Billie Eilish's Happier Than Ever), and also got a nod as Best New Artist for his debut solo record. 

Big ups to ASCAP hip-hop legend Jay-Z for making history as the most-nominated individual in history, with a total of 83!

Beloved singer-songwriter-guitarist Bonnie Raitt will accept a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 ceremony, as will Grandmaster Flash, Salt-n-Pepa and Talking Heads. Those three ASCAP legends were set to receive the honor at the 63rd Grammys in early 2021, but COVID restrictions prevented them from being properly feted. 

Congratulations to all of our Grammy Awards nominees!
