Burna Boy Bags BRIT Awards Nomination

Rapper Dave and Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi lead the nominations for this year's BRIT Awards with four nods each, in a new, slimmed-down list of prizes at Britain's top pop music honors.

This year has seen a big shake up to the BRIT award categories such as dropping both the International Group and Best Music Video categories. Jack Whitehall, has been announced as the host for the third year running.

London rapper Dave, 21, broke through a year ago with his album Psychodrama, which topped Britain's album chart, while Glaswegian Capaldi is up for "Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent", the country's best-selling album of 2019.

The "Anyone You Cherished" hitmaker Lewis continued his lovely success by bagging four nods - primarily probably the most of any artist - along with for Best New Artist and one inside the prestigious British Album of the 12 months class, for his debut LP, "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent".

FKA twigs, Charli XCX and Mabel feature amongst the Female Solo Artist nominees, and Mabel also features in the Best New Artist category.

Coldplay, Foals, Bastille, D-Block Europe and Bring Me The Horizon will compete for group of the year.

Among the various non-British artists to acquire recognition inside the worldwide courses are Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Lizzo, Publish Malone, Bruce Springsteen, Camila Cabello, and Lana Del Rey.

Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Lana Del Rey and Lizzo are in the running for best worldwide female solo artist.
