The 2020 Grammy Awards nominations arrived Wednesday (Nov. 20), and eight of the year's most acclaimed LPs are up for album of the year.
Ever since the Recording Academy expanded the category last year from five nominees to eight, the contest for album of the year has grown more diverse and more intense. This year, Lizzo's Cuz I Love You is up against the likes of smash hits from Billie Eilish (When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?), Lil Nas X (7) and Ariana Grande (Thank, U Next).
Also vying for the award are seasoned veterans including Vampire Weekend (Father of the Bride) and Bon Iver (I, I), as well as Lana Del Rey (Norman F---ing Rockwell) and Grammys darling H.E.R. (I Used to Know Her).
