Throughout the last year, the music world has suffered some huge losses: the death of Bowie, Prince, and Lemmy being particularly notable.

However, 2015/16 has also given us a lot to celebrate: Adele broke records with 25, Kanye West redefined how to release an album, and Beyoncé released the groundbreaking Lemonade.

As expected, those three artists are just some of this year’s Grammy nominees, with Beyoncé leading the pack with nine nominations. Drake, Rihanna, and Kanye West follow closely with eight, while newcomer Chance the Rapper comes in with seven.

Here’s the full list of nominees in full, featuring the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Radiohead, PJ Harvey, and Blink 182.
