The nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards have been unveiled, with RAYE making history as the most nominated artist in the same year. The singer, who released her acclaimed album My 21st Century Blues last year, scored nods for Best British Album, Song Of The Year (twice), British artist of the year, Best Pop Act, Best R&B act and Best New Artist.

It’s a huge achievement for the singer, who openly told Rolling Stone UK last year how she shook off the shackles of a record label that didn’t want to release her debut record before she ditched them to become an independent artist.

Elsewhere, there’s four nominations for J Hus including Album of the Year (Beautiful and Brutal Yard), British Artist of The Year, Best Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act, and Song of the Year (‘Who Told You’ featuring Drake)Little Simz, meanwhile, has three nominations.

It’s a packed field in Song Of The Year too, with 15 nominations including the likes of Central Cee with ‘Let Go’ and Dua Lipa with ‘Dance The Night’.
