BAJAN SUPERSTAR Rihanna landed eight Grammy nominations when the announcement was made today.

Beyonce leads the pack of Grammy hopefuls at nine, but she and Rihanna are the only two females with so many. 

RiRi is hoping that Work works out for her as she is up for Record of The Year for the song, a collaboration with Drake.

In that category she goes up against Adele (Hello), Beyonce (Formation), Lukas Graham (7 Years) and Twenty One Pilots (Stressed Out). Work is also up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

Rihanna’s latest album Anti is up for Best Urban Contemporary Album and she is hoping Kanye West’s controversial Famous will win Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song on which she lends vocals.

She is nominated for Best R&B Performance (Needed Me), Best R&B Song (Kiss It Better) and Best Recording Package (Anti Deluxe).

Since 2008 RiRi has won eight Grammys

The 2017 awards show will air live from Los Angeles Staples Centre on February 12. (NS)
