It’s difficult to count how many Grammys Jay Z has won and nominated. The singer and songwriter’s newest album, “4:44,” earned eight nominations and is one of the most successful albums in history. He is the most nominated artist in Grammy history. He is tied with Quincy Jones, who has the most wins with 78. However, Jay-Z is not all about winning. He’s also received many nominations for guest appearances with Kanye West and DMX.
How Many Grammys Does Jay Z Have?
Despite being nominated for Grammys nearly every year, Jay-Z has not won the award for “Best Rap Album.” He has been nominated for two albums and one song. In 2018, Beyonce won his first ever Grammy. In 2016, he received his second-ever nomination for “Hypnotize.” In 2011, he was nominated for “The Message” by Rihanna and Drake.
Jay-Z’s latest nominations landed him one step closer to surpassing the legendary Quincy Jones. The hip-hop artist had already earned three Grammy nominations in 1999, but didn’t attend the awards ceremony. At the time, he blamed DMX for “boycotting” the ceremony, as he was too busy with the release schedule. Since then, he has been nominated for 23 Grammys.
