These nominations illustrate what an incredible year it has been for British talent

Jason Iley, BRITs chairman and chairman & CEO of Sony Music UK and Ireland, said: “These nominations illustrate what an incredible year it has been for British talent and remind us what a great time it is to be a music fan, both in the UK and beyond. I’m delighted to see the nominations representing talent across a wide variety of genres – from returning artists to some incredibly exciting new talent, who are set to become the stars of the future. With such a strong list of nominees, we are certain of a fiercely contested and exciting night at the awards show in February.”

In the international categories, US rappers including Drake, Eminem and Travis Scott appeared in the Male shortlist, though Post Malone and the late Xxxtentacion missed out.

US artists also dominate the International Female Solo Artist category, with Christine And the Queens flying the flag for France in a tough contest with Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cardi B and Janelle Monae.

Former BRITs winners Jay-Z and Beyonce are nominated as The Carters in the International Group category, alongside Brockhampton, First Aid Kit, Nile Rodgers & Chic and 21 Pilots.
