Houston's sweetheart continues her reign as Queen Bee, with the 59th annual Grammy Award nominations being no exception. Beyoncé took the lead with nine noms, including album of the year for "Lemonade," which tackled topical issues like race and infidelity (lookin' at you, Becky) as well as song and record of the year with "Formation."

The world's favorite brassy Brit also garnered the coveted top three spots with her album "25"—which has sold more than 10 million copies—and record and song of the year for the breakup anthem that you couldn't get out of your head for months, "Hello."

This year's award show, hosted by CBS on Feb. 12 in Los Angeles, includes other heavy hitters, like Drake, Rihanna and Kayne West, who garnered eight nominations, and Chance the Rapper bringing in seven. Also, Justin Bieber received an album of the year nom for Purpose, so all hope is not lost for 2016.
