The nominations for the Grammy 2019 were announced. It was a cutthroat competition. With numerous hits releasing last year, it was hard to predict which song will end up getting a nomination. What no one expected however was that two Hollywood movie soundtracks will take nominations.
Black Panther Nominations
It might have been a song. That’s usually the top possibility for a soundtrack. That a song from a movie might be nominated. However, a song was not just the only musical masterpiece that got the attention. Helmed by Kendrick Lamar, the Black Panther soundtrack was as powerful as the movie was.
The entire soundtrack for the movie was nominated for Grammy 2019. “Black Panther: The Album, Music From And Inspired By – Various Artists” was nominated for
“Album of the Year” category. The soundtrack album included the songs;
