POP sensation Taylor Swift has broken yet another record when the 2024 Grammy nominations were announced on Friday.

Swift has scored seven nominations in the Grammy’s Song of the Year category 2024 for her hit Anti-Hero, making her the first person to be nominated in the category seven times throughout her career.

Her recent nomination means she has passed the likes of Sir Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie, who both have six nominations in the Song of the Year category.

The nominees for Song of the Year include artists Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, Jon Batiste, SZA, Dua Lipa, Lana Del Ray and Olivia Rodrigo.

Swift, who is currently selling out shows on her legendary Eras Tour, has also been nominated in the Album of the Year category, for her latest album Midnights, alongside other artists, including Lana, Olivia and SZA. This makes her tied with music icon Barbra Streisand for the most nominations by a female artist in the Album of the Year category.

And, if she were to bag another Album of the Year award, it would make her the first artist to win the award four times.

The Anti-Hero singer seized her first Song of The Year nod with her iconic track You Belong With Me in 2010, and she was also nominated in 2015 for her hit Shake it Off, in 2016 for Blank Space, 2020 for Lover, 2021 for Cardigan and in 2023 for All Too Well.

The epic news comes as Swift’s Latin America tour kicked off, with the star performing in Buenos Aires on Thursday, heading to Brazil next week. And, next year she will be touring Japan, France, Australia and Canada.
