The BRIT Awards 2024 release music nominations

The nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards were this afternoon revealed in a 30-minute special streamed on social media.

The winners – who will each receive an award designed this year by visual artist and painter Rachel Jones – will be revealed at The BRIT Awards with Mastercard on Saturday 2nd March at The O2 arena, broadcast live on ITV1, STV, STV Player and ITVX.

Taking the title of the most nominated artist in a single BRITs year, RAYE leads the charge with an incredible seven nominations in total – a first by any artist since The BRITs began in 1977, eclipsing the record to date of six held by Gorillaz (2002), Craig David (2001) and Robbie Williams (1999).

Dua Lipa last performed at the gong show in 2021. Central Cee and J Hus both receive four nominations, with Central Cee up twice for Song of the Year.

Nominees for Album of the Year include Blur, Little Simz and Young Fathers, who each receive three nominations in total. Also up for three awards are Calvin Harris, Dave and Olivia Dean.

Damian Christian, Chair of the BRIT Committee for 2024:

“This year’s BRIT nominees really highlight the incredible breadth and diversity within British music. From breaking artists to returning greats, and with artists spanning so many genres, this year’s shortlist really feels like it has it all. I’d like to congratulate RAYE on her record-breaking seven nominations, as well as every other artist up for an award – I hope to see you all on the night!”
