The nominees for the 59th annual Grammy Awards were announced Tuesday morning and the internet is wasting no time on reacting to all the big news.
Not surprisingly, Beyoncé leads the group with a total of nine nominations for her landmark album, Lemonade.
Kanye West and Drake follow with eight nominations each for The Life of Pablo and Views, respectively.

Chance the Rapper made history Tuesday with his streaming only mixtape, Coloring Book, being the first in the academy's history to be nominated for the award after the Grammy Awards officially changed their eligibility rules this year. "Glory be to God. I'm nominated for 7 #grammys. Thank you to everyone who worked on Coloring Book, I love you," Chance tweeted about the news.

Ok the fact that @chancetherapper has 7 nominations is proof God exists and that you don't need to sign a label if art is what you produce— Lil Max (@bravostydia) December 6, 2016
