Dua Lipa and Jess Glynne lead nominees for 2019 BRIT Awards

Dua Lipa, Jess Glynne, and Anne-Marie lead the acts competing for honours at the 2019 BRIT Awards.

New Rules hitmaker Dua, who won twice at last year’s (18) bash, is up for four awards – all in the British Single and British Artist Video of the Year categories, as her track IDGAF and One Kiss, her collaboration with Calvin Harris, are nominated in both.

Jess is up for the British Female Solo Artist prize, while These Days, her song with Rudimental, Macklemore, and Dan Caplen, will compete for British Single and British Artist Video of the Year. Her song I’ll Be There is also in the running for the British Single section.

Anne-Marie is another four-time nominee, notably for the prestigious British Album of the Year award for Speak Your Mind. She is also up for British Female Solo Artist, and her track 2002 is shortlisted for British Single and British Artist Video of the Year.

The other nominees for the Album of the Year honour are George Ezra’s Staying at Tamara’s, Jorja Smith’s Lost & Found, Florence + the Machine’s High as Hope, and The 1975’s A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.

Jess and Anne-Marie’s rivals for British Female Solo Artist are Florence + the Machine, Jorja Smith, and Lily Allen, while Ezra will take on Sam Smith, Giggs, Aphex Twin, and Craig David for the equivalent male prize.

Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz, The 1975, Little Mix, and Years & Years are up for Best British Group.

Among the non-British artists to receive recognition in the international categories are Drake, Ariana Grande, The Carters (Beyonce and JAY-Z), Cardi B, Christine and the Queens, and Camila Cabello.
