The BRIT Awards with Mastercard have announced the nominees for 2024, which sees RAYE make history as the most nominated artist in the same year.

The nominations list for BRIT Awards 2024 is their biggest yet, with over 98 artists involved. It has also been announced that Dua Lipa will perform at the awards ceremony on 2 March.

Of the highest nominees, J Hus has four nominations including, Album of the Year (Beautiful and Brutal Yard), British Artist of The Year, Best Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act, and Song of the Year ("Who Told You" featuring Drake). Little Simz has three nominations and sees herself up against J Hus for all of them, excluding Song of the Year.

Meanwhile, Song of the Year is packed with 15 nominations, including the likes of Casso, Raye and D Block's "Europa", "Let Go" by Central Cee, who also has his collaboration with Dave in the ringer. Raye is also nominated twice, including "Escapism" on which she linked up with 070 Shake. Dua Lipa's Barbie soundtrack feature "Dance the Night", and PinkPantheress' "Boys A Liar", is also included.

RAYE is nominated for a record breaking seven awards, including British Album of the Year, British Artist of the Year, Best Pop Act, and Best New Artist.

The BRITs increased the number of nominees for both Artist of the Year and International Artist of the Year from five to ten, a change aimed at improving representation and inclusion. More than half (55%) of the 2024 BRITs nominations feature women – either as a solo artist or as part of an all-woman group. This figure rises to 57% when including women in mixed gender groups.

A new genre award category R&B Act has been introduced for 2024, along with Alternative/Rock Act, Dance Act, Pop Act, Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act.
