NEW YORK (AP/CBS) – Beyonce and Adele are competing in the top three categories at the Grammy Awards.

The Recording Academy announced Tuesday that Beyonce’s “Lemonade” and Adele’s “25” are nominated for album of the year, along with Drake’s “Views,” Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” and Sturgill Simpson’s “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.”

“Just as we see emerging musicians experimenting, we’re also seeing established artists resisting what’s expected of them and, instead, embracing the creative freedom they’ve been afforded through their success, blurring the lines between music’s mainstream and artistic edge,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy.

For song of the year, Beyonce’s “Formation” and Adele’s “Hello” will battle Lukas Graham’s “7 Years,” Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill In Ibiza” and Bieber’s “Love Yourself,” co-written with Ed Sheeran.

Beyonce, Adele and Lukas Graham’s tunes are also nominated for record of the year, competing with Rihanna and Drake’s “Work” and twenty one pilots’ “Stressed Out.”

Best new artist nominees are Chance the Rapper, Maren Morris, the Chainsmokers, Anderson Paak and Kelsea Ballerini.

The Grammys air live on Feb. 12, 2017.
