The nominees for the 2023 Grammys have been revealed, and in a musical season that is already full of surprises, it is a very interesting year. Of course, there has been plenty of buzz surrounding Grammy considerations, from Beyoncé submitting her Renaissance tracks for the dance/electronic categories to Silk Sonic declining to submit their music at all this year.
