Skepta, Little Mix and Rihanna lead the way in this year’s nominations.
Little Mix, Skepta and Rihanna are out in front in the nominations for the 2017 BRIT Awards, with three nods apiece ahead of this year’s ceremony.
Skepta, who scooped the 2016 Mercury Music Prize with fourth album Konnichiwa, is up for British Male Solo Artist – up against the likes of David Bowie and Craig David – and British Breakthrough Artist.
Konnichiwa itself is up for the big one, Album of the Year. It’ll need to see off The 1975’s I Like It When You Sleep…, Bowie’s Blackstar, Kano’s Made in the Manor and Michael Kiwanuka’s Love & Hate.
