Dave tops 2022 GRM Daily Rated Awards nominations – Reuters
Dave leads the nominations for the 2022 GRM Daily Rated Awards with six nods.
The 24-year-old rapper’s LP, “We’re All Alone In This Together”, was nominated for album of the year at the ceremony celebrating the best of British rap and grime.
It will compete with his ‘Funky Friday’ collaborator Fredo’s ‘Independence Day’, ‘ALPHA PLACE’ by Knucks, ‘Reason to Smile’ by Kojey Radical, ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’ by Little Simz, ‘Chasing Euphoria’ by M Huncho, and “Green With Envy” by Tion Wayne.
Dave’s Stormzy collaboration from the record, ‘Clash’, received nods for Track of the Year and Video of the Year.
It will compete with itself in both categories as ‘Starlight’ is in contention for first prize and ‘Verdansk’ for second.
And the star is also up for Male Artist of the Year, which he will compete for with ArrDee, Central Cee, D-Block Europe, Digga D, K-Trap, M Huncho, Potter Payper, Russ Millions and Tion Wayne.
Aitch also picked up a slew of nominations with two tracks – “1989” and “Learning Curve” – for Video of the Year and the formidable “Baby” with Ashanti vying for the title of the year.
His pal ArrDee also picked up three nominations, with the ‘Oliver Twist’ hitmaker also up for mixtape of the year for ‘Pier Pressure’ and track of the year for ‘Flowers (Say My Name)’.
This year’s Female Artist of the Year nominees include Little Simz, Mahalia, Ms. Banks and Stefflon Don.
GRM founder Post commented, “I’m proud to return with our seventh Rated Awards and bring an even more incredible show to screens this year.”
The ceremony will take place in October in central London and will be broadcast exclusively on E4.
