Keeping it in the circle, last year’s “Best New Artist” winner, Meghan Trainor, has announced this year’s nominations for the 59th Grammy Awards on CBS. Jewish rapper Drake, whose latest album "Views" was released last spring, is leading the pack with eight Grammy nominations this year (one for every night of Chanukah perhaps).

Drake won four American Music Awards this year.
