Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie lead nominations as women dominate Brit Awards shortlist

Women have dominated this year's Brit Awards shortlist, with Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie both earning four nominations.

Lipa, 23, collected two nominations for British single and two for British artist video of the year.

Last year Lipa secured five Brit nominations - one more than Ed Sheeran received that year following the release of his third album Divide.

Anne-Marie, who shot to fame after featuring on Clean Bandit's Rockabye alongside Sean Paul, is also handed four nods, including one for British female solo artist.

Last year's critics' choice award winner, Jorja Smith, returns to claim an impressive three nods for British album, British female solo artist and British breakthrough act.

Drake and Eminem are both nominated for international male, as is American jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington, a surprise entry.

An especially strong international women's category sees Ariana Grande, Cardi B and Camila Cabello compete for the prize.

In the international group category, established names like Beyonce and Jay-Z (The Carters) and Nile Rodgers & Chic face competition from up-and-comers 21 Pilots

The Brit Awards will take place on February 20 at London's O2 Arena.
