Beyonce rules again, tops NAACP Image Award nominations

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Beyonce leads the field in the NAACP Image Award nominations, but there’s a friendly rival close behind: sister Solange.

It was announced Tuesday that Beyonce received seven nominations for the 48th annual Image Awards, including entertainer of the year, outstanding female artist and best album, for “Lemonade.” Last week, she topped the Grammy Award nominations with nine bids.

Solange received five Image Award nods, including for female artist and best album, “A Seat at the Table.”

Other top nominees include Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar with four bids each. The Feb. 11 ceremony will air on TV One.
