The 2015 Grammy nominations rolled in! We've gathered all of the artists who got a nod for the best rap and R&B music of 2014. Since one of the Grammy's top prizes is the "Best Urban Contemporary Album," we've combined both genres under the "urban" umbrella... just go with it! There are a bunch of great 2015 Grammy nominees listed here, so we're asking you to go through this list of favorites and give a little thumbs up to the artists, albums, and songs that you loved in 2014!

Who will get the 2015 Grammy for Best Contemporary Album? Will it be award-show favorite Pharrell? The controversial nominee Chris Brown? Or will Queen Bey once again reign supreme? More importantly, what type of hat will Pharrell wear this year and how will he ever be able to outdo his 2014 look?

There are many established artists – Toni Braxton, Eminem, Usher – competing with up and coming rap and R&B phenoms, so be sure to give the newbies a vote if you know and love their music.
