Congratulations are in order for Queen B: The 2015 GRAMMY Nominations are in, and Beyoncé has broken the record for netting the most nominations in the award shows' history for a female artist.

With 2015's nominations in hand—including nods for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Music Film (Beyoncé & Jay Z: On The Run Tour), Best R&B Performance (Beyoncé and Jay Z, "Drunk in Love"), Best R&B Song (Beyoncé and Jay Z, "Drunk in Love")—she's now amassed a grand total of 47 nominations so far in her career.

The previous title holder of that particular distinction was Dolly Parton, so Bey's in great company. She's currently tied with producer David Foster (or Yolanda's husband, for you Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans) as the seventh most nominated artist overall.

The GRAMMY domination is hardly surprising, seeing as Bey & Jay kicked off last year's GRAMMYs with a steamy rendition of "Drunk in Love." It's been the year of Beyoncé and the Carters at large, and we're just living in it.
