2013 Grammy Awards Nominees: Winners and Losers
One Direction, Indie Labels, Frank Ocean and more
Winner: Def Jam / Island Def Jam
Cash Money... womp womp. Nominations leaders Kanye West and Frank Ocean are both DJ associates, thus earning a dozen nods between them. Nas, Rihanna and 2 Chainz garnered quite the collection as well. The song "Mercy" put Big Sean and Pusha T on the tally too. Jay-Z and West's combo for Watch The Throne was good for both, but particularly the major label group.
