But his latest album “Graduation” is taking him to the top again as he leads the upcoming Grammy Awards with eight nominations including ‘album of the year’ and ‘rap album of the year’ for his album.

Following his lead is British singer Amy Winehouse with six nominations.

The 50th annual Grammy Awards is scheduled for February 10, 2008.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Apple’s iTunes is partnering with the Grammys to provide samples of the nominated songs in a password-protected area, presumably for voters to listen to the songs.

Additionally, Delta Airlines is debuting a Grammy-branded plane as part of its fleet for the next three years.
