At least they keep it in the family.

On Tuesday, Beyoncé tied husband Jay-Z as the artist with the most Grammy nominations in his career.

On Tuesday, the rapper topped the all-time Grammy nominations list with 83, followed by Sir Paul McCartney with 81, Quincy Jones with 80 and Beyoncé with 79.

Beyoncé added nine to her total after the nominations were announced, including album of the year for “Renaissance” and record of the year and song of the year for “Break My Soul.”

Her project also helped her husband add to his total as he earned five additional nominations, including as one of the songwriters for “Break My Soul.”

Jay-Z will be competing against himself for song of the year, as he is also nominated in that category for DJ Khaled’s single “God Did.”

It wasn’t the only record Bey snagged.

With his record eighth nomination of the year, he broke the tie with the legendary Frank Sinatra, who earned seven nominations in this category during his career.

The superstar also made first appearances in a few categories, with “Break My Soul” and “Renaissance” helping her land her first nominations in the Best Dance/Electronic Recording and Best Dance/Electronic Album categories, respectively.

With 28 wins to date, Beyoncé is the most awarded female artist in Grammy history. Should she win four of the nine nominations she has been nominated for, she will become the most awarded artist of all time, overtaking director Sir Georg Solti, who has won 31.
