Swift is also nominated in the International Female Solo Artist category ahead of the 2021 ceremony, her sixth Brit Award nomination to date.
“Taylor’s career is unprecedented and his music and influence have resonated with millions of people around the world,” the Brit Award statement said.

It was his third chart-topping album in just 259 days.
There will be an audience of 4,000 at this year’s event, hosted by Jack Whitehall, as part of the government’s live events pilot program.
