Liam Payne has hailed the power of British music as he earned two Brit Award nominations for his debut solo single.

In addition to well-received tracks such as No Lie, featuring dance-hall star Sean Paul, and Hotter than Hell, it was her sixth single New Rules that became a smash hit and catapulted her to becoming the most streamed artist on the music platform Spotify previous year. The 2018 ceremony is staged at The O2 on February 21.

The show featured performances from Liam, Paloma, Clean Bandit, J Hus and 2018 Critics' Choice victor Jorja Smith.

In the major United Kingdom artist categories, Sony Music and Warner Music are battling for the honours while Universal Music has performed strongly with global artists.

Will you be going to see her live?

His words were echoed by fellow nominee Jax Jones whose track, You Don't Know Me, featuring Raye, faces competition from Payne in the best British single category. The No.1 New Rules, which helped her become the most streamed female artist in the United Kingdom a year ago, is up for the British Single and Video.

Asked who he wanted to see victorious at next month's ceremony, the producer and singer said: "I wanna see Ed clear up like he's supposed to".

The best British band nominees are Gorillaz, London Grammar, Royal Blood, Wolf Alice and The xx.

Returning nominees for 2018 include Laura Marling, who now has five nominations including one win, Foo Fighters (seven nominations with four wins) Bjork (nine nominations including four wins) and Beck (10 nominations including three wins).

Former One Direction star Liam Payne is nominated for best single and video for "Strip That Down", which has now been a hit in the UK, Australia and US.

Singer Dua Lipa received the most nominations. Smith, who debuted at No.1 in the United States, may be hopeful of collecting the Global Success Award, which he previously won in 2015.

The Brit Awards were previous year dominated by David Bowie, who won two posthumous awards for best solo artist and best album for "Blackstar". U2 and Eminem appear to have been too late in the Q4 release calendar to make the nominations.

The victor of the British Artist Video award will be decided by the public, with one of the 10 acts eliminated each week until there are only five left on the night of the awards.

With 5 million sales worldwide from her one studio album, Dua Lipa is dubbed the next star to hail from the United Kingdom, as the only female British national to achieve a No 1 in the country since Adele in 2015.
