It’s almost time for the Grammy Awards, which means it’s that time of year when murmurs about submissions gain volume.
As widely known, the ceremony is hailed as the apex of the music industry and is renown for transforming careers.
The 2020 instalment takes place on January 26th and looks set to be one of the most fiercely contended Grammys yet.
For, with some of the industry’s’s heaviest hitters dropping music within the eligibility window, it’s clear there’ll be big wins and controversial losses.
As the show draws near, insiders have shared a look at who submitted what for some of the most coveted categories.
Join us after the jump…
Per Hits Daily Double, here’s what some of your faves and ours entered for Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year:
Beyonce: Spirit for SOTY and ROTY
Taylor Swift: Lover for SOTY, You Need To Calm Down for ROTY
Ariana Grande: 7 rings for SOTY, thank u, next for ROTY
Lady Gaga: Always Remember Us This Way for SOTY and ROTY
Billie Eilish: bad guy for SOTY and ROTY
For those wondering what the difference is: Song Of The Year is a songwriters honor, while Record Of The Year salutes the recording.
Historically, a track that wins one tends to have a major shot at nabbing the other. However, it’s by no means a guarantee.
What’s more, recent times have seen select artists strategise submissions (with different songs) so as to win in both. Case in point, Bruno Mars who bagged Record for ’24k Magic’ and Song for ‘That’s What I Like.’ It seems as though Taylor Swift has embraced a similar motive.
In any case, while more info trickles in about the Grammys 2020, what do you think of the current submission tea?
