    Is Alessia Cara still eligible? This might be a good year for her to swoop in if she still is.

    Sampha just won the Mercury Prize. I have long thought that he could be a contender, but I am also doubtful that him, Khalid, and SZA would all be able to make it in.

    Cashmere Cat has had a great year producing for artists like Halsey, plus his debut album (which came out this year) had two minor hits with “Trust Nobody” ft. Selena Gomez & Tory Lanez, and “Quit” ft. Ariana Grande and co-written by Sia. He definetely has the connections, since artists like Kehlani, Jhene Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign and Ariana Grande are in his album (all Grammy nominees)

    He also produced a good portion of The Weeknd’s Starboy album.

    I’m going to mention Marshmello. One year on the scene & he made the Forbes list of highest paid EDM acts ($22 million).

    Revised list of BNA candidates on my list:

    **Aminé
    **Brett Young
    **Cardi B
    **Chris Janson
    **Chris Lane
    **James Arthur
    **Jon Pardi
    **Julia Michaels
    **Kane Brown

    **Kodak Black
    **Kyle
    **LANY

    Some of my questions marks who might be too established? or maybe had too many tracks/albums to be eligible? or maybe have submitted multiple times before? or disqualified due to previous nominations? Let me know if anyone has thoughts on eligibility for these artists:

    Alessia Cara
    Bryson Tiller
    Halsey
    Kehlani
    Old Dominion
    Zara Larsson

    She is elegible for a BNA nomination, however I don’t know if she’ll get it. Her breakthrough was late 2015 through 2016. 2017 has been a great year for her, but I don’t know if she’s still considered new

    In country music we have artists like Midland, Carly Pearce and Brett Young who are new, as well as people like Jon Pardi and Lauren Alaina who are not exactly “new” but who had their breakthrough this past year and would be eligible. I personally would love to see Midland nominated… they are a bit “old school” and have great buzz in Nashville coming out of their first #01 on country radio. In terms of success (being critically and commercial), Jon Pardi would be the best choice… he’s on his way to get a 3rd #01 in a row and his album got some pretty enthusiastic response from both critics and the general public.

     

    Agreed. Midland and Jon Pardi are considered as the Next Big Thing of country music. If NARAS voters heard enough of them they can sneak in. They should campaign hard.

    FOR YOUR GRAMMY CONSIDERATION: WHERE DOES ALESSIA FIT?
    http://hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=308428

    Cara was passed over for a Best New Artist Grammy nod last year, despite being a very worthy contender. And although we think she should have been nominated last year, and inside sources have told us that she was voted into the Top Five, there is no reason that we can find to eliminate her from this year’s consideration.

    Perhaps Julia Michaels, SZA and Khalid aren’t quite as safe as we think. I could see Alessia Cara getting a nomination and displacing Julia or another potential nominee.

    Thanks for directing me to Hits Daily Double. I remember now that they were very helpful last year, and they have this helpful overview of the Best New Artist race:

    http://hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=308269

    They say Migos and Lil Uzi Vert are ineligible because they’ve released to much music, but I wonder how the recording academy is counting them. Are EPs and mix tapes the same as “albums” in their eyes? Does something self-released or independently released with less exposure count the same as a major label release? I could see someone toiling away for a few years releasing their own music online until a big break with a major label gets them widespread exposure. The Grammy rules would seem to deem such an artist ineligible for Best New Artist.

    This might be the Grammys’ most confusing year for this category just in terms of eligibility since I’ve been following them.

    If Alessia Cara is nominated, she will easily win.

    Khalid and SZA should be safe bets for nominations. The final 2 spots are completely up for grabs.

    To be eligible in the category of Best New Artist, an artist, duo, or group:

    * Must have released a minimum of five singles/tracks or one album, but no more than 30 singles/tracks or three albums in their career to date.
    * May not have entered into this category more than three times, including as a performing member of an established group.
    * Must have achieved a breakthrough into the public consciousness and impacted the musical landscape during the eligibility period.

    https://www.grammypro.com/grammy101

    I suspect that anything that is not classified as part of an “album” will be counted as “tracks”. Perhaps Migos and Lil Uzi Vert have too many “tracks”.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lil_Uzi_Vert_discography

    It does seem a bit unfair on some of the smaller artists who might have released a large number of tracks (including collaborations?) and then find mainstream success at a reasonably young age, only to find that they are no longer eligible.

     

    The “established group” rule, means Harry Styles isn’t eligible.

    Dua Lipa has one album and handful of singles, so she should be fine.
