    You have a point. 8 songwriters is a lot. In this case I’d say ‘1-800’ has a chance because of the social message and because it has 4 songwriters in which 3 of them are the singers

    It has 5. Andrew Taggart from The Chainsmokers was added to the list of credited writers shorty after the nominations came out.

    It’s really ironic that rap songs usually get the most flack for have the most songwriters (thanks to sampling), but “4:44” has the least amount of songwriters, with “1-800” next in line.

    Honey, I never understood why having a lot of writers is a bad thing. No shade, but sometimes it takes a team of people to craft a song.

    Personally I do not care if a song has one or ten songwriters while the result is good. But the Grammys have made it clear that the number of writers and producers does matter.

    I wouldn’t care about the quantity of songwriters if the result was a masterpiece. But let’s be real, in general you see the lyrics and then check the songwriters and an unavoidable thought comes to mind: ‘so many people to write THIS?’. It’s clear that someone just changed two or three words. So sometimes it matters.

    Are we underestimating “Issues?”

    I’m betting on “That’s What I Like,” but I could see “Issues” pulling off an upset based on its competitors. “Issues” sounds the most like a typical SOTY winner, no?

    Julia Michaels has worked with a lot of people in the industry and is respected as a songwriter. “Despacito” and “1-800…” are two divisive, overplayed songs that will both undeniably have a lot of support, but neither are particularly critically acclaimed, especially for their lyrics. TBH I bet a lot of people had to search for “4:44” to hear what it sounds like… “The Story of OJ” would’ve done better here.

    Or I can be totally wrong and voters LOVE “Despacito” and it sweeps its categories.

    It wouldn’t be smart to bet against the big hits here.

    Since 2009, the award has gone to a #1 or #2 hit. “Despacito” and “That’s What I Like” fit that.
