    What do you think is the most important thing a song/album need to win a Grammy? Sales? Acclaim? Safe? Risky? Or Impact? What do you think?

    An artist(s) needs all of those things in order to win a Grammy.

    I’ll rank them in order of importance:

    – Sales
    – Impact
    – Acclaim
    – Safe
    – Risky

    Dying or being around a subject who was dead used to work like a charm.

    Depends on the particular field tbh.

    In GF they look for musicianship, craft, instrumentation, acclaim, and status.

    Rap they based wins purely on status and sales.

    I think sales is down on the list. Consider AOTY winners Beck, Herbie Hancock, Steely Dan, Arcade Fire, etc. Not huge sellers pre (or post for some) Grammy. And the smaller categories can have winners with minimal sales. Of course popularity plays a part but I don’t think as much as you would think. nobody is going to win AOTY with an utter crap effort. We all know a lot plays into it and it is rarely “the best”, but it is what it is. (and I hate that saying)

    A benefit concert for retail both physical and online with some trophies handed out here and there so they can change sets?
