Never Really Over doesn’t look like it’s free falling on Spotify like other recent releases. It’s projected to debut at #12.
I think once it’s on heavy rotation it can become a hit. I’d be happy if she wins Best Pop Solo. The fact that she still has 0 Grammy’s to this date when Dua Lipa has 2 is a bit unfair.June 6, 2019 at 1:26 pm #1202926189
Dua Lipa is for real one of the most overrated nowadays singers. She has 2 Grammys, the same amount as Katy, Miley, Ariana, Demi, Selena and Justin Bieber together!!! She is on Bebe Rexha level except that Bebe Rexha writes her songs (Dua didn’t write New Rules- her only hit in US) and that Bebe has a better career than her. I don’t see the appeal in Dua Lipa- she has no stage presence and her voice is average at best.June 6, 2019 at 1:30 pm #1202926197
Lol. Katy should have released dance songs when everyone was winning Grammys in that categoryJune 6, 2019 at 1:36 pm #1202926203
“Dancing With a Stranger” passes 1B streams on all platforms, Pop Duo/Group nod is practically a certain at this point.

Darlings, I don’t like Katy Perry, but I absolutely love Never Really Over. She won.

You all are hyping up the Katy Perry song way too much. It’s not even a week old. It’s too soon to even tell if it will be nominated, much less win.June 6, 2019 at 8:25 pm #1202926630
I hope Katy Perry’s new song isn’t nominated. Are we sure she can handle another loss? She may end up being the biggest loser in Grammy history :/
At one point, homegirl kept dragging her poor old granny out to every red carpet as some kind of good luck charm. And even then, it didn’t work.
She needs to jump on a song with Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder, Adele, JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Tisha Campbell, & Hologram Whitney Houston if she wants to win.

Yeah, Jo Bros are definitely getting that Pop Album nod.
I kinda think a slot might go to Barbra Streisand, too? I don’t think Walls qualifies for Traditional Pop Album, and it got good reviews, “first original material in ages” hype, and it had relevant sociopolitical themes.June 7, 2019 at 7:54 am #1202927060
Streisand’s album is most likely regular Pop Vocal Album. I doubt it gets nominated, to be honest. On top of the album being a commercial flop, there’s not a whole lot of love for her among voters. She hasn’t won a competitive Grammy in over three decades.
Partners losing Traditional Pop Album a few years ago was pretty damning. It was hugely successful and a big comeback for her. By the numbers, it SHOULD have beaten Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s album.

Babs is a legend, but I feel like the voters in BPVA are over her. Walls may have gotten good reviews, but it is negated by the fact that it flopped commercially.
Can she really get a nod over, say, The Jonas Brothers? I doubt it.June 7, 2019 at 11:59 am #1202927342
This is how I’d rank the Pop Vocal Album contenders by likeliness. For the sake of discussion I’ll also be including a few borderline releases that may end up in other genres but could possibly place here.
Top tier – almost definitely getting nominated
Billie Eilish – When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Ariana Grande – Thank U, Next
High tier – likely
Jonas Brothers – Happiness Begins
P!nk – Hurts 2B Human
Ed Sheeran – No. 6 Collaborations Project
Upper-mid tier – possible
Backstreet Boys – DNA
Khalid – Free Spirit
Lizzo – Cuz I Love You
Lower-mid tier – less likely, but possible
Sara Bareilles – Amidst the Chaos
Benny Blanco – Friends Keep Secrets
Imagine Dragons – Origins
Maggie Rogers – Heard It in a Past Life
Mark Ronson – Late Night Feelings
Various Artists – The Greatest Showman: Reimagined
Low tier – long shots
BTS – Map of the Soul: Persona
The Chainsmokers – Sick Boy
Miley Cyrus – She Is Coming
Carly Rae Jepsen – Dedicated
Madonna – Madame X
Barbra Streisand – Walls
