    “Find U Again” and “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” would probably both be considered pop by the Grammys.

    Find U Again might sneak into Dance Recording like Electricity did last year.

    “Electricity” has a traditional house arrangement and was expected to compete in the dance field.

    “Find U Again” is a synth-heavy pop song.

    That said, his album should be in contention for Pop Vocal. The pop field usually has one or two “wtf” nominees and he could be one of them.

    True, however I find it almost impossible that an album that didn’t even crack the top 60 on Billboard makes it into the Pop field.

    I know this is a complete crack dream, but does anyone else really hope to see Sigrid represented somewhere in the Pop Field? I recently got into Sucker Punch, and was completely blown away by it. Definitely Top 5 albums of the year for me.

    I would also love to see “Strangers,” “Don’t Feel Like Crying,” or “Mine Right Now,” get some love. Not expecting any of them too, but the first two were moderately popular so I don’t think it’s COMPLETELY impossible.

    I think the only thing holding her back is voters straight up not knowing about her, which is a shame. I hope to get proved wrong, because I think she deserves more than most people currently in the conversation.

    That is true, but at the same time, last year we had two non-hits (like they didn’t even chart) on Pop duo and Pop Solo. They seem to like older acts.

    I don’t think Señorita is getting nominated. The song is not good, the success isn’t organic and I really think they’ll think that Shawn and Havana were already “rewarded” with their previous noms this year. Actually you get a hit when your song is full of whispers, you have crazy amounts of Spotify payola, and both singers pretend to be dating right after the song is released. The generic “La La” and “Na Na” lyrics wouldn’t work without all of that.

    It’s not happening. Pop Vocal Album only has surprises like that when it’s an veteran artist, and the last time it happened was in 2016(James Taylor).
    Critically acclaimed new acts like Sigrid and Troye Sivan are always ignored, even Lorde was and she had okay sales and a great Grammy history(2 wins, 1 for Song of the Year). And the same happens with the Pop categories in general.
