Honey, no one is checking for Normani. She is so 2019.March 27, 2021 at 12:14 am #1204160648
I feel like Normani will be like Chloe x Halle in terms of success.March 27, 2021 at 12:27 am #1204160663
is Coi Leray eligible? I’m not familiar with her but she currently has a song in the top 30March 27, 2021 at 8:04 am #1204160940
Morgan Wallen will be %100 blocked out of BNA. The comittee would never let that happen.March 27, 2021 at 8:10 am #1204160944
Best New Artist contenders:
March 27, 2021 at 8:30 am #1204160953
- Olivia Rodrigo
The Kid KAROI
Other contenders: Ava Max, Gabby Barrett, Ashe, Summer Walker, Orville Peck, Rina Sawayama, King Princess, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Dominic Fike, Dermot Kennedy, Moses Sumney, Joji, Masked Wolf, Beebadoobee, Kim Petras, Julien Baker
BNA is always a tough one to predict as every year the Recording Academy decides to nominate 1 or 2 artists who are actually new and then about 6 who already came out with music 8 years ago. I will only be guessing Olivia Rodrigo and Arlo Parks for now.
FYC | Best music of 2021 so far:
Arlo Parks - Collapsed In SunbeamsMarch 27, 2021 at 8:46 am #1204160972
I think Normani is eligible for BNA. 5H was never nominated nor was Normani for any solo work.
Although this was a long time ago and rules might have changed, Lauryn Hill was nominated for BNA after being part of The Fugees. So, there is precedent.March 27, 2021 at 9:01 am #1204160997

camila wasn’t eligible and normani has already had 2 huge top 10 hitsMarch 27, 2021 at 1:29 pm #1204161501
If I were Rina Sawayama’s team, I’d be forcing her to do another XS style dance pop single and paying some TikTok teen to pick it up for a twenty second dance challenge. She feels inches away from a Doja Cat type explosion from social media.March 27, 2021 at 4:39 pm #1204161761
Not sure if he’ll be eligible but this is a very strong debut
Carey Mulligan for Best ActressMarch 28, 2021 at 1:08 am #1204162182
Olivia Rodrigo could pull a Billie/Lizzo/Lil Nas X (GF including BNA), or a Lewis Capaldi (SOTY, no BNA) and become ineligible. That’s why she needs to put more music out (above DL level) so that she doesn’t lose the attention so quickly and remains in the spotlight until voting season.
Lorde had an entire album out in 2013 and was nominated in BPVA, Pop Solo, SOTY and ROTY for the 2014 awards, but missed out on a BNA nomination. But yes, more music helps.March 28, 2021 at 1:26 am #1204162186
