I love Rain on Me and I think it is a lock for a nomination in ROTY, but I think it has no chance in SOTY. There are just so many writers on it that it may be overlooked, there have been songs with more writers that got in but not many

Can or will both “The Box” and “Rockstar” make the ROTY line-up or will the BRP only choose one???
Originally I thought yes, both could get in as both are multiple-week #1 hits. Now, as time has passed, I’m not so sure. It would make sense to honor just “Rockstar” since it’s a “2 birds with 1 stone” choice honoring both Roddy & DaBaby, but “The Box” is the year’s longest running #1 hit.
With “Savage” in the mix, will the BRP nominate 3 rap/hip-hop tracks for ROTY?
Roddy Ricch is in the same position Drake was in 2016. “One Dance” was slightly bigger than “Work” but the latter had 2 superstars on 1 song. I suspect “Rockstar” could get in over “The Box” for that very reason.

Honey, the blue-ribbon committee will only choose one: either “The Box” or “Rockstar.” NOT both. I’m leaning more towards “The Box” in Record of the Year since it was the bigger hit.November 11, 2020 at 10:31 am #1203829498
Summer Walker, H.E.R. and Chloe x Halle are all present in SOTY/Songwriter’s Award at the Soul Train Awards. Keep an eye out for Playing Games, Do It, I Can’t Breathe and Slide.November 11, 2020 at 10:38 am #1203829509
“I Can’t Breathe” is definitely making into both SOTY and ROTY. With some possibility of winning R&B Song.November 11, 2020 at 10:41 am #1203829516
hadn’t Hard Place also been nominated for both categories last year, I would be 100% sure about I Can’t Breathe. I could see it only receiving a SOTY nominationNovember 11, 2020 at 5:54 pm #1203830403
“The Bones” won Single of the Year and Song of the Year at the CMAs awards and it’s the 3rd biggest female hit of the eligibility period. Maybe it will be nominated in the General fieldNovember 11, 2020 at 11:59 pm #1203830907
The Bones just won both Single and Song of the Year at the CMAs (only 5 songs did so in the last 20 years). She is the second female to win these two prizes for the same song. Maren was also the most awarded artist of the night.
I have been telling you for months that she is a strong contender. The Bones is definitely showing up in the GF.November 12, 2020 at 3:01 am #1203831077
Honey, H.E.R. is NOT a Grammy darling. She’s a committee pick. She can easily lose in the R&B Field again.November 12, 2020 at 3:12 am #1203831085
After the CMAs (and Soul Train nominees), I’m very confident that “The Bones”, “Blinding Lights” and “I Can’t Breathe” will be the repeats in the GF, showing up in both ROTY and SOTY. I don’t see anything other than that.
In my predictions, “Don’t Start Now” and “Circles” – and “Shameika”, maybe? – are showing up in ROTY only. I have “Adore You” in SOTY only, as a safe songwriting choice kinda like “In My Blood” and “Lover”. You could argue that it can show up in both categories given its radio success, but SOTY seems more fitting for this type of song.November 12, 2020 at 5:56 am #1203831238
Adore You feels more like a ROTY nominee than a SOTY.November 12, 2020 at 6:12 am #1203831269
If they split Harry’s appearances then ROTY is more likely.November 12, 2020 at 10:00 am #1203831833
