    GRAMMYs Rule Change: All credited producers, songwriters and engineers on an album are eligible to be nominees and winners in the Album Of The Year category.

    Previously they were required to be credited with at least 33 percent of the album’s play time to be listed as a nominee.

    Exactly. This can be discussed in the other Grammy threads.

    Wasn’t this rule literally only introduced in the past 3 or 4 years? Classic Grammy consistency.

    It means that H.E.R. (album) would not be nominated because it was a compilation of some previously released recordings.

    No, “newly recorded material” is considered anything recorded and released within the past five years. H.E.R’s songs were all recorded and released within two years. It would still qualify under these new rules.

    What the hell? This doesn’t make sense to me. Legit all I need do now is produced one track from say a twelve-track album to win Album of the fucking Year? NO! It’s a shit rule.

    What a joke. Someone gets credited for less than 10% of a song, or they do some of the production on one song and they can win album of the year. It just gets worse and worse each year.

    from say a twelve-track album

    With so many albums having 15-25 tracks these days, you can write 10% of one in 20 tracks which is 0.5% of the song writing on the album and win.

    Could this hurt albums that’s have an incredible amount of producers in the future?

    I don’t think so. There seems to be a bias against any albums with more than 5 producers and cowriters. The past three AOTY winners were made by small camps and have minimal features.

    There is difference. The current rule, which was introduced for the 2018 awards, required the winning producers, recording engineers, mixers and featured artists to have worked on 33% of the playing time of the album, in order to win the award. But that rule change also allowed AOTY to be given to songwriters for the first time and they also needed to contribute to 33% of the playing time.

    Back when 1989 and 25 won with a large numbers of producers and engineers, there was no 33% playing time requirement, but songwriters did not receive an award.

    The new rule will be a combination of both, where all the producers, engineers, mixers and featured artists win AOTY and so do all the songwriters.

    This could mean the largest number of nominees in history and depending on the winner, the largest number of people getting up on the stage to receive their award.

    Could this hurt albums that’s have an incredible amount of producers in the future?

    Just from the last decade, 21, 25, 1989 and Random Access Memories had large numbers of producers and engineers.

    But some of the albums that lost had even more, e.g. To Pimp a Butterfly, Lemonade and Purpose had a huge number of writers, producers and engineers.

    There are certainly going to be voters that see 50 people on the list of nominees and place their vote elsewhere. But to balance that out, almost all of those 50 people will vote for that album, and so will their friends and colleagues.

    I can’t wait for Blu Ivy to be credited as a songwriter/producer on Beyoncé’s next AOTY nomination.
