    I decided to open this thread to share what my thoughts on what the title issue would result in. I’m sure this must’ve been discussed on this site before at length, but scrolling through past threads I didn’t see anything like it so far.

    Here’s my take: I am for artists being limited to one submission with one song. I’m not sure how I feel about albums yet, but for songs, I definitely support it.

    What I feel this achieves in the long run is that it’ll force artists to diversify their work if they want to achieve as many Grammy nominations/wins as possible.

    It also would, in my opinion, open room for more artists and songs to climb up the Grammy ladder.

    What are your thoughts?

    As for opinions, I think this would make sense, but artist should be allowed to submit to 1 category per field. There’s no reason why a song can’t be nominated in ROTY + Pop Solo

    My opinion is that it wouldn’t feel right and doesn’t make sense. Why would you restrict artists to what they want to submit if it fully fits the description for their category? Like this situation only works for pop or popular artists.

    RIP SOPHIE

    Not sure about this. What happens when a pop artist submits one song in Pop, another in R&B, another in Rock, another in Dance and another in the Folk song categories?

    Should the screening committees for those categories accept them, or should they send them back to pop where they’ll break the one submission rule and get removed from the first round voting list altogether?
