    “That’s What I Like” has 8 songwriters. Wtf? Did it sample something?

    Hard to say. I could see it going to any of the nominated songs except 4:44. My initial guess is Bruno.

    This is the only category in the General Field I think Jay Z has an outside shot at lol. If he wins itd be first ever Rap song to win this category thats more prestige enough that he needs.

    Im going out on a limb and say 4:44 wins SOTY.. shocking.

    But lets give this to Despacito. The song was inescapable. And if we ere going by The Grammy standards for the last 9 years the SOTY winner has peaked at either #1 or #2 on the Hot 100. Only two songs in this category has this to their credit and those are Despacito and Thats WHat I Like. It would be weird to bet against those 2 picks.

    I would’ve said Bruno before I found out the song has 8 writers. It’s actually funny that a rap song has the least writers in this category, I’m not sure that’s happened before.

    I reckon it could be any of them – 3 BNA nominees, 2 AOTY nominees and Despacito.

    I would predict Jay-Z, but if he was nominated for “The Story of OJ”. “Despacito” seems like the frontrunner to win.

    Despacito is the frountunner. SOTY is usually won by a song who finished in top 10 in billboard year end, and despacito will be the only who will end in the top. As excepcion we have Royals, that didn’t enter in top 10 at the year end chart.

    Bruno is easily winning. Worst set of nominees though. But I am glad they snubbed Sheeran.

    Yeah I could see anyone except Jay-Z here. I’m leaning towards Bruno Mars.

    WHAT A JOKE. THIS IS THE WORST SONG OF THE YEAR LINEUP I HAVE SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

    I can’t believe how many other great songs missed out for this crap fest. I’m so tired of “message songs” like 1-800 getting into categories like this simply because of the message. There is no great songwriting happening here. “Issues” is cute, but really? Better than “Better Man”, “Too Good at Goodbyes”, “Tin Man”, “Location”, “Million Reasons”, etc etc etc?

    Ugh. I’d say it’s between “Despacito” and “That’s What I Like”, with a slight edge to “That’s What I Like”.

    I’m predicting the “issue” song to win SOTY (no, not actually “Issues”): “1-800-273-8255.”

    Who would have thought the nominated rap song would have the least amount of songwriters? Lol Maybe we are underestimating Jay-Z’s chances…

    This has gone to either a #1 or #2 hit in recent history, so I believe this is between “That’s What I Like” and “Despacito,” two pretty lightweight songs.

    “1-800” has a nice sentiment to it, especially with all that has gone on this year, but it also failed to get a genre nomination, so I’m not convinced it has the support to win.

    “Issues” is basically “I Took a Pill to Ibiza,” no chance whatsoever. Another song with no genre support.

    “4:44” is not nominated for Best Rap Song but Best Rap Performance instead (and “The Story of OJ” is not nominated for Best Rap Performance but is up for ROTY), which is weird in my opinion. Would this really be the first rap song winner here? It’s such an insignificant song outside of the lyrics.

    “Despacito” can also make history by being the first Spanish-speaking song to win, but that may hurt it as well.

    The Grammys LOVE Bruno. It took 8 songwriters to come up with “That’s What I Like,” which is scary in itself, but that didn’t stop it from being nominated. The others are laden with songwriters, so it probably won’t matter.

    I see “Despacito” (or “Redbone) winning ROTY and “That’s What I Like” winning SOTY.

    I feel like Bruno would be the only decent winner in this category.
