    Honey, as I previously said, Jay Z got this in the bag. Stop thinking about it.

    The line-up is so shitty that even pop voting members will feel compelled to vote for 4:44 in the second round.

    Jay-Z would be the most deserving winner of this bunch, but he by far has the least well known song of the nominees. And a rap song hasn’t won this category before. He’s dead last in my predictions (unfortunately).

    Didn’t know Bruno’s song had 8 writers. That’s just ridiculous. It makes me predict something else, but what?

    Despacito can’t win this. Can’t see this Issues girl winning.

    I guess it’s between 4:44 and 1800.

    We’ll see in a few months…

    Yeah the 8 writers makes me want to change my prediction too.

    But 4 of the writers are part of a group (The Stereotypes) so it’s really 5 acts I guess. They are also nominated for Producer of the Year.

    Five writers are still a lot.

    What in the Kim Kardashian is going on here! These nominees are awful.

    “Despacito” is just here because it’s a massive hit. It’s not winning. “Issues” isn’t strong enough. “1-800-273-8255” doesn’t fit the mold of previous winners. “That’s What I Like” will get its reward in the R&B field. No rap song has won here. However, that will change. Jay-Z has never won in the General field and is a Rap icon. He’s getting some kind of lifetime achievement award. It all makes sense that he’s the first rapper to win this award.

    SHOULD WIN: No one
    WILL WIN: “4:44”

    I agree. Actually looking at it closer, three of the other 5 are also a group called Shampoo Press and Curl. So it’s kind of a collaboration between 3 “acts” if that makes it better. Still it would be weird to have 8 people go up on stage to win a song writing award.

    It’s been years since Latinos have been represented in the general field. Despasito will win this or Record of the Year.

    Yeah, this has become a weird category. It’s more a game cancellation. Voters aren’t gonna vote for lyrics they don’t understand. Bye “Despacito”. Julia Michaels? I get the nom, but no, no win, for a low level hit from a low level artist. “That’s What I Like”? Maybe. But how this s**t has shaken out, Bruno is a major player in both ROTY and AOTY so I don’t see him winning here.
    1-800 has a solid chance just cause of its message, but Logic winning this category seems like a longshot over JAY-Z.
    I didn’t even predict him as a nominee, but the lyrics of “4:44” are amazing. But how hilarious is it that JAY-Z’s response to “Lemonade” will win in a major category but Beyonce didn’t? LOL. The optics aren’t going to be great.

    No weirder than Adele and Taylor Swift going onstage to accept Album of the Year alongside a swarm of producers.

    One song vs. one album with 10+ songs

    There is a difference.

    Single Ladies had 4 songwriters, I think Bruno is still winning.

    Still a bit surprised that Million Reasons isn’t here, but 1-800 is probably getting this. Despacito and Issues aren’t getting this. That’s What I Like shouldn’t be considered, but does have a chance considering the Bruno love this year. 4:44 could win if they wanna go all “we wanna make it up for Lemonade/Formation losing last year” (aka why Jay is even prevalent in the big 3 this year).

    Will Win: 1-800 or That’s What I Like

    Should Win: 1-800

    Should Win: That’s What I Like (Bruno Mars)

    Will Win: That’s What I Like (Bruno Mars)

    I think that 1800 and Issues didn’t get enough votes but were put in by the Blue Ribbon Committee. 1800 doesn’t deserve to be here – good message but it is extremely cringe-worthy musically.

    I don’t think Jay-Z will win any General Field categories. He probably has a better shot at Rap categories, even with competition from Kendrick Lamar.

    The real competition is between Despacito and That’s What I Like. Bruno Mars is a hot favourite for this category – he has been nominated 3 times previously (Forget You, Grenade, Locked Out of Heaven). And That’s What I Like is easily one of his catchiest and most uplifting entries. I think “That’s What I Like” will garner universal support, even from the more conservative rock/country voters (given that Despacito is kinda like a novelty song). It’s really time for Bruno Mars to win. And who cares if there are 8 songwriters on the song?
