    Get real, u can hate Justin but it has really big chances to win both. SOTY is usually won by songs whicj ends in top 10 on billboard year end, and only him and the HORRIBLE That’s what I like will stay there.

    I see chances in 1800… but it won’t happen.

    When i did read 4 44 i thank i was in AOTY, not song this MEGA FLOP.

    Despacito will sin something big, I think ROTY, but SOTY can’t be descarted. (We all know will win DG)

    Be realistic, when i saw predictions where u place Despacito at the last place, u lost all the validez. I can hate Kendrick and Bruno and see them getting AOTY.

    This category is a mess. Issues has no chance, 1-800 is just another social message filler, and Despacito is only here because it was so big. I think That’s What I Like wins this but I’d be sort of shocked to if 4:44 upsets it.

    Lmao you need to stop acting as if Justin Bieber were the centrepiece of Despacito. Despacito is a globally successful hit because of its catchy melody, Luis Fonsi’s silky vocals and Daddy Yankee’s energetic rapid verses. The whole song was already a huge Latin hit and Justin Bieber merely drew attention to Despacito by adding one English verse to it. So when we are considering Despacito’s possibility of winning Grammys, everyone’s focus is on Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. Nobody gives a fuck about Justin Bieber! He is a non-factor that does not play any role in improving or worsening Despacito’s chances at earning Grammy wins or nominations. Matter of fact, they could have submitted the original version without Justin and it’ll still be nominated here.

    So if anyone isn’t predicting Despacito to win, it’s not because they “hate” Justin Bieber. It’s simply because of the fact that Latin songs do not have a favourable record in the General Field yet. With that said, I think that Despacito is in 2nd place for SOTY, behind That’s What I Like.

    4:44 or 1-800-273-8255 wins. I can’t believe a song with 8 writers will win. Did each one write a verse? lol
    And the original version of Despacito has 3 writers, and the remix version has 6, 3 more just to write a little piece in English. You really don’t deserve win.

    Will win: 1-800
    Should win: 1-800
    Could win: That’s What I Like/Despacito

    I don’t like any of these songs. If they’re supposed to award them, let them at least award the one that has some thoughtful (but kinda try-hard) meaning.

    I really don’t like how they take this important subject to make such a desperate for a hit song. That “Who can relate?” line is insufferable. It just feels so superficial, like “hey look at me being socially conscious”. The only good thing about is Alessia and her verses.

    Despacito was such a big song that we could really just be overthinking it and it might walk away with both ROTY and SOTY… it just doesn’t look like any of the AOTY nominees has the potential to sweep

    I don’t think Despacito can win, it would be bizarre.

    But 1-800 is a threat to Mars, but as I want to believe that Kendrick is winning AOTY, they will give something big to Mars and this will be the award.

    I dislike Jay-Z but I hope to God he wins. Julia winning would be very random.

    The other 3 nominees suck. I like Despacito but the lyrics aren’t great.

    I don’t want 1-800 to win because I don’t like how people use social issues to win awards/money. It’s disgusting. And the “who can relate?” part is too much.

    Bruno is probably gonna win, but he doesn’t deserve it.

    Since the Grammys became very commercial in 2009, the winners in this category have been hits:

    2009 – “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” [#1]
    2010 – “Need You Now” (#2)
    2011 – “Rolling In the Deep” (#1)
    2012 – “We Are Young” (#1)
    2013 – “Royals” (#1)
    2014 – “Stay With Me” (#2)
    2015 – “Thinking Out Loud” (#2)
    2016 – “Hello” (#1)

    This bodes well for “Despacito” and “That’s What I Like.” I agree with PoweR. Bruno submitted the same way Beyoncé did in 2009.

    I think I’ve said it already, but this is SUCH a hard category to predict this year.

    Issues and 1-800 sound the most like what voters would get behind here, but both failed to receive pop field nominations.

    TWIL doesn’t have great lyrics, but it’s the biggest English language hit. And Despacito is the big question mark. How many non-Spanish-speaking voters are going to vote for a Spanish-language song in a songwriting category?

    Do not underestimate “Despacito” just because it’s in Spanish. That could be even more reason for a SOTY win. I wouldn’t be surprised if it wins here but loses ROTY.

    1-800 is the best bet: impactful lyrics, BMV nomination, peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has actually been impactful to suicide awareness. Plus, includes two BNA nominees. That way, they can give SZA the BNA Award without leaving Alessia and Khalid empty-handed. It’s made for SOTY. Issues and That’s What I Like both are pretty simple love songs that could get some votes. However, I believe that they could cancel each other. 4:44 is just not winning. It’s not popular or relevant enough. Despacito could surprise. However, it’ll probably win Pop Duo and ROTY, like Uptown Funk. Plus, I doubt the Grammy’s will award such a sexual song (translate the lyrics, you Americans). Btw, some people have brought up Despacito’s wins at the Latin Grammy’s. First, the Latin Grammy’s members aren’t necessarily the same as the Latin block in the Grammy’s. Both are different organizations. The Latin Grammy’s, though influential, aren’t super solid to predict winners, even in the Latin categories of the Grammy’s. Draco Rosa and Ricky Martin both won Grammy’s for Latin Pop Album while losing in the Latin Grammy’s. Even one of this years biggest winners, Vicente Garcia, which picked up 4 Latin Grammy’s, didn’t get a single nom this year. There’s very few correlation between both. Plus, Despacito isn’t the only Pop song nominated. Issues and That’s What I Like will get some Pop votes, and the Latin block can only go so far.   1-800 could get some Pop votes, as well as rap votes, and votes from Rock and Country fans, since it has a nice message and “real” sounding instrumentation.

    This year’s Grammy’s winners will depend on where the Rock and Country votes.

    When was the last time a SOTY winner was not nominated in its genre field?

    If this is truly a thing, “Issues” and “1-800” are out.
