    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.

    Not counting Adele in 2012 (Someone Like You was nominated in Pop Solo) and two artists who were nominated in performance categories for their albums, the last time it happened was with Billy Joel’s Just the Way You Are in 1979. ROTY and SOTY were his only nominations that year; he won both.

    Honey, watch out for “4:44” here. This is the perfect category where voters can reward Jay-Z.

    It’s possible. It’d be another Bey situation since he’s nominated for a different song in ROTY. The song also has the least amount of songwriters. Still, don’t see it. SOTY goes to big songs. “4:44” was not that. I think “Despacito” could win here.

    I don’t think it’s really important for 1-800. It’s not a good song imo, but its impact is enough to get the award

    In order of likeliness to win:

    Despacito
    That’s What I Like
    4:44
    1-800-273-8255
    Issues.

    I want Despacito to win here even though as a song 1-800-273-8255 is the most poignant choice. Kesha’s “Praying” was robbed of a placement here.

    Honey, “Issues” is definitely in last place. I will eat crow if “Issues” win. “1-800-273-8255” is an awful song. It reminds me of “See You Again.” I doubt it wins. Based on the last eight winners, “Despacito” or “That’s What I Like” will probably be the victor.

    I have no idea.

    1-800 is the most “typical” winner of the category, but the artists behind it are too “irrelevant” to win a GF award. Issues isn’t that successful and Julia is a new artist. 4:44 is a rap song. Despacito and TWIL are the bigger hits but they aren’t like the typical SOTY winners. I think TWIL would win if it wasn’t for the real possibility that Bruno wins AOTY, they wouldn’t give him 2 GF awards, or at least I don’t want to believe that.

    This is the hardest category to predict this time, not even one of the five nominees feels like a potential winner, for different reasons.

    Is “1-800” really a “typical” winner?

    It’s just like “Same Love” and “See You Again,” and those lost.

    I’m pretty convicted that ‘That’s What I Like’ will win, I feel it will pull a Single Ladies.

    Anyway, SOTY is the most boring category of this year. None of the songs really deserves to win.

    The only reason why I’m not convinced that Bruno is going to win is the fact that the song has 8 songwriters and in the last two decades no song has won with more than 4 songwriters.

    ‘Beautiful Day’ ‘Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own’ ‘Not Ready to Make Nice’ ‘Viva la Vida’ ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’ ‘Need You Now’ and ‘We Are Young’ had 4 songwriters, and almost all those songs are from groups, only with the exception is ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’

    80% of this year’s nominees have 5 or more writers, so that trend is very likely coming to an end. I don’t feel that voters care about how many writers a song has.

    You have a point. 8 songwriters is a lot. In this case I’d say ‘1-800’ has a chance because of the social message and because it has 4 songwriters in which 3 of them are the singers

    I didn’t say it was a typical winner because of the message thing, but because it’s a slow song. It’s closer to the typical winners of the category than the other four nominees.

    I’m not sure TWIL having 8 songwriters matters – every writer other than Bruno appears to have only been listed by name because production teams can’t submit as a single entity for a writing award.

    The song was co-produced by Shampoo Press and Curl, and the Stereotypes, and the 7 co-writers are literally just the members of those groups. Honestly, without considering awards, I think it makes sense to credit them all.
