    In the last 10 years, the winner of this category is a top 5 hit:

    2009 – Kings of Leon, “Use Somebody” (#4)
    2010 – Lady Antebellum, “Need You Now” (#2)
    2011 – Adele, “Rolling In the Deep” (#1)
    2012 – Gotye feat. Kimbra, “Somebody That I Used to Know” (#1)
    2013 – Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams, “Get Lucky” (#2)
    2014 – Sam Smith, “Stay With Me” (#2)
    2015 – Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk!” (#1)
    2016 – Adele, “Hello” (#1)
    2017 – Bruno Mars, “24K Magic” (#4)
    2018 – Childish Gambino, “This Is America” (#1)

    Bon Iver and H.E.R. are the only two nominees that did NOT hit the top 5.

    Realistically, the only songs that have chances to win are “Truth Hurts,” “Bad Guy” and “Old Town Road.”

    OTR is so winning. It was probably best for them to not include it in SOTY. It definitely has country support after its CMA win.

    “Hey, Ma” kinda grew on me. It’s a decent track.

    Get real!  “7 Rings” is NOT a close 2nd.  More like last place.

    1. Lil Nas X – 50%
    2. Billie Eilish – 30%
    3. Lizzo – 20%
    4. H.E.R. – 0%
    5. Khalid – 0%
    6. Post Malone – 0%
    7. Bon Iver – 0%
    8. Ariana Grande – 0%

    I don’t know what should happen for Lil Nas to lose this. It’s a lock for me.

    “bad guy” would be my choice. “bad guy” also seems the most likely to win, in my opinion. If not that, maybe “Old Town Road.”

    try to accept opinions/hunches of different people. behaving this way your whole life, you will only find rejection, pique & sadness… so, quoting one of your favorite lines of all time – “get real” honey 🙂

    I think “Old Town Road” is great, but I don’t think Lil Nas X has proven himself enough to get big 4 category success.

    I think “Truth Hurts” and “Bad Guy” are more likely because both Billie and Lizzo have put out successful, full albums and both seem to be primed to be around for a while.

    I could also see a win for Bon Iver because they are a seasoned act at this point.

    It’s a showdown between “Bad Guy” and “Old Town Road.” The biggest and most ubiquitous hit of the year vs. the breakout hit by the year’s most defining artist. Leaning towards “Bad Guy” since Billie has much better chances than Lil Nas X in AOTY and Best New Artist, and alternative hits do well in this category.

    “Truth Hurts” and “Sunflower” are long shots. Bon Iver, Ariana Grande, H.E.R., and Khalid are just along for the ride.

    I still got “Old Town Road” as the winner. I didn’t realize how acclaimed the song was and its massive success in undeniable. Its genre-bending and harmless. It’s not a cakewalk win if they want a complete Billie dominance, but I think some country voters will go for it as well. Its CMA win shows support. Plus, it would make a big statement to give a young gay black man a marquee category.
