In 2019 the recording academy decided to expand the top four general field categories — Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist — so there are eight nominees in the top category instead of the previous five, and the field includes formidable past Grammy champs Taylor Swift (“Folklore”), Coldplay (“Everyday Life”), Dua Lipa (“Future Nostalgia”) and Jacob Collier (“Djesse Vol. 3”). And there are past Grammy nominees itching for their first victories: Jhene Aiko (“Chilombo”), Black Pumas (“Black Pumas”), HAIM (“Women in Music Pt. III”) and Post Malone (“Hollywood’s Bleeding”).
