Grammy Predictions 2019

If Album of the Year is the biggest prize a musician can win when looking at a full body of work, Record of the Year is the same when it comes to a single track. Tus, naturally Forbes.com made a list of this year’s Grammy Winners and we could not agree more!

February 6th, 2019

Winning Record of the Year tells the musicians, producers, mixers and engineers behind the tune that they made the single that defined the year and that will be remembered for a long time to come…and while sometimes one cut does stand out from the rest, typically, it’s hard to determine what that is.

Here are the nominees, who we believe deserve to win the most, as well as the nominee we think, will actually take home the honor. The winner will be named at the sixty-first annual Grammy Awards, which air on Sunday, February 10 on CBS.

Record of the Year

Nominees:

Brandi Carlile – “The Joke”

Cardi B – “I Like It (ft. Bad Bunny and J Balvin)”

Childish Gambino  – “This Is America”

Drake – “God’s Plan”

Kendrick Lamar – “All the Stars (ft. SZA)”

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper – “Shallow”

Post Malone – “Rockstar (ft. 21 Savage)”

Zedd – “The Middle (ft. Maren Morris and Grey)”

Should Win: Childish Gambino – “This Is America”

Will Win: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper – “Shallow”

This year, eight excellent songs are nominated for Record of the Year, and they range from acoustic singer-songwriter-style pop-rock to electronic dance music to hip-hop…so what’s going to end up bringing home the honor?

If we were picking the winners, we’d give the trophy to Donald Glover, known in the music industry as Childish Gambino, for his incredible one-off single “This Is America.” The song came out of nowhere on the weekend in the middle of 2018 when the actor/musician was hosting Saturday Night Live, and from the moment it was unleashed, it was a major smash. Not only is “This Is America” an excellently crafted piece of music that the masses can enjoy without thinking (should they choose to), it also makes important points about police brutality and race relations in this country (should everyone hearing it decide to accept the message it’s conveying). It’s timely and vital, and if any one track sums up 2018 in every way, it’s “This Is America.”

Also, it’s worth mentioning that “This Is America” was so popular upon arrival, it debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, which remains a rare feat. Only half of the nominees topped the chart, and one didn’t even reach the listing.

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
