If you’re planning on placing a wager on this year’s Grammys you might want to check out the latest data from Deezer. Based on streams, they’ve found out there would be some unexpected artists walking away with trophies.
Most disconcertingly they found that:
Meghan Trainor would win Best New Artist if The Grammys were based on global streams
Fetty Wap would beat Kanye West, Common and Kendrick Lamar for Best Rap Song with more than three times the number of streams as Drake who comes in second
In the Album Of The Year category, The Weeknd would triumph with Beauty Behind The Madness while James Bay would walk off with the gong for Best Rock Song for his track “Hold Back The River”
If we had our way every Grammy would go to Carly Rae Jepsen for E•MO•TION but the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences never bothered to ask us.
