Grammys 2021 Predictions: Who Is Likely To Win What This Year?

It’s going to be one interesting evening!

The Grammys 2021 go down on Sunday, March 14 and the web is overflowing with predictions about who will win what.

As per experts, the Grammys 2021 will turn out to be a ladies’ night for the ladies will win big. It is being predicted that female artists will sweep the four major categories – Record, Album and Song of the Year and Best New Artist.

Beyonce bagged nine nominations, the most by an artist this year, and it wouldn’t be shocking if she goes home with at least four awards.

Dua Lipa is a predicted winner, given how her songs like “Don’t Start Now” got most people through quarantine. Megan Thee Stallion, on the other hand, was one of the breakout stars of 2020 and might win the Best New Artist category. Taylor Swift’s Folklore was also a huge success and is expected to win her a few Grammys.

Here are our predictions for the Grammys 2021

Album of the Year

  • “Chilombo” – Jhené Aiko
  • “Black Pumas (Deluxe Edition)” – Black Pumas
  • “Everyday Life” – Coldplay
  • “Djesse Vol.3” – Jacob Collier
  • “Women in Music Pt. III” – HAIM
  • “Future Nostalgia” – Dua Lipa
  • “Hollywood’s Bleeding” – Post Malone
  • “Folklore” – Taylor Swift

Swift is the only woman to have won the Album of the Year Grammy twice. Her 2019 album, Lover, received song nominations at the Grammys but was snubbed from the album category.

With Folklore, fans saw Taylor in a completely different light. She gave her music a new direction and that is unlikely to go unappreciated by the Recording Academy.

Record of the Year

  • “Black Parade”-  Beyoncé
  • “Colors” – Black Pumas
  • “Rockstar” – DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch
  • “Say So” – Doja Cat
  • “Everything I Wanted” – Billie Eilish
  • “Don’t Start Now” – Dua Lipa 
  • “Circles”- Post Malone
  • “Savage” – Megan Thee Stallion ft. Beyonce

When the Grammy Awards betting odds first came out, Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” ranked at the top for Record of the Year. There’s been little change in its status since then.

Song of the Year

  • “Black Parade” – Beyoncé
  • “The Box” – Roddy Ricch
  • “Cardigan” – Taylor Swift
  • “Circles” – Post Malone
  • “Don’t Start Now” – Dua Lipa
  • “Everything I Wanted” – Billie Eilish
  • “I Can’t Breathe” – H.E.R.
  • “If the World Was Ending” – JP Saxe ft. Julia Michaels

This will be a tough one with contenders like Beyonce and Billie Eilish. But let’s not forget, Swift was at the top of her songwriting game in her 2020 album.

Best New Artist

  • Ingrid Andress
  • Phoebe Bridgers
  • Chika
  • Megan Thee Stallion
  • Noah Cyrus
  • D Smoke
  • Doja Cat
  • Kaytranada

Given the year Megan has had and the massive success of her singles “Savage” and “WAP,” she will most likely sweep this category.

Best Pop Solo Performance

  • “Yummy” – Justin Bieber
  • “Say So” – Doja Cat
  • “Everything I Wanted” – Billie Eilish
  • “Don’t Start Now” – Dua Lipa
  • “Watermelon Sugar” – Harry Styles
  • “Cardigan” – Taylor Swift

All artists in this category are deserving and it will certainly be difficult to choose one, but we’re placing our bets on Dua.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance

Best Rap Performance

  • “Deep Reverence” – Big Sean ft. Nipsey Hussle
  • “Bop” – DaBaby
  • “What’s Poppin” – Jack Harlow
  • “The Bigger Picture” – Lil Baby
  • “Savage” – Megan Thee Stallion ft. Beyoncé
  • “Dior” – Pop Smoke

While we would love for DaBaby or Jack Harlow to win this category, the odds seem to be in Megan and Bey’s favour.

Best Rap Album

  • “Black Habits” – D Smoke
  • “Alfredo” – Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist
  • “A Written Testimony” – Jay Electronica
  • “King’s Disease” – Nas
  • “The Allegory Royce” – Da 5’9″

Best Pop Vocal Album

  • “Changes” – Justin Bieber
  • “Chromatica” – Lady Gaga
  • “Folklore” – Taylor Swift
  • “Future Nostalgia” – Dua Lipa
  • “Fine Line” – Harry Styles

Best Rock Album

  • “A Hero’s Death” – Fontaines D.C.
  • “Kiwanuka” – Michael Kiwanuka
  • “Daylight” – Grace Potter
  • “Sound & Fury” – Sturgill Simpson
  • “The New Abnormal” – The Strokes

It seems like the Strokes will hit the jackpot with their very first Grammy nomination.

Best R&B Performance

  • “Lightning & Thunder” – Jhené Aiko ft. John Legend
  • “Black Parade” – Beyoncé
  • “All I Need” – Jacob Collier ft. Mahalia & Ty Dolla $Ign
  • “Goat Head” – Brittany Howard
  • “See Me” – Emily King

Beyonce’s powerful and beautiful tribute to Black culture will definitely win this one.
