WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RECORD AND SONG OF THE YEAR?.
“Have you ever wondered the difference between record and song of the year? (People have been asking that question since the days of Domenico Modugno.) Record of the year honors a specific recording of a song; the award goes to the artist, producer, engineer/mixer and mastering engineer. Song of the year honors the song itself; the award goes to the songwriter.” —————————————————————
“Cardi B & Bruno Mars' “Please Me”: This old-school soul ballad, which has climbed as high as No. 3 on the Hot 100, could put both of these veterans back in the finals. Cardi B is vying to become the first female rapper to be nominated twice in this category. She was a finalist earlier this year for "I Like It." This would be Mars' sixth nom in this category, a showing equaled or bettered in Grammy history only by Frank Sinatra, who amassed seven noms. (Moreover, Mars would have secured all six noms in the space of 10 years -- 2010-19 -- which would match Sinatra's pace; the legendary singer got his first six record of the year noms from 1958-67.) Mars is also a possibility for "Wake Up in the Sky," a collaboration with Gucci Mane and Kodak Black. For her part, Cardi B is also a possibility for "Money," which she performed on this year's telecast.”
