The 2021 Grammy Awards will take place on 14 March

January 29, 2021

Here are all the tracks in the running for the Record of the Year Award.

The 2021 Grammy nominations were released back in November. The event was scheduled to take place on 31 January, but due to the coronavirus, it has been pushed back to a new date – 14 March. 

Trevor Noah will be hosting the evening, which is taking place on 14 March. The Grammys have not yet confirmed who will be performing at the event, probably because they are not yet certain about what regulations will need to be adhered to. The event will be broadcast exclusively on American network CBS, M-Net, however, will broadcast a stream of the event locally.

The most coveted award of the evening is the Record of the Year prize. We’ve compiled a list of all the tracks in the running for this accolade. 

Black Parade – Beyoncé

Beyoncé dropped this track at the height of the BLM campaigns around the world. Fans immediately loved it and it has a tough, powerful message at its core.

Colors – Black Pumas

Not many people know the Black Pumas group before this song was released. They did receive a nomination at the 2020 Grammy’s, but no one really paid attention to them. After the song, people started following their musical journey, and now that they have made it onto the Grammy’s “golden list”.

Rockstar – DaBaby feat. Roddy Ricch

This track instantly climbed international charts and was shared thousands of times on social media. In 2020, DaBaby had a great time. He performed at several awards shows and even managed to pump out this number.

Say So – Doja Cat

Doja Cat was lucky enough to have TikTok lead to the popularity of this song. We have to admit, it is pretty catchy too. Although slightly newer to the music scene, she is a force to be reckoned with.

Everything I wanted – Billie Eilish

Last year, Billie won just about all the awards at the Grammy’s, including Record of the Year. This year, her new song is again competing for the crown title. She recently got major press for doing the song for the Part 2 Special of Euphoria.

Don’t Start Now – Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa is arguably one of the most popular artists in the world at the moment. Her songs are catchy, memorable and she releases a lot of them in the space of a year!

Circles – Post Malone

Post Malone needs little introduction. Fans know him as a very versatile artist and when he drops a new song, his fans go bos.

Savage Remix – Megan Thee Stallion feat. Beyoncé

This song was also made popular largely due to TikTok. Beyoncé’s performance in the hit naturally helped it reach even more people. That being said, Megan’s songs usually cause a stir in the music industry because they are so good!
