Let’s Take a Listen: 2017 ‘Grammy Nominees’ Album

January 29, 2017

It’s almost Grammys time again! You know what that means: artists shedding both happy and sad tears about the awards show results. Just kidding (…kind of), it means we can take a look (or listen!) at the nominated songs. The 2017 Grammy Nominees hit iTunes recently, giving us a taste of what’s to come at the the 59th annual Grammy Awards premiering on Feb. 12.

Pop-stars Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato are both featured on the album. Grande’s song “Dangerous Woman” is up for Best Pop Solo Performance, while both the album as a whole and Lovato’s “Confident” are contenders for Best Pop Vocals Album.

Another particularly dangerous woman found on the album is Beyoncé, who has more nominations than any other artist this year.  Her song “Don’t Hurt Yourself” is included on the album of nominees, alongside songs of other artists such as Drake, Sia, twenty one pilots, The Chainsmokers, Kelsea Ballerini, Sturgill Simpson and Lukas Graham.

Justin Bieber, who (finally) won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording last year, is nominated once again. His song “Love Yourself,” which is in the running for Song of the Year, also appears on the album. I’m sure you’ve all heard it on the radio over and over again, but let’s face it, it never gets old. Purpose is also nominated for both Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocals Album.

Numerous country artists and songs are highlighted as well, many of which are nominated for Best Country Solo Performance, including Carrie Underwood’s “Church Bells,” Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” Brandy Clark’s “Love Can Go to Hell,” Miranda Lambert’s “Vice” and Maren Morris’s “My Church.” For those of you who really want to get your country on, this year’s Grammys album certainly has you covered.

Hopefully, you’re just as excited for the show as we are! It’s sure to be a good time, no matter what kind of music you like or who you’re rooting for. Is there a certain song, album, performance, or artist you want to see win? Tweet us at @weknowthedj or leave a comment below!
