Best New Artist 2017

With this year’s nominations for Best New Artist I was pleasantly surprised with Kelsea Ballerini’s nomination and the Chainsmokers, but was rather disappointed that Cam didn’t get nominated.  I find the Chainsmoker’s nomination rather intriguing because they never actually released a full-length album…

Anyway, the nominees are:

  • Kelsea Ballerini
  • The Chainsmokers
  • Chance the Rapper
  • Maren Morris
  • Anderson .Paak

Who Should Win: The Chainsmokers

The Chainsmokers have come a long way since “#Selfie” with hit songs “Don’t Let Me Down (feat. Daya)” and “Closer (feat. Halsey).”  Their work has been rather refreshing and 2016 was really their year, so I’d say they deserve the Grammy.

Who Will Win: I have no idea

I really don’t know who could win, they seem so even.  If I had to choose, I’d guess the Chainsmokers, but for some reason I have a gut feeling Anderson .Paak may win…I’m not really good at guessing this category.
