Carley’s Corner: Grammy Awards Predictions


Carley Nail, Arts & Entertainment Editor

The Grammys are upon us, which means it’s time to argue with the TV when the Recording Academy’s winners are announced. Although my picks rarely ever ring true, here are a few of my predictions.

New Artist: Tobe Nwigwe

Nwigwe is an artist that consistently surprised me. His raps are subtle but hold so much weight. Many of his songs tend to have religious elements, and he never seems to shy away from important topics. 

Album: ‘Harry’s House’ by Harry Styles

“Harry’s House” might be the obvious pick, but it’s an album that gets better with time. The album is well developed but has unique elements that you wouldn’t get from anyone else but Harry Styles. It’s easy listening with a complex story.

Song: ‘All Too Well (10 Minute Version)’ by Taylor Swift

I can’t think of another song that I would willingly listen to that is 10 minutes long. The original “All Too Well” was sad enough, but this version leaves me sobbing almost every time I listen to it. With her powerful lyrics and vocal performance, any listener can tell that the song was created with precision and magnitude.

Record: ‘Woman’ by Doja Cat

This is a tough category, but “Woman” is the clear winner for me. This song has so many different elements that make it stand out in the rap genre. The femininity that “Woman” captures is represented elegantly. It’s simply a beautifully crafted song.

Pop Solo Performance: ‘Bad Habit’ by Steve Lacy

“Bad Habit” quickly became one of my favorite songs from last year. It keeps the listener engaged, and it has meaningful lyrics at its core.
