Will she get her second GRAMMY?
Since then, countless fans have been wondering why Ariana Grande with her number one album “Positions” was not nominated for the GRAMMY at the 63rd awards. But it is not really surprising. Every artist had to apply for the Music Prize of the Year between 1 and 24 July 2020. Their LongPlayer was only launched four months later and for this reason was not only put up for election in 2021. Instead, Grande submitted her collaboration single “Rain On Me” with Lady Gaga and was nominated in the category “Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group.”
Will the women’s power duo be able to prevail in the end against Taylor Swift and Bon Iver, BTS and Justin Bieber and Quavo, among others? We will find out on March 15, 2021.
