On the new Pop Shop Podcast, we discuss artists who have been releasing music since at least the 1980s who have a shot at new Grammy nominations.
When the 2022 Grammy Awards air in January, we could see some very familiar faces onstage.
On the latest episode of the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, we discuss some veteran acts — artists who have been releasing music since at least the 1980s — who could be eligible for Grammy nominations at the next awards show. Everyone from 25-time winner Stevie Wonder to Diana Ross (who has never won a competitive Grammy) released new music during the eligibility period for next year’s show (Sept.1, 2020 to Sept. 30, 2021), with Wonder dropping two new songs in October — “Where Is Our Love Song,” featuring four-time winner Gary Clark Jr., and “Can’t Put It in the Hands of Fate,” with nominees Rapsody, Cordae, Chika and Busta Rhymes — while Ross’ new album Thank You is due Sept. 10.
Then there’s 20-time winner Bruce Springsteen, whose Letter to You album arrived in October, or 18-time winner Paul McCartney, who released two projects that could find their way to a nomination: his McCartney III studio album in December and its subsequent alternative remix album McCartney III Imagined, featuring guest stars Beck, St. Vincent, Phoebe Bridgers, Dominic Fike and more.
