Grammy 2018: Who Will Win Best New Artist?

  /  01.25.2018

Mariah Carey, Adele, Alicia Keys, and Chance the Rapper have all won the coveted Best New Artist Grammy. Who will follow in their famous footsteps on Sunday?

As Music’s Biggest Night approaches, Rap-Up continues its Grammy panel discussion, a four-part conversation presented in partnership with WAV Media.

Following debates about Record of the Year and Best Rap Album, our panel of experts—Bongo ByTheWay, Devi Brown, Claude Kelly, Chuck Harmony, and Bridget Kelly—takes on the Best New Artist category.

This year, the competition is stiff. SZA, who leads all women with five nominations this year, is taking on a group of breakout stars that includes Alessia Cara, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, and Julia Michaels.

But who will come out on top? Our panel debates the possibilities and offers predictions below. Find out which one of those picks was correct on Sunday (Jan. 28), when the 60th Annual Grammy Awards airs live from New York.
