Grammys 2017: Difference Between Record vs Song of the Year
Now that the 2017 Grammy nominations have been revealed, some fans want to know the difference in these two of the major categories: Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
If you didn’t know, Record of the Year is awarded to both the performer of the song, as well as the recording engineers who took part in the production of the song. The Record of the Year highlights the performance and the production of the song.
Song of the Year, however, is awarded to the writer of the song, not the artist that sings the song.
The nominees for Song of the Year are for the songwriters of Adele‘s “Hello, Beyonce‘s “Formation,” Mike Posner‘s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza,” Justin Bieber‘s “Love Yourself,” and Lukas Graham‘s “7 Years.”
