Here's why Post Malone can't win a Best New Artist Grammy

Post Malone

Nominations for the 2019 edition of the awards show will only be announced on December 5 but we already know that Cardi B and Post Malone will not be facing off to crown the "Best New Artist". The new rules for "Best New Artist" state that any artist that has received previous nominations is disqualified from running. In Cardi's case, her ineligibility stems from the fact that she earned Grammy nominations in the past - she nabbed Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance nods for "Bodak Yellow" at the 2018 Grammys.

For the first time ever, next year's Grammys will allow for eight, not five, Best New Artist nominees.

Post Malone was also submitted for best new artist at this year's show but didn't garner a nomination. It's one of the only nights where artists are awarded for making the best (or mainly the most popular) music in the world.

While he has never been nominated, the issue was that the Grapevine, Texas native, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, has had hit singles over the past three years, including 2015's Congratulations and White Iverson, as well as 2016's Stoney.

Hurricane Michael Has Arrived
The areas that took the brunt of the storm are spread out, officials said, with very few access points where they can receive aid. Michael was blamed for at least two deaths: a man in Gadsden County died when a tree fell and a girl in Seminole County, Georgia.

Malone lost in a vote by music industry players - ranging from executives to producers to publicists - and will not compete for the coveted honour.

The first round of voting for 2019 Grammy nominations is set to begin October 17.

The Grammy rules for best new artist additionally state that an artist can be eligible up to three times for the award, as long as they have released only three albums or 30 songs.

Sources told the AP that Grammy officials and music execs went back at forth on whether or not to let Malone contend for the best new artist at the 2019 Grammys. Cardi B is also ineligible for the award.
