The Grammys: Soundcloud projects become eligible for award nomination starting 2018

The 2018 edition of the Grammys will birth nomination of Soundcloud music releases as championed by Chance The Rapper. Soundcloud music projects  have now become eligible for a Grammy beginning 2018 thanks to Chance The Rapper’s consistent push for the cause.

Chance The Rapper had questioned why The Grammy organizers (Recording Academy) only acknowledged commercially sold records for nominations, when their intended goal was to reward quality music being put out.In an age where Soundcloud was getting more users, it didn’t make sense to artists such as Chance.

Going forward, The Grammys after taking heed to Chance the rapper’s views, have reviewed and decided on letting Soundcloud albums such as that of Chance’s “Coloring Book” be eligible for nominations. He had tweeted earlier in 2016 saying the victory was for every artist putting great work on Soundcloud and the likes.

The new rules goes thus, that any album released physically, via downloads or streams will be eligible, the music must be streamed on a service that hosts multiple artists, has existed for at least a year and has paid subscription, and of course the music must be original (not infringing on another work’s copyright).
