Posty would be easily the youngest artist in Grammy history to land record of the year nods three years running.
Post Malone's "Circles" has been a fixture in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 since it debuted in September -- for 31 consecutive weeks. As my colleague Gary Trust pointed out Monday (April 6), it's just two weeks away from tying the all-time record for most weeks in the top 10. Beyond its commercial success, the shimmering smash is widely regarded as one of the year's best singles. It seems increasingly likely that it will wind up with a Grammy nomination for record of the year.
This would be the third consecutive year that Posty has been nominated in that marquee category. He was nominated two years ago for "Rockstar," featuring 21 Savage. He was nominated this past year for "Sunflower," his collab with Swae Lee.
Post would be the first artist to land a record of the year nomination three years running since Steve Winwood accomplished the feat every year from 1986-88. The Englishman won the 1986 award for "Higher Love" (with a backing vocal by Chaka Khan) and was nominated again the next two years with "Back in the High Life Again" (backing vocal by James Taylor) and "Roll With It."
