Don't tell Mike Posner he's the odd duck in the 59th Grammy Awards Song of the Year category.
Yes, his "I Took A Pill In Ibiza" is up against stiff competition from Beyonce, Adele, Justin Bieber (for whom Posner co-wrote 2012's "Boyfriend") and Lukas Graham. But you won't find him waving a white flag.
"What's meant to be will be," Posner -- who was visiting his parents in suburban Detroit on Tuesday (Dec. 6) when the nominations were announced -- tells Billboard. "I'm incredibly grateful to be nominated. I think I deserve to be nominated. I think everybody else in the category deserves to be nominated. There were a lot of good songs this year. I'm not the only good writer, but I'm one of them. And it feels good to be recognized by other writers and other musicians and the people who vote for the Grammys and have them telling me my stuff doesn't suck. That's nice to hear from your peers."
