Takeover Tuesday Playlist: Danielle Bradbery's Favorite Grammy Nominees, From Ariana Grande to Travis Scott
Welcome back to Takeover Tuesday, where each week, Billboard taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on whatever subject they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.
Though Danielle Bradbery is making waves in country, the 22-year-old singer’s personal music taste spans across all genres. Frankly, so does her voice, as Bradbery recently released an impressively powerful rendition of Ariana Grande’s “God Is a Woman.”
Grande is one of the many Grammy-nominated artists Bradbery admires, and with this year’s awards just over a week away, the country star decided to dedicate her Takeover Tuesday playlist to her favorite 2019 Grammy nominees. “The Grammys should be very exciting this year with this lineup!” Bradbery exclaims.
Along with “God Is a Woman,” Bradbery included songs that received nods themselves, like Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey’s record/song of the year nominee “The Middle” and Travis Scott’s best rap song/performance “Sicko Mode.” She shouted out a few best new artist nominees too, picking smash hits like Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” and H.E.R.’s “Best Part,” as well as deep cuts like Luke Combs’ “Must’ve Never Met You.”
The rest of the playlist’s 16 songs include Post Malone’s impassioned “Fall Apart,” Maroon 5 and Cardi B’s smash hit “Girls Like You,” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Space Cowboy.” Bradbery also showed some extra love for Shawn Mendes, including both his Shawn Mendes hit “In My Blood” and sultry album cut “Where Were You in the Morning.”
