Will Beyoncé Finally Win Album of the Year Grammy With ‘Cowboy Carter’?

As Jay-Z pointed out at the Grammys in February, Beyoncé has been nominated for album of the year four times but has never won — despite the fact that she’s the awards show’s winningest artist of all time, taking home 32 trophies from 88 nominations.


On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), Katie & Keith are talking about whether her brand-new Cowboy Carter album could break that losing streak in the Grammys’ top category. So far, it’s feeling like a critical and commercial success story that has all the makings of a top album of the year contender. But of course, the eligibility year (Sept. 16-Aug. 30) is young. We even still have new project from the reigning album of the year champ, Taylor Swift, coming later this month.

Listen to the new podcast below to hear our full conversation about Beyoncé’s early Grammy chances, as well as what song could be the next single following the seven-week Hot Country Songs chart-topper “Texas Hold ‘Em.”

Also on the show, we’ve got chart news on how Future and Metro Boomin debut atop both the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Hot 100 songs charts, how Hozier is suddenly back in the top 10 on the Hot 100 for the first time in nine years with his gone-viral hit “Too Sweet,” and how five songs from Olivia Rodrigo’s new expanded deluxe edition of her Guts album debut on the Hot 100.
