As of this writing, “Barbie” by Greta Gerwig is the second-highest grossing movie of the year and may soon take the top spot. In addition, the movie’s themes of feminism and masculinity have generated a tonne of memes and cultural debate. The success of “Barbie” can be directly attributed to the soundtrack, which was created by Grammy and Oscar winner Mark Ronson. While the soundtrack has been releasing tracks since late spring, the singles have taken off now that the film is out, with several even reaching the top of the Spotify charts in several different nations. The collection may be ready to win a Grammy now.
The album contains several songs that hope to receive nominations. For instance, “Barbie World” by Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice, and Aqua spent several weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and was the number-one song on the US Spotify charts. The song could be submitted to Best Melodic Rap Performance or Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, but its category placement is still unclear. This will depend on whether Minaj’s team would like to break up genres — she already has other potential rap candidates “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” and “Princess Diana” — as well as what the genre screening panel does with it. Last year Minaj’s smash “Super Freaky Girl” was shifted from the rap division to Best Pop Solo Performance by the genre panel.
Speaking of which, two pop songs from past general field champions might also be in line for a Grammy win. The soundtrack’s most moving moment is Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” It has become a huge streaming success. The album’s debut track, “Dance The Night,” by Dua Lipa, is a huge nu-disco smash that is rising in the charts. Both tracks are probably going to be included in the pop category, but it’s not clear if Lipa will be vying for Best Pop Solo Performance or the recently established Best Pop Dance Recording. Both songs might be nominated for awards in the general field if they continue to rise in the Hot 100’s rankings. The tracks are also the front-runners for Best Song, most likely. created for
The entire album is another option. It is obvious that “Barbie” is our current front-runner for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media with such success as a record, debuting at number-two on the Billboard 200 only 500 units away from the top spot. The album’s inclusion of prestigious collaborators also helps. The aforementioned Mark Ronson has won seven Grammy awards total, including distinctions in the categories of general, pop, and visual media. The song “Shallow,” which was co-written by Ronson and fellow producer Andrew Wyatt, has been nominated for Song of the Year twice and won a Grammy once. Furthermore, no other soundtracks throughout this eligibility era have actually come close to matching “Barbie’s” popularity. So keep an eye out for the album of the year bid too
