At the midway point of the year, who are your early favorites to win Artist of the Year, Single of the Year and Best New Artist?
|Mike Miller, WZFT: Drake, “The Middle” Zedd f/Maren Morris, Bazzi.|
Jonathan Reed, WNOK: Post Malone, “New Rules” Dua Lipa, Bazzi.
Toby Knapp, WASH: Drake, “The Middle” Zedd f/Maren Morris, Bebe Rexha.
Mike McCoy, WNCI: Drake and Post Malone are running neck and neck for Artist of the Year. For Single I would go with “Girls Like You” Maroon 5 & Cardi B which is a very fast grower and “Psycho” is another strong candidate. I would I’d say Post Malone for Best New Artist as well even though he was around last year but he’s really making his impact this year.
Jammer, WEZB: Post Malone, “I Like Me Better” Lauv, Bazzi.
Rob Roberts, WRQX: Ed Sheeran, “Perfect” Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello.
Brian Mack, WXXL: Drake,”The Middle” Zedd f/Maren Morris / Grey, Cardi B.
Kobe, WWHT: Drake, “No Tears Left to Cry” Ariana Grande, Bazzi.
Jason LaChance, Radio Merced: Godsmack or Five Finger Death Punch, “Bullet Proof” Godsmack or “Sham Pain” Five Finger Death Punch, Bad Wolves came on strong with a great first single and a solid follow-up track.
|Java Joel, WAKS: Post Malone, “The Middle” Zedd f/Maren Morris, Cardi B.|
Jon Zellner, iHeartMedia: Post Malone, “Never Be the Same” Camilla Cabello, Best New Artists: Dua Lipa, Bazzi, Lauv.
JB King, KLUC: Drake, (tie) “God’s Plan” Drake and “Havana” Camila Cabello, Cardi B.
Jeff Hurley, WLAN: It’s Post Malone‘s year and we are all just living in it. “New Rules” Dua Lipa, the song that will not die in research, such a monster. Max for New Artist because he’s with a smaller label with less support and has achieved this level of success with hard work and relationship-building.
Rick Vaughn, Power 94.9: I don’t know which awards exactly, but the artists will be Post Malone, twentyone pilots and Dua Lipa.
Fish Boy, WKRZ: Cardi B, “Psycho” Post Malone, Dennis Lloyd as Best New Artist.
Heather Deluca, WSJO: Dua Lipa and Camila Cabello are in line for Best New Artist. For single of the year,”The Middle” by Zedd f/Maren Morris. And I’d love to see Imagine Dragons win Artist of the Year because of the success of their third album. But I think Camila could make a case for Artist of the Year because of her huge debut as a solo artist. But don’t rule out Ed Sheeran because “Perfect” is still on fire.
|Raphael Opida, WIOQ: Artist of the Year: Camila Cabello. She’s been on FIRE since ‘Havana’ and the release of her debut album Camila, and it looks like she won’t be stopping anytime soon! Single of the Year: “God’s Plan” by Drake. The song was bumping on the radio, at bars, clubs, even my grandma loved to jam to the track. Now we need baby pics, Drake! Best New Artist: Cardi B because she is literally everywhere, featured on tracks with Maroon 5 and Bruno Mars.|
Jonathan Shuford, WRVW: Post Malone, “New Rules” Dua Lipa, Bazzi.
Matt Johnson, KSLZ: Post Malone, “Psycho” Post Malone, Post Malone!
Sassy, WKXJ: Cardi B, for Single anything with Post Malone especially “Psycho,” BTS for New Artist.
Randi West, WMTX: Ed Sheeran and Pink, they will probably still be charted by year’s end!
Chase Daniels, Entercom-Madison: Maroon 5, “Perfect” Ed Sheeran, Alice Merton.
Chris Michaels, FM100: Shawn Mendes, “Meant To Be” Bebe Rexha & FGL, Max.
