Cardi B and Post Malone Ineligible for Best New Artist at Grammys 2019

Cardi B and Post Malone have been ruled ineligible for the 2019 Grammy Award for Best New Artist, the Associated Press reports.

Cardi B and Post Malone have been ruled ineligible for the 2019 Grammy Award for Best New Artist, the Associated Press reports. Cardi was disqualified because of her previous nominations, according to the AP. (She was up for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for “Bodak Yellow” at the 2018 Grammys; Kendrick Lamar won both awards for “HUMBLE.”) In addition, a source familiar with the situation told the AP that Cardi was submitted for the 2018 Best New Artist award; Cardi was not nominated, and the award went to Alessia Cara.

Despite no previous Grammy nominations, Post was deemed ineligible in a vote by industry figures, according to the report. They determined that he has surpassed the status of a “new artist” because of the immense success of his 2016 studio debut Stoney, which included the hit singles “White Iverson” (platinum in January 2016) and “Congratulations” (platinum in March 2017). Pitchfork has contacted Cardi B and Post Malone’s respective representatives.
