Spotify Grammy Award Predictions

In just a few short days, the 57th Annual Grammy Awards will air on CBS, highlighting the best songs, albums and artists of 2014. In anticipation of the show, Spotify has sorted through its mountains of data in order to predict the winner from each of the main categories.

DON’T MISS: Spotify is coming to your PS4

“To predict the winners, Spotify compiled global data on the top streamed songs, albums and artists in each of the categories,” says the company in a press release. “Additionally, Spotify analyzed the listening habits of its 60 million users worldwide to look at the most viral songs, albums, and artists in those categories to predict the possible ‘dark horses.'”

These are Spotify’s picks (well, technically they’re your picks):

Grammy favorites, based on total Spotify streams

  • Record of the Year: Chandelier, Sia
  • Album of the Year: X, Ed Sheeran
  • Best New Artist: Sam Smith
  • Song of the Year: Chandelier, Sia

“Dark Horse” picks, based on virality

  • Record of the Year: Chandelier, Sia
  • Album of the Year: G I R L, Pharrell Williams
  • Best New Artist: Bastille
  • Song of the Year: Take Me to Church, Hozier

You can see the top 5 from each category on Spotify’s website.

Interestingly, Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off managed to sneak in as the fifth most played song of the year, despite being taken off the streaming service before the end of the year.

As Spotify puts it: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
