Last month (November 23), Rodrigo was nominated for seven Grammy awards for ‘Sour’ and a number of its singles, including Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best New Artist.

After the nominations, it was revealed that The Recording Academy had rescinded the names of Taylor Swift, Jack Antonoff and Annie Clark – aka St. Vincent – as part of the list of nominees on ‘Sour”s Album Of The Year nomination.

Swift, Antonoff and Clark were originally listed as part of the credited writers for the nomination, given that Swift’s 2019 single ‘Cruel Summer’ was interpolated on Rodrigo’s top-five 2021 single ‘deja vu’.

Both Swift and Antonoff were also credited for Rodrigo’s song ‘1 step forward, 3 steps back’, which interpolates Swift’s 2017 song ‘New Years Day’. This was done in accordance with the Academy’s new rule that everyone who served as a credited songwriter on an album nominated in the category shares the nomination.

The Academy have since, however, changed this rule to reflect those that directly wrote songs for the album, as opposed to those whose work is interpolated or referenced.
