Grammys Song of the Year: ‘Despacito’ or ‘That’s What I Like’?
It's Grammys season! And the Tylt is facing-off the best song performances, albums, and artists in the top genre categories. The "Grammy face-offs" are chosen by a combination of popularity, impact, acclaim, rankings, and sales. But ultimately with our head-to-head predictions, we want you to let us know who and what deserves to win in each category—before the Grammys air on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
"Despacito" is considered the frontrunner for song of the year due to its popularity, but the Grammys often times go for critical acclaim. While "1-800-273-8255," "Issues" and "4:44" were among the best 2017 had to offer, "That's What I Like" is the biggest threat to "Despacito."
And don't forget to cast your vote for the rest of Grammy debates:
Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber's collaboration turned out to be not only the biggest song of the summer but the second biggest hit of the year, according to Billboard. So it totally makes sense that "Despacito" won Best Urban Fusion/Performance, Best Short Form Music Video, Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 18th Annual Latin Grammy Awards this past November. And it's going to be hard to beat out the hottest song of the summer at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.
🎶 Despacito. Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito. Deja que te diga cosas al oído. Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo. Despacito. Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito. Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto. Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito. (Sube, sube, sube... Sube, sube).🎶
Who doesn't like what Bruno likes? Lucky for us, Bruno blessed us with "That's What I Like." The smash topped the Hot 100 back in the spring of 2017 and became the second biggest song of the summer. "That's What I Like" is also nominated for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance. Why? Because the song is pure fire. Hooligans are hoping that the Recording Academy sings to Bruno on Grammys night, "You deserve it baby, you deserve it all. And we're gonna give it to you."
🎶 Gold jewelry shining so bright. Strawberry champagne on ice. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like. Sex by the fire at night. Silk sheets and diamonds all white. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like. Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like.🎶
