Grammy organization In June of 2016, announced a few minor changes to the voting and awarding process:
Streaming-only recordings now eligible
As of 2017, recordings released solely through streaming services will be eligible to enter the award process. These recordings will have to be available through streaming platforms.
Applicable streaming services are paid subscription, full catalogue, on-demand streaming/limited download platforms that have existed as such within the United States for at least one full year as of the submission deadline.
All recordings entered must have an assigned International Standard Recording Code (ISRC).
Best New Artist guidelines amended
Existing Best New Artist rules were amended to remove the album barrier given current trends in how new music and developing artists are released and promoted.
Many new artists currently first release singles, tracks or EPs rather than full albums.
To become eligible in the category of Best New Artist, the artist, duo, or group: Must have released a minimum of five singles/tracks or one album, but no more than 30 singles/tracks or three albums.
May not have entered into this category more than three times, including as a performing member of an established group. Must have achieved a breakthrough into the public consciousness and impacted the musical landscape during the eligibility period.
The Best Blues Album category will branch into two distinct categories:
Best Traditional Blues Album (Blues recordings with traditional blues song and harmonic structures. Includes various subgenres such as Delta blues, Piedmont blues, jump/swing blues, Chicago blues and classic/Southern soul).
Best Contemporary Blues Album (Recordings which may employ non-traditional blues rhythms such as funk, hip-hop, reggae, and rock, or which feature contemporary techniques such as synthesizers or loops).
This means a return to the situation prior to 2012, the year both categories were merged in a major overhaul of Grammy categories.
Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category renamed
The Best Rap/Sung Collaboration category (in the Rap field) will be renamed as Best Rap/Sung Performance, to allow solo performances into this category.
This is a result of “the current state and future trajectory of rap by expanding the category beyond collaborations between rappers and vocalists to include recordings by a solo artist who blurs the lines between rapping and singing”.
Additional amendments were made to the number and type of music creators recognized in the categories of Best Choral Performance and Best Jazz Vocal Album.
