Miley Cyrus to join exclusive company if she gets Grammy Record of the Year nomination
The 30-year-old and her father could join the likes of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.
Miley Cyrus and her father Billy Ray Cyrus could be joining the very short list of parents and children to both be nominated for the Record of the Year category at the Grammys.
The duo could become the third to make the list, and would be put alongside musical legends such as Frank Sinatra and his daughter, Nancy, and Nat King Cole and his daughter, Natalie.
Billy Ray was nominated for record of the year in both 1992 for ‘Achy Breaky Heart’, and in 2019 as a feature on Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road”.
In order for the father-daughter duo to earn the exclusive list status alongside Sinatra and Cole, Miley will have to receive a nomination in the Record of the Year category, which is very possible considering the popularity her hit song ‘Flowers’.
‘Flowers’ holds the top spot on the charts
Since its release on January 12, Miley’s lead track off of her latest album ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ has taken over fans’ playlist as well as the top music charts.
‘Flowers’ managed to hold the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks, and the number one spot on the Official U.K. Singles Chart for 10 weeks. These honors made it her first song in the Hot 100 since her 2013 song ‘Wrecking Ball.’
On top of ruling the music charts, the track also made history when it broke Spotify’s all-time one-week record, with 100 million-plus streams, dethroning BTS’ hit ‘Butter’ which reached around 99 million streams within its first week of being released.
Miley responds to ‘Flowers’ success
When ‘Flowers’ hit its one-month anniversary back in February, Miley Cyrus took to her Twitter to share her love for both the track and her fans.
“Happy 1 month anniversary of Flowers! To still be celebrating #1 on the Hot 100 & around the world is phenomenal,” she wrote.
“With Valentine’s Day coming up tomorrow this song feels even more meaningful to me. I hope this holiday is filled with the joy of honoring love in all of its forms.”
“It’s human nature to want to give & receive it. Sharing your love is special but it’s always important to save enough of that love for yourself,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet.
“YOU are enough anything more is just extra. Thank you for another incredible week. I LOVE YOU.”
She also attached a seven-second clip of an outtake from the ‘Flowers,’ music video, where she is seen lounging by a pool with a shirtless man filling the pool with a hose behind her.
