RECORD OF THE YEAR

 

Hey, Ma – Bon Iver

 

Hey, Ma – Bon Iver | “Hey Ma” is part of Bon Iver’s 2019 project entitled iCOMMAi, which fandom are considering to be the name of their album.

Bad Guy – Billie Eilish

 

Bad Guy – Billie Eilish | 210.654.963 views | It was released on March 29, 2019, through Darkroom and Interscope Records.
