Billboard Enlisted OMI Among Nominees in Four Big Categories for Grammy Award 2016

It's the 2016 kickoff! All the eligible music is on the market, the ballots are in the mail, and Taylor Swift can't win everything (right?). Now, with 12 months of hits that matter, Billboard sizes up the best chances for gold among the big four categories.

The Recording Academy has completed its annual Grammy's screening process, so it's time again to consider which artists and industry figures will be recognized by their peers at the 58th annual awards on Feb 15. (To be eligible this year, all recordings must be released between Oct. 1, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015). With 83 categories in 30 fields, there is no shortage of potential nominees, but for the sake of -brevity  -- and sanity -- Billboard takes an early loook at possible contenders in the general-field categories, otherwise known as the Big Four. 

Among the list of prospective nominees, Billboard enlist, OMI's sweet "Cheerleader" in the, Record of the Year category as seen below:-
