Justin Bieber broke a record set in 2020 by Beyoncé. According to Stereo eraser, Bieber broke Beyonce’s record for having the most songwriters on a song that was nominated for Song of the Year. Beyoncé’s “Black Parade” had 9 songwriters credited on the song, while Bieber has 11 songwriters.
The songwriters credited on the song are Justin Bieber, Ashton Simmonds, better known as Daniel Caesar, Giveon Dezmann Evans (Giveon), Louis Bell, Bernard Harvey, Felisha “Fury” King, Matthew Sean Leon, Luis Manuel Martinez Jr., Aaron Simmonds, Andrew Woman and Kevin Yazdani. Before “Black Parade” held the record, Bruno Mars ‘”That’s What I Like” held the record thanks to eight songwriters’ credit on the song. Prior to that, Destiny Child (Beyoncé’s former girl group) held the record with their hit song “Say My Name,” which was credited with seven authors.
Bieber’s song “Peaches,” which stars singer-songwriters Daniel Caesar and Giveon, was released on his album Justice. In fact, the deluxe version of the album is also recognized as it is nominated for the album of the year award. It was hard not to hear the song everywhere, including on social media. The song’s fluid groove and catchy hook has certainly established itself as fan favorites.
Congratulations on Bieber’s Grammy nominations, as well as the record held by the famous Beyoncé. The 64th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on January 31 at 8 p.m. ET. It will appear on CBS and Paramount + for viewers to potentially watch Bieber accept Song of the Year and Album of the Year.
