Cardi B & Post Malone Aren’t Eligible for Best New Artist Grammy

Post Malone winner of the Favorite Male Artist- Pop  Rock award poses in the press room during the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater

Post Malone and Cardi B will not be able to compete for a best new artist Grammy at next year's awards, the New York Times reports.

The Bronx native born Belcalis Almánzar was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 2018 Grammys in January.

Sources told the AP that the New York City native, who celebrated her 26th birthday Tuesday, was submitted as a best new artist contender for the 2018 Grammys but was passed over in lieu of artists SZA, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, Julia Michaels and eventual victor Alessia Cara. The new rules for "Best New Artist" state that any artist that has received previous nominations is disqualified from running. The show will be aired on 10 February 2019. But because she had enough music to be eligible for best new artist at the 2018 show and earned prior nominations, she was not qualified to enter the category.

Post Malone has reportedly been removed from the Hip-Hop category at this year's Grammy category.

The "Better Now" rapper, who attempted to submit his latest album 'Beerbongs & Bentleys', was allegedly "kicked out of the rap category and pushed into pop".

The first round of voting for the 2019 Grammy nominations begins on 17 October.
