Record of the Year is one of the four major categories of the Grammy Awards night, which also include Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist.

The 64th Grammy Awards ceremony was postponed from its original date in January to April due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is the first time that the U.S. music industry's biggest event took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, rather than its usual post in Los Angeles and New York.
