The Recording Academy has announced that streaming only music is now eligible for Grammy consideration. The amendment will take effect for the 2017 Grammy Awards with the eligibility schedule between Oct. 1, 2015 and Sept. 30, 2016. (So yay for Chance the rapper and Coloring Book.)

In a press release, the Academy describes eligible streaming only recordings as music "released via general distribution, defined as the nationwide release of a recording via brick and mortar, third-party online retailers, and/or applicable digital streaming services. Applicable streaming services are paid subscription, full catalog, on-demand streaming/limited download platforms that have existed as such within the United States for at least one full year as of the submission deadline."
