    Call me crazy, but I can see A Tribe Called Quest upsetting Kendrick for Best Rap Album, if both get nominated for Album of The Year.

    If submitted and eligible, I would think that the 39 song Spotify digital release of the One Love Manchester concert would be a serious contender for an AOTY nomination. Though decades ago, other live concert recordings have been nominated for AOTY. The opportunity to make a political statement with such recognition would appear to be irresistible.

    It would be awesome, I had not thought of that

    Initially, I thought about the possibility of A Tribe Called Quest upsetting in Best Rap Album. However, Kendrick Lamar has way too much going on for him to lose that category.

    I think Ctrl by SZA can get a nomination for AOTY

    Get real! SZA’s Ctrl is NOT getting an AOTY nomination.

      If Kesha doesnt win best song for Praying there is something wrong. I cried it left me with freaking chills. Her album is an utter masterpiece. This is the same Kesha from years back i am shocked. The song Praying is so riveting.

    I think Kesha surprised us all with ‘Praying’ but it didn’t get high on the charts. Reached number 25 and then fell. SOTY no way, but if you consider the history behind ‘Praying’, which is truly very sad, who knows about a pop solo nom.

    I love SZA but I don’t think she can get into AOTY tbh. Although if her songs keep gaining and the album holds steady on the charts it’s a possibilty. I had a discussion with someone and she was compared to Frank (Channel Orange era) in terms of critical acclaim getting general field nods.

    I think she would be more comparable to Kendrick Lamar as the unlikely urban debut nominee for AOTY. I don’t think she will get in either, but CTRL and SZA have gotten a lot of buzz. She’s at least a lock for a BNA nomination.

    Vic Mensa should still be eligible for BNA. I think he could be a nominee as well.

    Honey, there is no way in hell Kesha is getting a Grammy nomination. “Praying” is rather forgettable and performed abysmally on the charts.

    Song of the Year: “Shape of You” – Ed Sheeran (hope it’s Castle On a Hill but it won’t be)
    “Million Reasons” – Lady Gaga WIN
    “Humble.” – Kendrick Lamar
    “Green Light” – Lorde
    “That’s What I Like” – Bruno Mars

    Coincidentally, these could be the same five nominated for AOTY

    Song of The Year is more complicated to predict than Record of The Year.

    Record of The Year has been dominated by pop songs since 2012, 4 of the 5 nominees were pop in the last three consecutive years.
    This year should be no exception:

    RECORD OF THE YEAR
    “Shape of You” – Ed Sheeran ***** (#1)
    “That’s What I Like” – Bruno Mars **** (#1)
    “Say You Won’t Let Go” – James Arthur *** (#11)
    “Wild Thoughts” – DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna, Bryson Tyller * (#2)
    “HUMBLE.” – Kendrick Lamar (#1)

    Alternatives (in that order):
    “I Feel It Coming” – The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk ** (#4)
    “Despacito” – Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber *** (#1)
    “Million Reasons” – Lady Gaga * (#4)
    “Redbone” – Childish Gambino ** (#12)
    “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” – Zayn and Taylor Swift *** (#2)
    “Believer” – Imagine Dragons (#5)
    “Rockabye” – Clean Bandit featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie ** (#9)
    “I’m the One” – DJ Khaled featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne *** (#1)

    (##) Peak on Billboard Hot 100

    * 1 million copies sold
    ** 2 million copies sold
    *** 3 million copies sold
    **** 4 million copies sold
    ***** 5 million copies sold

    I think she is, if I’m not wrong you need less than 3 albums and 30 singles, she only has 1 album and like 8 singles
