    I wondered how the Kendrick stans felt when TPAB lost to 1989. Especially the ones who actually thought he was winning.

    Two sentences or ten, the fact that you think I give enough damn about you or any of these posters’ opinions to want to “dictate” is laughable. Adele losing wouldn’t upset anyone predicting her, but I’m sure you Beyonce supporters and stans will cry foul/racism if/when Beyonce loses. Get over yourself.

    Um considering Adele is White Woman who doesn’t sing about sex, race or anything that might polarize voters/ fans! I would understand why many people wouldnt be mad or upset if she lost. But when a black woman like Beyonce, creates an album that literally  transcend  genres such as Pop, Rock, Country, R&B, and Rap, brings awarness to Racism, sexism, and other social justice issues, giving Women Of Color, especially Black Women, a voice in the mainstream loses ATOY to white  mediocrity! Yeah many people probably are going to be VERY UPSET and call out the GRAMMYS!

    Kendrick fans moved on and surely wasn’t as vocal as the Hive will be if Bey loses.

    I believe Lemonade could have sold more and had more top 10 singles, if she had followed the traditional album release and sales tragedy. Not releasing her videos on YouTube on time, and not being on spotify and all affected the chart dominance of her singles.

    Simply makes me think Beyonce doesn’t care about her singles dominance, and in that case she has won with the critical acclaim and overall cultural impact of her singles

    I think Sturgill Simpson is out of this race, he is no Beck

    Views and Purpose can’t win in a million years…

    it boils down to Adele and Beyonce

    And I hope Beyonce wins.

    The hive will always be vocal.
    They have gotten used to seeing Beyonce win almost all the time.

    Oh yes they were. They were mad af when he lost to Macklemore and even more pissed that he lost to Taylor Swift. Even I felt bad.

    No, there were more folks mad over the Macklemore thing than the Taylor thing. Taylor had the privilege of being very well-liked in and out of the industry, so that loss didn’t hurt nearly as bad. Plus, Kendrick won five awards that night. Kendrick and Macklemore were both breakthrough rappers, and Kendrick lost every award to Macklemore. I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

    People (who aren’t the Beyhive) would also get over an Adele win because she’s well-liked across many borders. A loss to Sturgill or Bieber would hurt much more.

    Well my bet is still on 25, I just can’t see it losing. Any urban album that has won in the past had a hit that everybody knew as a previous poster said and I also think the fact that it’s not as accessible to individuals (only being on Tidal to be streamed) won’t work in its favor whereas 25 has the acclaim, Adele is loved, the recognizable hit Hello and commercial success along with less people being involved in creating the album.

    I remember when Beyoncé lost AOTY two years ago. Posters claimed that she would never win. Here were are two years later…

    When Lauryn Hill and OutKast won AOTY, they had massive album sales and a #1 hit single. Something Beyoncé lacks.

    If Beyonce loses this year.
    Her next album could possibly win.

    Maybe the Jay-Z and Beyonce collaboration

    I don’t think so. Nobody has been nominated after losing AOTY three times :/

    A Beyoncé/Jay-Z album would be iconic. If they had moderate critical acclaim (which they probably will seeing the trend in Beyonces work) then I could see them getting nominated in AOTY, and definitely UC Album or Rap Album.

    The Grammys have loved all collabs with Bey and Jay

    It’s odd that Jay-Z has never been nominated for any of his own albums, tho.

    Sturgill has a good chance, but I guess Beyoncé’s album was better in terms of sales and crticial acclaim
