Who will win the 2017 Grammy for Best R&B Song?December 14, 2016 at 9:57 am #1201969473
This category is so weird. I wanna predict “Kiss It Better,” but “Lake by the Ocean” is the most R&B thing here, and it’s great written song.
I don’t want to overestimate Rihanna in the R&B field, and I think Maxwell should win.
Flip a coin. “Lake By The Ocean” for the win, I guess.December 14, 2016 at 10:06 am #1201969480
I’m so disappointed in how trash this category is this year. I know this is Maxwell’s only nomination, but “Kiss It Better” deserves the win the most and I think it has a fair shot at the win. Given wins in the last few years for “Drunk in Love” and “Pusher Love Girl,” it’s clear that voters don’t mind taking a detour away from more traditional R&B leaning tracks. Last year, “Really Love” won but it had an ROTY nomination on its side and all the tracks nominated for R&B Song last year were traditional in nature, so there was nothing to really steer the course.
Gonna go against my gut instinct (which says to play it safe & predict Maxwell) and go with Rihanna for the win. I won’t be surprised at all by a Maxwell win, though.
SHOULD WIN: “Kiss It Better”
WILL WIN: “Kiss It Better”
NEXT IN LINE: “Lake By The Ocean”December 14, 2016 at 10:29 am #1201969510
I love the R&B nominations. Whoever wins this will win by a few votes, imo. My prediction goes to Kiss It Better with Lake By The Ocean being a close 2ndDecember 14, 2016 at 10:55 am #1201969543
i think Maxwell can prevail here like Miguel winning over Usher some years ago.December 14, 2016 at 11:03 am #1201969551
“Come and See Me,” “Exchange,” and “Luv” have no chance. It boils down to “Kiss It Better” and “Lake By the Ocean.” Rihanna will win elsewhere. Maxwell is a veteran that’s been under-rewarded. This is the only category that voters can vote for him. NARAS likes to play catch-up.
SHOULD WIN: “Lake By The Ocean”
WILL WIN: “Lake By The Ocean”December 14, 2016 at 5:22 pm #1201969822

lets be fair, frank and realistic, Its the best song nominated.

I don’t think any of the R&B wins will come as a shocker to anyone.December 15, 2016 at 1:40 am #1201970084
Honey, “Kiss It Better” is rather awful. It’s just as terrible as “Work” and “Needed Me.”December 15, 2016 at 1:58 pm #1201970365
“Kiss It Better” is a great song. And ‘Anti’ is honestly Rihanna’s best album to date. Glad NARAS saw fit to recognize her.
