    Although I think TWIL is the frontrunner for SOTY, it may lose this category to Redbone. The last two years, big hits have lost to more traditional R&B songs with more adult appeal. (The Weeknd lost to D’Angelo in 2016; Bryson Tiller and Rihanna lost to Maxwell last year.)

    Additionally, I suspect that the R&B musicians voting in this category may favor a more core urban act like Childish Gambino over someone like Bruno Mars, who is seen by many as a pop star. But Bruno is well liked across the board, so it could go either way.

    I’m now betting on Redbone. I would also watch out for Location in case Bruno and Glover split votes.

    The R&B field would be one of the most competitive fields in years if it wasn’t for Bruno Mars(a pop artist with mass appeal) and Childish Gambino nominated in 2 GF categories. We can only hope for the best, SZA and Khalid are very vulnerable and could go home empty handed(BNA Alessia Cara, SOTY Bruno).

    Childish is a lock in Traditional R&B, he shouldn’t win Urban Contemporary Album, even if he’s nominated for AOTY. This should go to SZA, her album is by far the most relevant.

    Bruno is a lock for R&B Album(unfortunately), there’s no need to give him every award, but we know how Grammys love to award the same artist 4, 5, 6 times in the same year and let more deserving and less popular acts hanging. He’ll probably win R&B performance, SOTY and/or AOTY.

    R&B song, I think Redbone wins, but I won’t be surprised if Bruno does.

    R&B Song
    SHOULD: Redbone
    WILL: Redbone

    R&B Performance
    SHOULD: The Weekend (SZA)
    WILL: That’s What I Like

    Traditional R&B (locked)
    SHOULD AND WILL: Redbone

    R&B Album
    SHOULD: Anyone but Bruno
    WILL: 24k Magic

    Urban Contemporary Album
    SHOULD: Ctrl
    WILL: Awaken, Ctrl, Starboy and American Teen are equally likely winners.

    bruno mars isn’t any less deserving of winning these r&b categories than alicia keys, beyonce, or rihanna who also beat out far better and artistic work.

    Alicia is actually very talented and her albums are at least consistent. I agree on the other two, though, specially Beyoncé, most of her wins are thanks to the R&B field throwing Grammys her way because of popularity, not quality.  Rihanna doesn’t bother me that much, she only won one Grammy under the same conditions, it’s no big deal(still undeserved anyway).

    But what I meant is that the Grammys shouldn’t reward mediocre albums because of popularity, and if they stop doing that this year, better late than never.

    I see Bruno Mars winning 2-3 Grammys. He’s no Adele or Beyoncé.

    As of lately, voters like to spread the wealth a little in the R&B field.

    Bruno wins two. Childish Gambino wins two. That leaves either Khalid or SZA winning one.

    LOL all this disdain for Bruno, yet aside from SZA and Childish Gambino, I bet many of you hardly know the other RnB nominees, much less have paid attention to this category often.

    this decade beyonce only gets 1-3 per album, so if you’re predicting 2-3 for bruno then he’s matching her.

    adele is music royalty, no one compares to her.

    i see bruno getting 4.

    The only R&B Song nominee that most people here may not know is “First Begin,” which has no chance at winning. “Location” was one of the most popular R&B songs of 2017. So that’s 4 out of 5 nominees that people are familiar with.

    If lemonade had been released in 2000’s , Beyonce could probably have won more than 2. A lot of voters probably feel she has to many Grammy’s and tend to pick someone else other than Beyonce in rap/urban fields recently e.g Hotline bling over Freedom,  G.I.R.L over the Beyonce album.

    I am pretty sure Adele 4.0 wouldn’t get as much love as 25, 21 ..

     

    I see Bruno winning 2 awards (completely shut out from the general field)

    well yeah that’s my point, she is no longer the big grammy force she used to be. maybe it’s fatigue, maybe they think she’s overrated, maybe they’re tired of her adding her name to writing credits despite not writing anything, maybe she stopped opening legs or paying people… who really knows?

    I’m starting to think Bruno Mars will be shut-out of the General field too. Only winning 2 Grammys – Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Album.

    I think Bruno will win R&B Performance and Album and Childish Gambino will win the other awards in the field: Song, Traditional and Urban Contemporary.

    I’m thinking the winners will be (this may change next week, lol):

    ROTY – “Despacito”
    AOTY – DAMN.
    SOTY – “Despacito” or “1-800-273-8355”
    Best R&B Song – “Location” or “Redbone”
