    ‘Lemonade’ should and will win here.

    Anti is a threat, but I don’t think it’s as big of a threat as many people here think. Pharrell beating Beyoncé two years back was a head scratcher at first because GIRL was such a terrible album and Beyoncé had a great track record in the R&B categories. But in hindsight, it makes sense because Pharrell was up for AOTY, had residual love from the year before and had “Happy” throughout that entire period.

    Snubbing Beyoncé again for her most acclaimed album yet and for an album that has gotten so much media coverage would be just too odd.

    I’m predicting Beyoncé here, and she deserves to win.

    Gallant and KING are worthy nominees. They lack name recognition. Despite receiving a Best New Artist nomination, Anderson. Paak won’t win. Rihanna is Beyoncé’s biggest competition. Anti did not have the same impact as Lemonade. Beyoncé lost this category two years ago. That won’t happen this time. Plus, Bey scored an AOTY nomination.

    SHOULD WIN: Beyoncé, Lemonade
    WILL WIN: Beyoncé, Lemonade

    Beyonce should be a lock, but we said that about her self-titled and we know what happened there. Still, I think Beyonce will bring home the gold.

    Of course Beyonce will win it. Lemonade is the biggest album in this category.

    lol oh so i see you have no problem with Beyonce winning urban/r&B category but when it comes to the pop/general field, then you don’t want her to win, hmmm I wonder why?

    Oh please. It has nothing to do with racism which you seem to be implying. Why should Hold Up win Pop Solo when Hello is the much more deserving choice? Lemonade is the deserving album in this category hence it will win. Beyonce made an urban/r&b album so will be awarded in that genre. Lemonade has a few pop tracks including Hold Up, however, they are not deserving of winning when theres Adele who will dominate the pop categories because Hello was a critical and commercial smash. Same goes with the general categories. There is a very viable case for Adele winning AOTY, SOTY and ROTY. Beyonce has an upper hand in AOTY with critical reception and an overdue factor however Adele wins out in terms of commercial impact, so she is not to be overlooked. Anyone’s argument in favour of Adele over Beyonce has nothing to do with race.

    Yea, but that time there was another AOTY nominee in the category with her, and that’s who she lost to. That’s not the case this year.

    It’s Beyoncé vs Rihanna. I think Rihanna has a chance, because the album is nominated across the R&B field, unlike Lemonade, and also has pop songs, including “Work”, which was a hit and it’s nominated for ROTY.
    Anyway, Beyoncé is winning this, I want to know if they will present it in the main telecast.

    Lemonade is the obvious frontrunner since it’s nominated for AOTY while Anti isn’t. The latter could still upset but it’s highly unlikely.

    Beyoncé should and will win.

    Even Anti puts some big competition, Lemonade (and we should admit it) has everything to win this category. A real big question is whether voters in general field and RnB/Urban field is the same voters or not, because we can see not a single song in Lemonade is nominated in RnB field.

    Should Win : Beyonce, Lemonade

    Will Win : Beyonce, Lemonade
