    few observations:
    = Joe didn’t submit So I Can Have You Back & Lean Into It into performance/song category (the former could’ve been submitted last year).
    = Daley ft. Jill Scott – Until the Pain Is Gone submitted only to R&B Song, and no performance category.
    = Charlie Wilson – Chills submitted only to R&B Song, and no performance category.
    = Tamar Braxton – My Man submitted to R&B Performance, but not R&B Song.
    = After 7 – Runnin’ Out submitted only to Traditional R&B Performance, but not R&B song (it’s written by Babyface).
    = Charlie Wilson ft. T.I. – I’m Blessed is probably submitted only into Rap/Sung Performance.

    DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller – Wild Thoughts
    The Weeknd – Party Monster

    The Weeknd could of course go with Reminder or Die for You, but it’s worth mentioning Party Monster because that’s been his biggest hit this cycle aside from IFIC, which is likely to go Pop.

    Honey, for the millionth time, Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” is ineligible. It was submitted to Best Traditional R&B Performance last year.

    Honey, Sam Smith, “Too Good At Goodbyes” will be submitted to Best Pop Solo Performance instead of R&B.

    “Sex With Me” by Rihanna is eligible for R&B Song and R&B Performance. Hopefully she submits and secures the nomination if Wild Thoughts goes to Pop.

    I’m surprised about that. She always submits in Best R&B Album.

    Alicia going Urban is a surprisingly dumb tactic.

    The R&B Album category is weak with the exception of a few notable contenders like Bruno Mars and Mary J. Blige. Even though the album was a complete flop, “Here” could’ve at least been nominated based on her name and track record.

    I also don’t see her pulling in more votes than Gambino, SZA, The Weeknd, or Khalid.

    That’s why there’s a review committee in the R&B Field.

    She could get the fifth spot, but so could Calvin Harris, Kehlani, Jhené Aiko, or Future.

    Get real! Alicia Keys is NOT getting any nominations. It didn’t matter if she was placed in R&B or Urban Contemporary. The fifth spot will be someone random/unexpected.

    i wonder who will be the unexpected nominee in R&B Album (like last year’s Mint Condition & Mya, and before – like Bernhoft, Robert Glasper Experiment, Andra Day, etc.).
