    Hopefully there’s a little bit of a shake-up in this category… this might be an unpopular opinion, but I need the Recording Academy to honor more hit records/mainstream artists here. It’s okay to have one or two surprise indie/small-time artists pop up with a nom, but I don’t want the category to look like the “Independent Spirit of R&B Music Awards.”

    How many R&B songs or albums have been hits, though? Mainstream just hasn’t been as accepting of R&B nowadays, so why would they honor mainstream? And I don’t think someone like The Weeknd is any better or more important than someone like Gallant just because The Weeknd is more popular. The Grammys have nominated and awarded plenty of mainstream artists in the R&B field over the years. I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

    H.E.R.’s going to so win R&B Album if she makes the final listing. She’s the only contender charting right now.

    It’s between her and Leon Bridges, who is more traditional and has more cross-genre appeal.

    Not sure if anyone pays attention to Ranker but they have a pretty good list of Best R&B Songs of the year, and it’s fan voted with thousands or of voters..

    LMAO….Toni scores three nominations. Although the pretentious “experts” on this forum said otherwise. Stay winning Toni.

    Congrats to Toni & H.E.R. On the multiple nominations and future wins 😉

    Janelle SHOULD’VE won Urban Contemporary over The Carters. I’m rooting for Miguel to spoil their win.

    In my dream world… Toni wins Best R&B performance, H.E.R. wins for R&B album, and Miguel takes Urban Contemporary.
