Of course he has if he releases a hundred songs per year.He´s just a filler on the general field though hence why he never wins and doesn´t stand a chance this year, unlike Gaga. Shallow is a bigger hit worldwide and it will catch up in the US when all is said and done.Plus, the song it´s not struggling to stay in the top 40,it just dropped because of all the christmas songs,now it´s about to return to the top 20.
Kendrick does not releasing a bunch of songs a year, lol, I don’t know where you got that from. To even insinuate that he’s a “filler nominee” when he’s been a frontrunner for Album of The Year with his last 3 projects, including this year, is bold-faced delusional.
He’s lost in the general field due to bigger competition and the lack of popular appeal that comes with explicit hip hop music. Shallow is a lock for Visual Media but ATS can compete in Record and Song.
And it doesn’t matter what song came first. All The Stars has STILL moved significantly more song units than Shallow regardless, had a better chart run, significantly outstreamed it, and performed better on radio. It’s triple platinum, while Shallow isn’t even close to double platinum and doesn’t look like it’ll reach that status anytime soon. So, so much for your “when it’s all said and done” rhetoric.January 16, 2019 at 8:47 am #1202736243
Like what’s to even argue, All The Stars is a bigger hit in the US than Shallow.January 16, 2019 at 8:58 am #1202736252
The show promises to feature a preponderance of female performers, following last year’s criticism about the lack thereof. The producers’ M.O. over the last few years has been to book big star headliners capable of pulling in viewers, on the assumption that the rest will subsequently fall into place. But the nominating committee—and the secret committee deciding who gets all the cake—make booking the show more difficult by passing over music’s biggest stars: Justin Timberlake, Ed Sheeran, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, P!Nk, Camilla Cabello, Ariana Grande, etc.
Lenny Beer’s repeated insistence that “snubbing” the likes of Ariana, Camila Cabello, and Taylor Swift (with her least liked, least successful album) is on par with what happened to Ed Sheeran and Justin Timberlake is the height of delusion.
It’s actually a bit annoying, especially since he routinely shits on people like Janelle, Kacey, Brandi, and H.E.R., dismissing them as simple committee puts who have no business being there.January 16, 2019 at 9:00 am #1202736256

All things considered (global performance, album sales, etc.)? It’s not. And this is completely irrelevant since “Shallow” is going to stomp over “All the Stars” in those 3 categories regardless.January 16, 2019 at 9:00 am #1202736258
It doesn’t matter what album should be Kendrick’s first Album of The Year win. The BP Soundtrack would be a deserving winner in this year’s lineup and wouldn’t be a knock on his part.
He even stated in his LA Times interview that he’s extremely proud of the soundtrack that he produced and takes great pride that it’s associated with one of the biggest cultural phenomenons of the 21st century. I also don’t see what backlash the Grammys would get if it were to win.January 16, 2019 at 9:04 am #1202736262

Reading comprehension is important. I don’t see what “album sales” and “global performance” have to do with how big of a hit a “song” was in the “US”.
And I disagree.January 16, 2019 at 9:04 am #1202736263
I’m perfectly capable of reading. There’s a world outside of America.January 16, 2019 at 9:09 am #1202736272
Your point?January 16, 2019 at 9:13 am #1202736276
And how is that relevant to who is more likely to win the Grammy? Unless your point is that “All the Stars” is going to beat “Shallow” in all of its categories because it was apparently a bigger hit in the US, that’s off topic.January 16, 2019 at 9:17 am #1202736286

And my original comment was simply correcting someone who said otherwise. You know, like how you and other posters tend to correct people who post wrong stats. Let’s not act like everything said in this forum is completely on-topic.
And yes, I do think All The Stars being a bigger hit helps its chances in Record.January 16, 2019 at 9:38 am #1202736332
I won´t argue with someone who compares a year old song with a three months old,it´s just stupid.Saying the older song has a better run when the other one´s run haven´t finished yet makes no sense,make it make sense.MAKE IT MAKE SENSE.January 16, 2019 at 9:42 am #1202736343
Yeah, “Shallow”‘s chart run isn’t even over which makes the argument especially idiotic. When it’s all said and done, it’s going to be bigger than “All the Stars” so… congrats on the year-old song being bigger for now?January 16, 2019 at 9:51 am #1202736365
Grammys don’t predict the future and they tend to choose bigger hits. We all predict Shallow to beat ATS because of 1) timing 2) the style of the song.
If they were both “conservative” songs and Shallow wasn’t winning the “Best Song” awards in every Oscar precursor, ATS would easily beat it, because Shallow is barely a hit. And even if Shallow ends up being bigger in the future, it’s thanks to the awards it will win, something ATS didn’t rely on, because it was released much earlier. Saying ‘Shallow is a bigger hit than All The Stars in the US‘ is a lie.
