Good job assuming my nationality. I’m not Canadian, thank you very much. 21 is the best album of all time in my opinion yes. It’s far superior to anything your dear Ariana did or “bought” (since she doesn’t write her stuff). The vulnerability and the personal touch that you find in 21, you can’t find anywhere else. The stories behind the scenes about how she wrote and recorded a masterpiece like Rolling In The Deep in one take is admirable. And that’s what true artistry is. It isn’t shopping for songs. But again it’s ironic that you still cite those magazines while attacking me for saying 21 was the best album? Well Billboard that you were citing earlier named it as the greatest album of all time. Suddenly you don’t cite them anymore right? Very rich coming from someone who predicted Ariana to beat Adele for Best Pop Album in 2017 haha!
Lol Ariana winning against Adele is something for the ages! But your biased shit talking about Ariana G is pretty old. I’m not even pro-Ariana atm, just it’s funny! Shit talking a pop star when Ed Sheeran’s music is repetitive. lol boo bye. See you when nominations come out.

I know that people are writing off Old Town Road’s ROTY and SOTY chances, but the song is projected to be #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a LONG time. I’m talking I Will Always Love You-kinds of long. I can see the Grammys going for it as a result.April 11, 2019 at 1:00 am #1202847853
“Sunflower” is a terrible song and definitely one of Post Malone’s worse. To say it’s good, let alone great is a joke. “Wow” deserves to be recognized instead.
As someone who was happy to see “Better Now” nominated and even would have considered it a deserving win if he had won, I have to agree on “Sunflower”. I’d prefer it if this one was not submitted/not nominated.April 11, 2019 at 3:33 am #1202847904

Rihanna x Childish Gambino are rumored to be dropping on April 13th.
I guess it’s confirmed by Childish Gambino to be a music film, not an album, right?

I have mixed feelings about this Lil Nas X song… I kind of think it is going to come and go faster than a speeding bullet. Yes, it’s a cultural phenomenon and will be one of those things we look back on during the year of 2019 and remember… however… the song is just basically a musical meme.
It will stay at #1 for a couple of weeks as people continue to discover it, but I don’t think it will have staying power. As soon as another meme worthy song drops, this might be forgotten… and that might happen sooner than we think.
I believe Lil Dicky and Justin Bieber’s collaboration comes out next Friday. Assuming its along the lines of “Freaky Friday” and a video drops as well… this could stop Lil Nas X’s reign.
In terms of Grammy chances…
I think a lot will ride on what Lil Nas X releases next. I think if his next single and album continue the trend of hip-hop meets country, I think the Recording Academy will embrace him and honor him with nominations… potentially in the General Field. If the “Old Town Road” song was a one-off nod to country music and he fails to have a successful follow-up single, then I think they will see him more as a parody artist and he might be snubbed altogether.April 12, 2019 at 8:02 am #1202849242
Weyes Blood – Titanic Rising
Metacritic score 91 (so far with 22 reviews)
On albumoftheyear.org the score in 85.
Might end up as the most acclaimed album of the eligibility period with more than 20 reviews (unless Kendrick releases). Perhaps not well known enough for AOTY, but maybe enough to put her on the radar for a Best Alternative Album nomination.April 12, 2019 at 10:05 pm #1202849842
I’m hoping BTS can come through with a major nomination this year. I’m already obsessed with their new single and I think it’s cool how they have been able to breakthrough in a major way into the U.S. music market!
I’m rooting for them to score a nomination in Pop Duo/Group/Collaboration for “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey. Lord knows we haven’t had a lot of great new pop music as of late (outside of Ariana), and I think this blows a lot of the stateside competition out of the water!April 12, 2019 at 10:55 pm #1202849846

I mean last year proved that anything could be nominated, but BTS would have to pull a Fake Love Like song to be nominated. I’ve never heard that song nor I am going out of my way to do so. I think there are more interesting boy bands yet alone bands from the Kpop/Jpop world that would be a fad that we look back from 2019 in a couple of years.

There are lots of critically acclaimed albums that came out this year. And Kacey gave me some hope that another person with critical acclaim would win for AOTY rather than some popstar that makes generic music (sorry to Bruno, Taylor and Adele love you, just not AOTY worthy).
Some Critically Albums That Could Be in AOTY
- Assume Form- James Blake
- Remind Me Tomorrow- Sharon Ban Etten
- Thank U, Next- Ariana Grande
- When I Get Home- Solange
- Grey Area- Little Simz
- Psychodrama- Dave
- This Land- Gary Clark Jr.
- Flume- Hi This is Flume
- Titanic Rising- Weyes Blood
