I still see her fans saying that HC is a better bet for the AOTY than TG, I think that’s kinda crazy but ok
TG is still a mystery, we know he will be acclaimed but it looks like not in the same level as Lemonade, Self Title or even HC, the album has not even debuted on metacritic yet and already got a yellow note (60), I believe it will get praise in EIL level
Commercially the album will do better than HC, obviously, and will probably be more memorable because it is a album with new and original songs, but just like Spirit’s performance it doesn’t feel that will be a hit as some might believe
Beyoncé hype might grown with the fallowing awards like Emmy and even the Oscars, but we also know that the Grammys are kind done with giving her an aoty nomimation for anything she releases
I will or should wait a few weaks to assume things, but right now TG hype dosen’t sound to much different from the same over EIL last year, so she could be ignored again in the GFJuly 19, 2019 at 11:23 am #1202985395
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that neither The Gift nor whatever the fuck that Chance album is called are going to get into AOTY.July 19, 2019 at 11:26 am #1202985408
It’s called The Big Day, and I’m not sure why it’s not in the prediction center yet.July 19, 2019 at 11:27 am #1202985412
Why tf would Beyoncé submit a flop live album full of old tracks over an album connected to a blockbuster Disney movie?July 19, 2019 at 11:42 am #1202985435
okay heres my take lol, im positive none of y’all care but…
It already isn’t looking like it can reach Lemonade type acclaim. But the album seems like its very well liked to the audience it was intended for. Before the album was released it was a trended topic on Twitter and when it was released 5 of the songs were trending topics, its obviously favored. “A love letter to Africa” is what Beyonce described the The Gift. I expected that this wasn’t going to do well because it doesn’t fit with the music that obviously popular right now. The album contains African artists/producers and majority is Afrobeats, obviously this wouldn’t attract say a Taylor fan or an Ariana fan or an Ed fan.
This album was created for a certain group of people to feel loved, included, and its literally just a feel good album with good songs. Im not surprised most of y’all don’t like it/don’t care for it. It was most likely NOT MADE FOR YOU TO LIKE, this can be said about literally every Beyonce project starting from Lemonade. The album focuses on black empowerment and inclusion to those who don’t feel included.
With that being said, its gonna fit with the same boat as Lemonade at the Grammys. It’ll only win in its genre. If it gets AOTY, most likely she’s not winning. Because we need to remember who the Grammy voters are……. They’re gonna choose the “easy-listen” album to win, and judging that none of y’all really cared for it, it guess it wasn’t an easy listen. But I obviously thought the album was amazing, my favorite Beyonce work tbh. As a Hive, I had little faith that it’ll do well. But we should all know by know that Beyonce doesn’t care about numbers or charts, she literally called this out on EIL.
But anyways, I know most of y’all aren’t gonna read this whole thing and or probably quote a sentence in this and call me out on it.

Question.. shouldn’t The GIFT be entered into Soundtrack Album? . I mean I know Black Panther was entered in Rap Album and all… but what’s the difference between A Star Is Born and The Gift. Both albums are the Soundtrack to the movie. And The Gift has interludes directly from the film itself. In Kendrick’s case the only song that was played in the film was “Pray for Me”. The album never contained any dialogue derived from the script. I don’t have much knowledge about the film categories but are there rules to exclude The gift from being entered?July 19, 2019 at 11:49 am #1202985446

The Gift will NOT be nominated for AOTY. At this point, Bey will only get another AOTY nod when she tops Lemonade in terms of impact and acclamation.July 19, 2019 at 1:19 pm #1202985571
In this very weak year, The Gift could be nominated, even if it flops.
I wouldn’t rule it out. It won’t win though. It’s not something that’ll appeal to the voters at large.July 19, 2019 at 3:47 pm #1202985737
Lol in this “weak year”… Some of the best criticaly acclaimed albums and singles came out just this year. It’s a slow year but it ain’t a bad year in music guys overall. It’s is a bad year for MAINTSTREAM music tho.
