But I’m the one with a history of delusional Pop Solo predictionsAugust 10, 2019 at 11:09 am #1203018696This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 10, 2019 at 11:12 am #1203018700This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 10, 2019 at 11:18 am #1203018705
Do you expect me to feel bad for dumb prediction I made in my first year or because you actually took time to go to my old predictions, screenshot, edit and upload it, and then make a post that will absolutely, 1000% percent be irrelevant to this conversation, and one that you just did to further indicate how little basis you have for Bad Guy winning anything against anyone?
Considering you’re suggesting I’m delusional and/or biased and/or dumb for the prediction I’ve made, and you’ve given no credible reason why Ariana is supposedly so much more likely than Billie to win other than the possible implication that you personally don’t think “Bad Guy” is a good song, I think it’s fair game to bring up your more questionable predictions.
“Bad Guy” has had success at pop and rock radio (reaching #1 at both top 40 and alternative), unlike “Thank U, Next” or “7 Rings”, which suggests it has broader appeal. “Bad Guy” is catching up with both songs in Spotify streams and YouTube views, which suggests it is on track to be more commercially successful. And it’s also #2 in its 18th week on the chart, by which point both of the Ariana songs were already out of the top ten, so it’s had more longevity. And it’s also newer, so it’s fresher in the minds of voters. Those are my reasons. What are yours?August 10, 2019 at 11:18 am #1203018707This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 10, 2019 at 11:19 am #1203018709
What they have in common is that they sang very easy-listening material, while most hip hop tends to address race issues, which white old voters might not appreciate.
Yes, yes, easy-listening material with no race or civil rights issues like Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud (James Brown), Living for the City (Stevie Wonder), What Did I Do to Be So Black and Blue (Louis Armstrong), Respect (Aretha Franklin.
You know NOTHING about the artists I mentioned. You shouldn’t talk about them as if they didn’t care or didn’t adressed their thoughts on their songs.August 10, 2019 at 11:20 am #1203018712This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 10, 2019 at 11:23 am #1203018716This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 10, 2019 at 11:38 am #1203018721
I’m curious to see what Lizzo’s nomination haul looks like come November. She could be shooting for the 4-5 range or even 8+, depending on submissions and how genre committees feel about her.
She’s definitely getting nominated for AOTY, BNA (unless ruled ineligible), and Urban Contemporary Album.
ROTY, Rap/Sung & Rap Song are likely, SOTY is possible. Rap Performance for “Tempo” could happen; R&B Performance and/or Song could happen, “Crybaby” could get in Rock Performance and/or Song, and if voters really like her, “Juice” could even get in Pop Solo even though it wasn’t that big of a hit.
She’s definitely going to do well, but how well is the question.August 10, 2019 at 11:48 am #1203018733
Honey there are 4 frontrunners, a pop veteran, a pop star, and 2 pop newbie. I might not like A Star is Born, but the fact that Lady Gaga has AOTY at the Grammys is phenomenal. Ariana Grande is at the peak of her career with her best album to date. And Billie and Lizzo has one of the best albums of the eligibility and both have one of the best mainstream debut albums of the decade.
AOTY: Fetch the Bolt Cutters or After Hours
ROTY & SOTY: Blinding Lights & Don’t Start Now
BNA: Megan Thee Stallion or Rina Sawayama
Rap Album: RTJ4
Country Album: Gaslighter
Americana Album: Reunions
Pop Album: SAWAYAMA
Rock Album: The New Abnormal
R&B Performance: Do ItAugust 10, 2019 at 11:52 am #1203018736This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.
