I hope Vampire Weekend wins the Grammy for Alternative Album. Their album is great.August 11, 2019 at 12:58 pm #1203019636
The difference is that Selena has never been nominated in any category, and Post has been nominated 4 times, including Record and Album of the Year. And again, he got in for Pop Solo despite missing Pop Album so I don’t think him missing the latter category (along with people like Justin Timberlake and Sam Smith) is that damning.
Pop Solo was even weaker than Pop Album… And all his 3 other noms were in categoriews reviewed by nomination committees. Well, it’s an useless discussion to have. We’ll only know for sure if he gets constantly snubbed even with big hits from now on.August 11, 2019 at 1:00 pm #1203019638
“Rockstar” would have had no problem getting in Rap/Sung without the help of a committee. It likely would have gotten in Rap Song as well.
But you’re right, although I think “Sunflower” is easily headed toward a Record of the Year nomination. The fact that it’s still floating near the top ten of the Hot 100 after almost a year is not insignificant.August 11, 2019 at 1:10 pm #1203019655
Best Alternative Album is packed with former winners! ANIMA– Thom Yorke Father of the Bride– Vampire Weekend I Am Easy to Find– The National I, I– Bon Iver I think these 4 are safe bets.
Even though these are by old winners, I don’t think all of them will get into best Alternative Album, the least likely is shockingly Thom Yorke because his album is too electronic, but I do see the National getting in again, especially his 2017 win against Father John Misty, LCD Soundsystem, Gorillaz and Arcade Fire.

Would Titanic Rising by Weyes Blood have a place in ALT. Album too?August 11, 2019 at 1:26 pm #1203019667
Maybe. He was snubbed for his album and singles before when there was no Rap comittee, he could’ve been again.
“White Iverson” was the only thing voters passed over pre-committee, which is pretty understandable. It was a silly SoundCloud song that few took seriously.
His rap submissions for the 2018 Grammys were “Patient” (a non-hit album track) in Rap Performance, and “Congratulations” in Rap/Sung and Rap Song. There was a committee that year.
And Stoney competed in Urban Contemporary Album, so again, that was at the mercy of the R&B committee.August 11, 2019 at 2:19 pm #1203019710

I’m thinking this could be the BNA lineup, but it’s heavily dependent on whether Tyler Childers, Lizzo, and Rosalía are eligible. It’s questionable whether or not Childers and Lizzo have released too much material, and if Rosalía’s Latin Grammy wins preclude her.August 11, 2019 at 2:41 pm #1203019721

In my list it does. This is the most critically acclaimed album this year and normally those said critically acclaimed albums at least get some nominations. She deserves to win than Vampire Weekend imo.

What is Billie’s label doing? Bad Guy is very close to being #1. Peaking around this time could really help her Grammy wise. They should push for a radio deal or something.
Also “Boyfriend” won’t even debut in the top 5. Ariana shouldn’t have released this after TUN’s success, because now it’s starting to look like she’s past her peak era and may start to flop.
In all fairness with Taylor Swift, even with her bad singles she at least debuted at #2.August 11, 2019 at 4:11 pm #1203019762

Again, what station are you listening to because I’m hearing Bad Guy constantly too lol. I hear it on Pop radio AND alternative radio.
But, from what I see she’s moving on to other singles. She’s doing/already did a music video for All The Good Girls…. and she hinted something on her IG story she’s doing something with Xanny.August 11, 2019 at 4:11 pm #1203019764
Lead/2nd single vs random droplet.
It doesn’t matter. Both songs are new. Your argument would make sense if “Boyfriend” was a single released from an already available album. But it isn’t. This is new material, that was released as a proper single with an actual music video on same day. I’m sure it’s not just a random song dropped. It was released in the exact same fashion as Senorita and it’s being pushed on the radio. Definitely not a “random droplet”.
Even when TUN was released it wasn’t accompanied by a music video, nor was it announced as lead of an upcoming album. So your argument is moot.August 11, 2019 at 4:16 pm #1203019768

Well she’s only 40 points away from #1. I don’t listen to radio lol. I only see Bad Guy as #3 on radio. But they should make a deal to push it further. Increased airplay could propel it to finally be a #1 hit.August 11, 2019 at 4:27 pm #1203019774

What else could they do?? Its already reached its full potential promotion wise I feel like. Its still being streamed a lot and OTR’s hype is dying while BG is still consistent.
