    Not mentioning it after the Oscars. They could’ve done so many things with this and didn’t. This didn’t happen when it came to Bodyguard and Saturday Night Fever.

    I don’t really see what the point would be when the movie alone did a good job of giving sales/streams to the would-have-been singles “Always Remember Us This Way” and “I’ll Never Love Again”. No point in oversaturating the market, especially since she’s working on a new album.

    Cool. I’m glad it’s eligible. I would love for it to pop up in Pop Solo.

    Talk did better on the Pop charts and Better lasted longer on the R&B charts. Talk is more upbeat and feels poppier and I feel they’ll lean that way.

    “Talk” is more of an R&B Song. “Better” would fit better in Pop.

    Wasn’t “Better” submitted last year, which would make it ineligible this year? If not, I would root for “Better” to be a Pop Solo nominee.

    “Better” did not chart in the top 40 on either urban or urban AC radio. “Talk” was a #1 hit on both formats. Both songs were hits on pop radio. Which is all the more reason they should go with “Talk” in the R&B categories, especially since the nominations review committee for the R&B field prefers urban AC hits.

    I would be surpised if Señorita is not nominated for pop duo… I dont see the reason for them to ignore the song if it’s doing so well and have 2 artists that were previously nominated

    and like others said I think the song could be nominated in other categories too….it really came out at the right time

    Truth Hurts is as (if not more) of a meme novelty song than Old Town Road. Old Town Road is getting in both GF categories.

    Get real! “Truth Hurts” is NOT a meme/noveltry song.

    Sorry, but Truth Hurts is not a serious, well-written song. It’s a fun, rap/sung meme song, it became popular because it was featured in a movie scene. It falls in line with In My Feelings, Old Town Road, Panda, Black Beatles, Lucid Dreams, and also now Ransom, aka songs that are popular but nobody thinks they are great or Grammy-worthy. It’s no Humble, This is America, All The Stars, Formation. It’s a fun song from 2017. It’s not winning any Grammys and probably won’t get nominated in the GF.

    Old Town Road broke so many records, that’s why it should be taken as a threat.

    Basically, any song right now can be considered a “meme song.” “Hello” by Adele was also a “meme song.” This is the digital/streaming era. The youngsters will turn anything into a meme, which is not hard to do.

    “Truth Hurts” is not at all comparable to any of those songs you named, and neither is “Lucid Dreams” for that matter.

    It will easily be nominated for ROTY and SOTY is possible too.

    Hey everyone, been following these threads for years but finally decided to make an account.

    Anyway, one album I have hardly seen being talked about is A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships by The 1975. It’s one of the highest rated albums in this cycle, with an 83 on Metacritic (it’s behind Solange’s 89 and Ariana’s 86, which is kinda surprising), and has a rating of 8.5 on Pitchfork, second only to Solange again (this is dependent on if you think Pitchfork is a credible music source as well). It definitely doesn’t have the biggest sales, probably close to the lowest, but I don’t think that matters too much for GF considering Golden Hour rightfully won last year despite lower sales than its competitors.

    The 1975 is also pulling an Ariana Grande, in which they will be promoting their next album, Notes On a Conditional Form, during the voting process. They have a new single in a couple of days, which depending on how that and the next singles could do may keep them relevant in the eyes of Grammy voters.

    Their album is definitely not for everyone; I could see Grammy voters not liking their use of Auto-Tune in a couple of songs, and there are a lot of ballads come the second half that really slow the pace down. But they have some of the best songs released in this year, with Love It If We Made It and Sincerity Is Scary, which I don’t think qualify because they submitted them last year, but I’m not positive on that yet, but maybe they would submit It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You) somewhere?

    This is a long post, sorry everyone, but I’m interested to hear what you guys think of the album and it’s Grammy potential. They’ve only been nominated once and lost, but this album has a possibility for a few categories in my opinion.

    Not really? She’s popular, distinctive, talented, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that her album got rave reviews. She’s going to have a nice nominations haul.
