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.August 19, 2019 at 4:28 pm #1203030754
Wasn’t “Better” submitted last year, which would make it ineligible this year?
These were Khalid’s submissions last year:
OTW – ROY, SOY
Love Lies – ROY, SOY, RB Perf, RB Song, Song/VM, MVid
This Way – Song/VM
Floating – ROY, SOY, RB Perf, RB Song
Eastside – ROY, SOY, Pop DG, MVid
Trippin’ – ROY, SOY, Rap/Sung
Ocean – ROY, SOY, Pop DG, MVid
Youth – Pop DG
No Pain – RB SongAugust 19, 2019 at 4:34 pm #1203030770
Cool. I’m glad it’s eligible. I would love for it to pop up in Pop Solo.August 19, 2019 at 5:14 pm #1203030803
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.August 19, 2019 at 5:15 pm #1203030805
“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.August 19, 2019 at 6:03 pm #1203030853
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 timeAugust 19, 2019 at 6:05 pm #1203030860
“Seasons” by Khalid and 6LACK will probably be submitted in Rap Sung or R&B Perf/Song as well.August 20, 2019 at 1:13 am #1203031194
omg lol so other than ariana grande, billie eilish, and señorita getting nominated for everything, who else will get nominated in the general field and/or pop field?August 20, 2019 at 2:55 am #1203031243
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.August 20, 2019 at 4:13 am #1203031255
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.August 20, 2019 at 7:10 am #1203031421
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.August 20, 2019 at 7:28 am #1203031442
“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.August 20, 2019 at 8:08 am #1203031482
Y’all are overhyping Lizzo’s chances again but I guess.August 20, 2019 at 8:14 am #1203031489
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.
