    I just checked and she did. But still, 1989 had undeniable hits and was a huge pop era. The Grammys only reward her when she’s soaring the whole year and even then, they don’t allow her to sweep. She has trouble with winning genre categories and can be very susceptible to a loss. FWIW, she *could* snag a SOTY nod for Lover but I’m using that lightly.

    The category was also extremely weak. The only remote threat to her winning was the boomer vote going to James Taylor.

    Lewis Capaldi is a non factor. Shawn Mendes is blowing up at the perfect time with two massive hits. He will take his spot in Pop solo.

    Shawn Mendes couldn’t get in Pop Solo with his most grammy-baity song ever over Joanne and Colors. I doubt he’ll be in this year. He’ll just get a Pop Duo/GP nomination that he will lose.

    He’s just becoming a JB at this point, especially with his racist tweets that resurfaced.

    I fail to see how Lewis Capaldi is any different than Ed Sheeran, James Arthur, Hozier, James Bay, Meghan Trainor, Passenger, Shawn Mendes, Julia Michaels, and all the other new artists who missed Pop Solo with their late-Grammy-season breakthrough hits.

    He even fits the same mold as those other artists.

    Yep, he’s a lot like those artists. That’s why he’s nowhere near a lock.

    However, IF he manages the nomination, then he could be a threat. AC and Hot AC will probably keep that song around until winter.

    I don’t disagree with that, but he’s going to have trouble getting that nomination. I think he’s more likely in SOTY like some of those aforementioned artists, especially since he just has to make the top 20 there vs. the top 5-6 in pop, and since the song will likely keep getting bigger through the fall.

    There is not a review committee for the pop field

    Taylor Swift missed a Pop Solo nod with a bigger song that Lover, and one that was all over radio, and lost Pop Vocal despite outselling everyone nominated combined. It’s clear that voters have moved on, and her track record in the Pop field isn’t even that good to begin with.

    Ariana and Billie had bigger eras, more streams, more buzz, bigger singles (#1 singles, exactly)… The only thing Taylor has is better-than-average reviews (that could drop) and great sales, which didn’t help last year. Why exactly is she winning again?

    Taylor Swift lost to Ariana right at a time when the latter is peaking with the #1 song in the country while voters are voting, whereas Taylor Swift’s album is basically old news and not well-received.

    Doesn’t mean it’ll happen every time. In fact, the timing, which helped Ariana last year will hurt her this year. I see Taylor and Billie both ahead of her.

    I think it’s clearly between Taylor and Billie at this point.

    You’re well aware that Ariana has a whole soundtrack coming around by November, including the lead single which will surely be a moderate hit. Hell, she could release another album for all we know.

    If Lover ends up like Reputation, it’ll be forgotten by December.

    Dude, you are obsessed with Ariana.

    Taylor is not winning Pop Album and Ariana is definitely ahead of her (but isn’t winning either).

    Hell, Ed Sheeran is probably more likely to win than they are (and he’s not winning either!).

    I think its too soon to tell. If Taylor can pull out a strong radio hit, I actually think she will win. Reputation too me was a significant drop in quality and a lot of songs on Lover are quite good.

    Honey, posters thought Reputation would win Best Pop Vocal Album when it first came out. Taylor Swift is NOT an automatic when she releases.

    reputation isn’t an album that appealed to everyone. Lover however is right up voters ally. It’s an album full of love and beautiful songwriting. This is Taylor’s best album to date. The Grammys would be cesto ignore this masterpiece.

    I wouldn’t say that Lover is Taylor’s best album to date, but it’s definitely in the top echelon. I did not expect to be saying that after how bad the two singles for it were.

    Reputation was not a good album though. It had a few decent songs but the quality just wasnt there. She didn’t deserve to win. Ariana rightfully won. Lover might end up being Taylor’s highest rated album on metacritic. A pop vocal album win isn’t out of the question.
