    Get real!  2 Chainz’s & Ariana Grande’s awful “Rule the World” is NOT getting a Best Rap/Sung Performance nomination.  Delusion at its finest.

    Girl, you change your profile picture and screen name wayy too often. So many personalities to keep up with..

    So screw the Traditional R&B Performance category, huh? *rolls eyes* Anyway, here are my predictions for the only two categories I care about in the R&B field.

    Best Traditional R&B Performance

    “Enough” – Fantasia

    “Steady Love” – India.Arie

    “Make It Better” – Anderson .Paak ft. Smokey Robinson

    “Say So” – PJ Morton ft. JoJo

    “Something Keeps Calling” – Raphael Saadiq ft. Rob Bacon

    Best R&B Album

    Shea Butter Baby – Ari Lennox

    Caution – Mariah Carey

    Ella Mai – Ella Mai

    Ventura – Anderson .Paak

    Jimmy Lee – Raphael Saadiq

    R&B Performance is unpredictable; Unless Ella Mai repeats, R&B Song will be awarded to Khalid for “Talk”; and Lizzo will win Urban Contemporary Album, so listing the other nominees is pointless.

    Who am I? You will find out soon enough. Ciao...for now!
