    Hopefully, The Weeknd does not come through with a thoroughly mediocre album by the deadline to take SZA’s grammy. One can hope.

    Get real!  “My Hair” by Ariana Grande could NOT be submitted to Best Traditional R&B Performance.  There is nothing traditional about that song.  #CategoryFraud

    The R&B field has become a cluster f*ck of randomness and unpredictability.

    Say if Beyoncé releases a HUGE album, will the committee snub her after giving “Black Parade” love? Or will this be the year H.E.R. finally falls out of favor with voters?

    You never know. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    Hopefully the R&B committee moves on from H.E.R. Kinda doubt it since shes allegedly dropping an Album this year. Hopefully she doesnt sweep. Jazmine deserves her flowers. Maybe Progressive R&B for Jazmine and H.E.R can take R&B ALbum.

    Best Traditional R&B Performance:

    ON It F/ Ari Lennox – Jazmine Sullivan.

    The Ari collab is better than the H.E.R collab to me. Hopefully she submits that to Traditional and submit Pick Up Your Feelings to R&B performance and R&B song.

    Jazmine & H.E.R. on one track is Best R&B Song bait. They’re two of the most prolific songwriters in their genre. I would be surprised if that missed.

    I PRAY Ari Lennox finally breaks through. She’s been killing the game for a couple years now with 0 notices by voters.

    After finally awarding Tanya Tucker last year and Nas this year, the Academy seems to be attempting to award overdue artists. So Jazmine Sullivan & Ledisi may be the next in line to finally win. That also applies to SZA even though she’s been around for 5 mins.

    FYC:

    Record of the Year: Hit Different by SZA ft. Pharrell Williams & co.
    Song of the Year: Good Days by SZA ft. Jacob Collier

    Ari’s mouth and attitude is what’s holding back her career. She has a little bit of that toxic Azealia Banks energy in her. I hope she fixes that and don’t let it manifest because she’s a great talent.
