    Could someone break down the difference between Traditional R&B & Straight R&B?

    In some cases it’s obvious to differentiate with some songs and sometimes it isn’t for me.

    It’s very hard to differentiate sometimes but I’d say the main thing is Production. Songs that are more contemporary are moreso leaning towards hip hop beats and faster uptempos while traditional R&B is focused more on the delivery. Think – Blues, Soul, Jazz (sometimes) elements.

    A stark comparison would be Andra Day vs. Summer Walker.

    Get real!  Doja Cat’s Planet Her is NOT happening in Best Progressive R&B Album.  That crap will be submitted to Best Pop Vocal Album.

    Is “Body” eligible? That song is old news.

    Hey. For this year, no unfortunately. I think “Ungodly Hour” by Chloe x Halle have been nominated this past Grammy season. (Grammys 2020/2021) 63rd Grammys. Chloe x Halle also received the following nominations: 63RD ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS (2020)

    BEST TRADITIONAL R&B PERFORMANCE

    • Wonder What She Thinks Of Me

    BEST PROGRESSIVE R&B ALBUM

    • Ungodly Hour

    Thank you! I ask only because someone above has Ungodly Hour in their predictions for this year and I’m very unfamiliar with the eligibility rules for the Grammys, as it’s my first time predicting it, so I was unsure if I was uninformed on if there were any rules saying Ungodly Hour could compete again.

    Yes, it is. Tracks from Grammy nominated albums are eligible only the year after nominated, provided the album didn’t win. If the album did win, the track is only eligible if it’s an alternate version that’s not on the Grammy winning version of the album, only in ROTY + performance categories (hence why Levitating is eligible, for example).

    FYC - Lil Nas X
    MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) - ROTY, SOTY, Best Pop Solo Perf., Best Music Video
    INDUSTRY BABY - Best Melodic Rap Perf., Best Rap Song
    MONTERO - AOTY, Best Pop Vocal Album

    Back of My Mind is more Progressive than Heaux Tales. The themes Jazmine explores aren’t traditional but the music is.

    I disagree. I think H.E.R has like 5 contemporary R&B records on her album but when you take into account the album’s length, that’s not even 30% of the album. I think Jazmine in Progressive is a safe bet. Songs like Put It Down, The Other Side, Price Tags etc are not traditional.

    She released it as a single late last year. And the video was released this year. It’s definitely a long shot but I think Summer was so disrespected last year that I’m Hoping they give her a makeup nomination somewhere.

    The R&B committee did Summer Walker dirty. She deserved a nomination for Over It.

    Lol. Heaux Tales is definitely less contemporary than Back of My Mind.

    Yeah, I still have ‘Heaux Tales’ in Best Progressive R&B Album… But then again, I’m fighting myself with this one because ’24k Magic’ won Best R&B Album and I think it should’ve been in Progressive R&B. We’ll have to wait and see where it is submitted.
