    Are y’all sure “Pick Up Your Feelings” won’t be in R&B Performance? I feel like it’s more contemporary than traditional. “On It” is more traditional to me.

    I feel like she would submit GLM before On It but we’ll see. It could go either way but I think she’s gonna submit Tragic to R&B performance and Pick up Your Feelings everywhere else.

    “Girl Like Me” is probably too modern to be considered “traditional,” and it runs the risk of getting snubbed because only one H.E.R. performance can be recognized per performance category. I just have this feeling that PUYF will be Jazmine’s R&B Performance submission.

    I was referring to GLM to R&B Performance and then PUYF to Traditional.

    I don’t think “On It” is Traditional. But i can see her doing that to maximize her nods. She doesn’t have that many Traditional songs off the album which is why I wouldn’t write off the label submitting her for Progressive R&B. As long as they split her and H.E.R I’ll be good

    Same thing applies. “Damage” is competing for R&B Performance. So, it’s either that or GLM, not both. “Damage” is the bigger hit, so its chances are much bigger.

    In other news, Sevyn Streeter’s album is really good. Would love for her to get into Progressive R&B. She’s overdue for a Grammy nom IMO. Before I Do should’ve won Traditional R&B Performance

    Not exactly R&B field, but I wonder if Mariah could notch a nom for her audiobook

    There’s quite a lot of songs from R&B girls that could have a chance

    • “Wild Side” — Normani (feat. Cardi B)
    • “Pressure” — Ari Lennox
    • “Altar” — Kehlani
    • “Ur Best Friend” — Kiana Ledé (feat. Kehlani)
    • “Have Mercy” — Chlöe

    If there’s any chance that these make it I only see them making in R&B Song.

    R&B Performance:
    Chloe – “Have Mercy”
    GIVEON – “Heartbreak Anniversary”
    SZA – “Good Days”
    Jazmine Sullivan & H.E.R. – “Girl Like Me” (wishful thinking)
    Kehlani – “Altar” (wishful thinking)

    Traditional R&B Performance:
    Silk Sonic – “Leave the Door Open”
    Jazmine Sullivan – “Pick Up Your Feelings”
    Andra Day – “Strange Fruit”
    Jennifer Hudson – “Ain’t No Way”
    Jam & Lewis & Babyface – “He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It”

    R&B Song:
    “Leave the Door Open” (Silk Sonic)
    “Damage” (H.E.R.)
    “Pick Up Your Feelings” (Jazmine Sullivan)
    “Good Days” (SZA)
    “Heartbreak Anniversary” (GIVEON)

    I feel like a lot of the albums are interchangeable this year between R&B Album and Progressive R&B Album… probably can’t predict until I see which albums are submitted where.

    Have Mercy is not going to get nominated. Wild Side has a better shot

    ‘Before I Do’ is an underrated R&B gem. I am disgusted by how the industry hypes mediocrity from the likes of Chole and SheMeHer while ignoring the pure talent of Sevyn.

    Perhaps, but Cicely Tyson is a lock for a posthumous win.

    Thoughts on the new Giveon single, ‘For Tonight’? If it becomes a hit I could see it getting nominated in Best R&B Song.

    It’s really nice but no way he submits this over Heartbreak Anniversary in R&B. If his team his smart they submit this to Pop Solo Performance or wait until the 2023 Grammys to submit this.

    Is Heartbreak Anniversary eligible? As it was on the Take Time EP and that was nominated last year?
