    Exactly. Nothing else to say because you know I’m correct. Bye Boz!

    Speaking of actual R&B, here are the current frontrunners…

    R&B Perf – Giveon, “Heartbreak Anniversary” or H.E.R., “Damage”
    Traditional/R&B Song – Silk Sonic, “Leave the Door Open”
    R&B Album – Jazmine Sullivan, Heaux Tales
    Progressive R&B – Arlo Parks, Collapsed in Sunbeams

    R&B Album could really be H.E.R., Giveon, Silk Sonic, Lucky Daye, & Jazmine Sullivan. Whew, the talent.

    Progressive is relatively quiet right now. If SZA manages to release she could easily win that.

    I really think Jazmine should submit Pick Up Your Feelings to traditional… the other song categories are super competitive. She needs some space away from HER and Silk Sonic (fingers crossed they won’t submit in that category lmao)

    also I completely forgot to include Leave The Door Open in my nominations, but it will obviously show up somewhere, if not both categories. It’s a crazy year.

    And yeah, SZA is a fool if she doesn’t release her album in this cycle.

    I’m nervous for Jazmine. Without a committee she might have a harder time avoiding stiff competition. H.E.R. & Silk Sonic are serious threats.

    However, the R&B Field is infamous for giving out “make up awards”. So maybe there will be a major snub that could allow her an easier path to victory. She’s way overdue for a Grammy & Heaux Tales is the best album of 2021 (so far).

    TBH Bieber or a Pop artist would be more likely/ find it easier to be nominated in Melodic Rap (Sung/Performance)* than on R&B.

    And a Rap artist is going to be more likely to be nominated in R&B and vice versa before he will/does.

    (That’s why if he ever does, I presume is where the huge absurd wt* reactions are from)

    Honey, Lizzo will probably release before September 30th and win Best Progressive R&B Album.

    My updated predictions:

    Best R&B Performance:

    • Good Days (SZA)
    • How Much Can A Heart Take (Lucky Daye feat. Yebba)
    • Leave the Door Open (Silk Sonic)
    • Pick Up Your Feelings (Jazmine Sullivan)
    • Heartbreak Anniversary (Giveon)

    Best Traditional R&B Performance:

    • On It (Jazmine Sullivan feat. Ari Lennox)
    • Letter 2 U (BJ The Chicago Kid)
    • Same Space? – Remix (Tiana Major9 & SiR)
    • Addicted (Joyce Wrice)
    • Last Time (Giveon feat. Snoh Aalegra)

    Best R&B Song

    • Good Days (SZA)
    • Leave the Door Open (Silk Sonic)
    • Calling My Phone (Lil Tjay feat. 6LACK)
    • Heartbreak Anniversary (Giveon)
    • Damage (H.E.R.)

    Best Progressive R&B Album

    • Anniversary (Bryson Tiller)
    • Featuring Ty Dolla $ign (Ty Dolla $ign)
    • An Evening with Silk Sonic (Silk Sonic)
    • PINK PLANET (Pink Sweat$)
    • Overgrown (Joyce Wrice)

    Best R&B Album

    • Alicia (Alicia Keys)
    • Heaux Tales (Jazmine Sullivan)
    • Table For Two (Lucky Daye)
    • Homegrown (VanJess)
    • When It’s All Said and Done…Take Time (Giveon)

    Pretty confident for Jazmine and Giveon that they will get at least one Grammy. I was also confident for SZA winning for “Good Days” but now I’m starting to see that not happening, at least for that song, not sure what’s in store with her next album. I also predict H.E.R.’s album to be nominated but I’ll have to listen to it first to see what category to put it in.

    Get real!  Giveon, “Heartbreak Anniversary” is NOT winning Best R&B Song.

    Y’all need to expect only BIG names to be nominated this year. I know we’re all use to smaller R&B acts getting in thanks to the committees, but those days will be done this year.

    I love Arlo Parks, but I even fear she might not be big enough to be nom’d this year.

    And for better or worse, I feel like that means people like Alicia Keys or older veteran acts like the new Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis album will have an easier time scoring noms.

    Progressive R&B is so weak right now that obscure acts can easily get in. Unless Beyoncé, Lizzo, Miguel, Rihanna, or SZA release, a critically acclaimed album from Arlo Parks could win.

    Alicia Keys is a Grammy vet & definitely respected within the industry but her album is long forgotten.

    I’m expecting the Jam & Lewis project to be in R&B album. I guess we’ll have to wait for submission lists, but it’s not like we’re ignoring major names to do our Progressive R&B predictions. Even if Alicia is nominated, there’s still room for new/smaller acts.

    This would make sense if this was 2007 and R&B was still dominating. We shouldn’t expect “only” big names in a genre that isn’t really mainstream. Still, look to what’s trending on Urban Adult Contemporary, not Billboard Hot 100. R&B voters have proven that they like what they like, regardless of the panels.
