    Is it normal for most of these list to have little/no correlation with Grammy AOTY nominations?!

    The albums list seem to be less mainstream than previous years?

    Is it normal for most of these list to have little/no correlation with Grammy AOTY nominations?!

    Some of the more indie music publications release their lists before the end of November and often the more mainstream review sites post theirs a little later.

    But yes, the Grammys are more mainstream, so you usually need a big hit/big sales or have good connections/be well known in the industry.

    Arooj seems to be doing pretty well on these. Seems like she wasn’t as much of a random nomination as I originally thought she was.

    Give Ariana DeBose an oscar

    These lists are mostly just reminding me how much of a weak year for music this was compared to last year.
