    Megan Thee Stallion for BNA. I’m not sure how much it would be true, but nonetheless I’m happy.

    ROTY & SOTY: Blinding Lights & Don’t Start Now
    BNA: Megan Thee Stallion or Rina Sawayama

    Kanye is so annoying always announcing his release dates and then releasing at like 3 AM after the day he was supposed to release, or missing his release date multiple times and scrapping the entire album. I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up that he would actually release on schedule, but I really wanted to hear Wash Us in the Blood today.

    And I cannot stop laughing at Virgil Abloh’s cover art for Pop Smoke’s posthumous album, coming out this Friday. Twitter is crucifying Virgil right now, it is that bad. Supposedly the album is very good though but I haven’t heard it. Grammys love posthumous music considering Nipsey’s wins last year even though no one gave a shit about his music while he was alive. Pop Smoke will be a harder sell to the Grammys since they don’t like that type of rap.

    The only way for the Gf to split is if whoever is the favorite to win Record doesn’t get into SOTY. I’m pretty sure the AOTY winner is not gonna win ROTY and/or SOTY.

    FYC: Conan Gray - Best New Artist
    Kid Krow - AOTY, Pop Vocal Album
    The Story, Comfort Crowd - SOTY
    Maniac - ROTY, Pop Solo Perf

    FYC: Run the Jewels
    RTJ4 - AOTY, Best Rap Album
    walking in the snow - ROTY, SOTY, Rap Song, Rap Perf

    FYC: Ariana Grande
    Rain On Me (w/Lady Gaga): ROTY, SOTY, Pop DG Perf, BMV
    Nobody (w/ Chaka Khan) - Trad R&B Perf.

    I’m sure there is no consensus that The Weeknd is “overdue.” He’s definitely not.

    Doesnt that work with my example: he literally was the frontrunner back in 2012, yet lost even though at that time he was a seasoned veteran?

    No, it doesn’t prove your point, because his past nominations in those mainline categories shows they don’t have a problem with ex-boy band members. Obviously they shut Justin out for other reasons – they wouldn’t randomly decide to shut him out for being a former boy bander when they had already given him nominations in those categories.

    And I strongly disagree with the assumption that he was the frontrunner to win AOTY, considering he lost Pop Vocal Album to Bruno Mars (and may not have even been second, since he lost Pop Solo Performance to another nominee in that category), and lost Pop Duo/Group Performance to the eventual AOTY winners.

    And speaking of Daft Punk, Random Access Memories was super, super baity with its homage to the ’70s, emphasis on live instrumentation, and regard for music history, not to mention it had crossover appeal to pop, rock, and R&B fans. It was winning with or without JT in that lineup.

    Honey, I do NOT know how anyone can be so sure the Album of the Year winner won’t win Record of the Year and/or Song of the Year.

    The Weeknd is not overdue anything 💀. I’ve never seen any push for him to win AOTY the same way it happened for Kendrick and Beyoncé and that would only be his 2nd nomination anyway. Nowhere near overdue

    Because Circles is the biggest hit of the eligibility period and I feel like it’s a song that appeals to many voters across different genres. 

    This definition is also true for Old Town Road. And it lost.

    Sis just because you have released a bomb ass album, like House of Balloons, doesn’t mean you are “overdue”. Abel is deserving, but not overdue. He was nominated once, and he did not deserve to win against To Pimp a Butterfly.

     

    Anyways, Ill wait until Post Malone releases a record that is on par with House of Balloons.

    homeboy was literally the frontrunner in AOTY, ROTY and SOTY, yet got payed dust in 2013. And there’s no boyband bias.

    I guess when I said that he is overdue, I didn’t mean that there was a big push for him to win on some specific year that he was snubbed like Beyoncé and Kendrick. I just mean more generally that someone as prolific and influential as The Weeknd seems like a more deserving AOTY winner than at least half of our recent winners like Beck.

    This is the first time that the stars have aligned for The Weeknd at the Grammys. His rise to fame was gradual over the course of several albums instead of meteoric like Billie Eilish being a smash on her debut. The Weeknd was simply not famous enough at the time for HoB to have won AOTY, and all his subsequent albums have been too pop or just lacking the sentiment and feeling to be an AOTY winner.

    I am so mad that Kanye trolled us all again. But whenever he does get around to releasing WUITB, it’s over for everyone.

    By the way do you think somebody big will get completely snubbed this year? In the last two years we had Halsey and Ed completely left out despite both having one of the biggest songs of the year.

    About the whole Post situation, i wouldn’t be surprised if he’s left out of AOTY. It wouldn’t be the first time that a huge white male artist is ignored. I still think he will make it though, in my opinion he will get in AOTY and ROTY and maybe ignored in SOTY.
