I think as of now Dua is the frontrunner to win Pop Vocal Album. She has insane critical support, one really big hit, one song shaping up to be a hit and insane radio support. Also this era was huge worldwide. Plus she is already on the Grammy radar and they voted her for Best New Artist when H.E.R. was on the mix and Bebe just had one of the biggest hits of the year on the Hot 100.July 13, 2020 at 5:44 am #1203583445
It could be this year’s “Hey, Ma”.
Bon Iver have been nominated for every album, whether in GF or genre, they’ve released since their BNA win. And last year their Hey, Ma nomination was accompanied by an Album of the Year nom. That means they’ve been nominated in all four GF categories at one point or another. Kinda different situation to James Blake.
Two Hands, Big Thief -- "Shoulders"
Punisher, Phoebe Bridgers -- "Garden Song"
SAWAYAMA, Rina Sawayama -- "Snakeskin"
The Highwomen, The Highwomen -- "Highwomen"
The Slow Rush, Tame Impala -- "Breathe Deeper"
Fetch The Bolt Cutters, Fiona Apple -- "For Her"

Honey, while I do NOT think there is a “frontrunner” or “lock” in Best Pop Vocal Album, I can see Dua Lipa winning that category. The best selling album doesn’t always win there.July 13, 2020 at 6:07 am #1203583458
thinking about two opposite decisions made last year: one clever, one unfortunate.

- GIRL’s snub considering that Maren would receive 3-6 nods with The Highwomen this year and also eventually got a legitimate Hot 100 hit with GF buzz.
- Hadn’t Roddy Ricch won a Grammy last year, he would be the frontrunner for BNA at this point.
Frankly speaking, who can win BPVA?
lady gaga – lackluster album, moderate size hit, Not so great sales.
Harry – can win but boy band is connected to his name and had no history with grammys. So, he may or may not win.
Post malone – his album is so blend type to call it a pop record and he is 0/6 so, he can go 0/5 this time again.
Dua Lipa – brilliant album, bad sales in USA but huge in other countries. 2 chart toppers, and she can keep out multipe hit singles like levitating at the time of voting.
Overall, dua is going to win BPVA.July 13, 2020 at 6:49 am #1203583495
I was one of the delusional stans that predicted Rain On Me to get into ROTY but I’m sadly changing my mind, I feel like Gaga will only get 2 pop nods, winning one for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. I really wish she releases Alice/Fun Tonight/Free Woman as a single cause that would help her get also a Pop Solo nomination. Anyway winning one would still be good for her since her album in general was pretty underwhelming compared to the passion and hype she was surrounded by in the A Star Is Born era.
She had the movie, golden globe, oscar hype that time. It was deserved because SHALLOW was such a great song.
But her last 4 solo efforts/albums are underwhelming and very painful to listen.July 13, 2020 at 6:59 am #1203583513

The A Star Is Born soundtrack was really good and truly deserved its success. It’s such a shame she kind of fucked up her solo projects. ArtPop flopped hard and was just bad, Joanne would have been even more of a flop if it wasn’t for the Super Bowl that literally saved the era and Chromatica was saved by Ariana since we all saw how Stupid Love turned out….July 13, 2020 at 7:00 am #1203583518
Honey, it’s a wrap for Lady Gaga and Crapmatica.July 13, 2020 at 7:05 am #1203583527

If the SuperBowl could save an era it would’ve saved Justin Timberlake’s Man of the Woods. Also I think it took place like 4 months after Joanne’s release? Also Ariana couldn’t save her own songs, Stuck With You, Don’t Call Me Angel, Boyfriend. I’m not sure why you suggest she saved Chromatica. That’s giving her too much credit. People didn’t buy or listen to the whole album because Ariana was on one song. That’s delusional of you to say, to be honest.
