    Brittany Howard is a serious threat for AOTY if the line up favours her.

    You can see RS coverage of her perfomance on CBS morning here:

    Brittany Howard is a serious threat for AOTY if the line up favours her.

    how are we going to say she is serious contender if she lost her awards last year towards another AOTY nominee from last year.  She is not a serious contender. It’s between Taylor Swift and The Weeknd.

    Albums of the Year:

    After Hours~The Weeknd
    Fetch the Bolt Cutters~Fiona Apple
    RTJ4~Run the Jewels
    What’s Your Pleasure~Jessie Ware
    The Slow Rush~Tame Impala
    Circles~Mac Miller
    folklore~Taylor Swift
    How I Am Feeling Now~Charli XCX
    SAWAYAMA~Rina Sawayama
    The GOAT-Polo G
    Women in Music Volume Part III-HAIM
    Lianne La Havas~Lianne La Havas
    YHLQMDLG~Bad Bunny
    Punisher~Phoebe Bridgers
    The Strokes~The New Abnormal
    græ~Moses Sumney
    2017-2019~A.A.L.
    Ungodly Hour~Chloe x Halle
    ALIAS~Shygirl

    I said if the line-up favours her, we should think what message the Grammys 2021 want to give. With what happened this year, nobody can surely say what the AOTY line up will look like in the end.

    FYC Grammys 2021

    Folklore, best-selling album of 2020, 8 weeks #1 on BB200

    Nominated for Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album

    Cardigan, #1 hit single off Folklore

    Nominated for Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance

    Exile, top10 hit single off Folklore

    Nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance

    Ultimately, we’ll only know when we have the full line-up. Until then, it’s a consensus that After Hours and Folklore are the front-runners.

    I believe we’ll have another boring sweep given how lazy the voters are and how the narrative and politics are favoring him. It’s a wide open category this year.

    Breaking down the main contenders in AOTY (including some picks I think that will make into the top 20), based on trending line-up and submissions:

    Pop: After Hours, Folklore
    Alternative: Jaime, Fetch the Bolt Cutters, The Slow Rush
    R&B: Over It, Ungodly Hour
    Rap: Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, RTJ4, My Turn
    Country: The Highwomen, What You See Is What You Get, Gaslighter

    You don’t consider Fine Line for pop ? A voter said she lives Watermelon Sugar, I think for pop he is highly considered.

    So here’s what GD current odds look like:

    The Weeknd, After Hours
    Dua Lipa, Future Nostalagia
    Fiona Apple, Fetch The Bolt Cutters
    Taylor Swift, Folklore
    Post Malone, Hollywood’s Bleeding
    Lady Gaga, Chromatica
    Harry Styles, Fine Line
    Roddy Rich, Excuse Me For Being Antisocial

    I can see 4-5 of these missing.

    Gaga is probably being the most overestimated of that bunch. Some will say Post Malone, but his old album is still doing well right now.

    I have him as a long shot, nowhere close to After Hours and Folklore. He’s getting votes from pop but I think he’s a wildcard from other genres and commitee push.

    Another iteration I came up with. I would feel very confident in this one.

    Popular picks 

    Megan Thee Stallion – Suga

    The Weeknd – After Hours

    Taylor Swift – Folklore

    Roddy Rich – Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial 

    Prestige picks 

    Bob Dylan – Rough and Rowdy Ways

    Fiona Apple – Fetch the Bolt Cutters

    Brittany Howard – Jaime 

    Country pick 

    The Highwomen – The Highwomen

    I can see 4-5 of these missing.

    Dua Lipa, Future Nostalagia
    Post Malone, Hollywood’s Bleeding
    Lady Gaga, Chromatica
    Harry Styles, Fine Line

    These ones. Both Harry and Post have more chances to make it but these four are the most vulnerable ones.

    Folklore can also miss. I think the only album that I can’t see missing under any circumstances is After Hours. But all the others have some vulnerabilities.
