    I don’t trust leaks, I listened to the Rise- Katy Perry leak years ago and it played a random dance song by an unknown artist

    Fine Line is up 28% in streams over the last day after the Golden music video release. If the song does well and boosts his other singles too, he may really have a shot at the AOTY nomination. That would be another post-album single success.

    This won’t have any affect on nominations since they’re already decided

    Isn’t only the first round done? Final 8 hasn’t been decided right?

    Just the Pop ones. General Field noms aren’t decided yet.

    Grammys typically reward music reflective of a given year: lyrics relevant to a social movement, innovative production, artists with a breakout year. Pop acts / albums can be that. Adele didn’t win because of X weeks #1 on BB200, though. Pop, by definition, has mainstream appeal / should have strong commercial performance. Billie swept because she 1. checked all boxes of a Pop act (sales, streams, hits) AND 2. had a narrative. She was inescapable in 2020: new artist, different look / sound (via her brother), and had begun to impact Pop music trends.

    Why would the Grammys select Folkore, a Pop album by the biggest star in the biz that 90% of GP are unaware of, hasn’t spawned 1 hit, was inspired by the sound of artists like LDR, and was irrelevant in a year dominated by 2 major political/societal movements? Clearly, fans + the overrated (to gauge ‘acclaim’) MC agree Folkore is her best work; these (reviews, sales, records) are its wins.

    Sure, Folkore – and TS/Pop acts in general – will always be contenders in a pure vote. Pretending, though, there is some pervasive rationale (i.e., 6+ weeks at #1 on BB200) vs. a literal popularity contest is disingenuous. Whenever there’s looked to be a concerted effort to recognize an album/artist, it wasn’t for a hugely popular, mainstream artist whose album made so little noise outside a fanbase that to say it will be “forgotten” is misleading.

    ‘kay. Who do you think is winning? Who checks all these boxes in 2020?

    ”90% of the GP is unaware of” somehow I doubt that’s true. It does also have the narrative of a quarantine album.

    Taylor haters keep trying this narrative that Taylor is copying Lana just cause she did an alternative album. there are literally no similarities in folklore and nfr. that’s like saying lover and tun are the same album just cause they are both pop when in reality they are very different.

    Half of the tracks from Fine Line now have at least a Gold certification. Two are platinum and then another two are at least 2x platinum. Sunflower Vol. 6 is also near certification to make it 7/12 tracks.
