    This is why people can’t stand swifties. You guys really say the worst shit ever.

    There is nothing wrong with what he said though (assuming he even is a Swiftie). They are both critical peaks but Folklore is praised and hyped more for the actual quality of music whereas a big part of Lemonade was the visuals and marital affair/controversy. If anything ,voters would prefer the former over the latter.

    I don’t think it’s as undeniable as Lemonade. That was a genuine pop culture moment that had longstanding rippling affects (not here to compare sales), and Beyonce didn’t have two AOTY Grammys already. But I do see a similar type of calculation with both projects. And I think they’ll reap similar results awards wise.

    you can’t compare these two women. Both of their albums are the highlights of their careers. Yes Taylor’s has only been out for a week but the reception critical/commercial/public has been undeniably positive and people are digging it. Tbh the only negativity I’ve seen is from posters on here. But GD hates females. There’s been literally negative backlash towards: Dua, Gaga, Fiona etc. This place is so damn toxic and negative.

    I had Fiona initially for AOTY, but she’s not doing anything to campaign. I think they’ll give it to the Weeknd. He’s respected by the Academy and there isn’t really anything controversial about giving him AOTY.

    But The Weeknd’s album is a dud, a thud and dud. So yeah it’ll probably win.

    What can she possibly do to campaign? We are in the middle of a global pandemic with even more cases rising. It’s like all the little monsters coming for Gaga for not doing anything else for Chromatica. There are no shows to go on, there are no concerts to perform, there is no sports events. What else as an artist can you do other than send a zoom call performance?

    And unless she gives in to the considerable pressure her label must have her under to AT LEAST perform at some late night show, it’ll stay that way 🙁

    Don’t act like you’ve been above the pettiness and shade throwing. But also, your post doesn’t have much to do with what I said. I think Lemonade and Forklore are both good albums. (Though there’s a couple of Beyonce albums I prefer over Lemonade. Just as there are a couple of Swift albums I prefer over Forklore). While independent of how you feel towards the albums’ quality, Beyoncé and Swift are huge stars, and there was some calculation to garner acclaim, buzz and awards based off the way the albums were released, the aesthetics of the albums and building a weighty narrative around the albums. In those regards, they’re comparable.

    Honey, bullshit!  Artists are doing virtual performances on talk shows.  Fiona Apple could do that from her home.

    She has no social media. So, that in general means that the public can’t keep an eye on her. And most of these celebs have gotten extra personal and social media obsessed in these quarantine times. But yes, she could have done some zoom performances when the album was released and definitely could have released some type of music video by this point. I also feel like there may be some discourse between Fiona and her label since they wanted to release that album much later than April. She could still do some form of promotion/“campaigning” by the year’s end but I doubt it. I actually feel like the lack of pandering and promo may assist Fiona in the long run or rather, it may not hurt her as much as some assume.

    Harry Styles was heavily discussed for AOTY last time he released an album, but this time he has also longevity with two big hits AY and WS, both amazing Grammy bait tracks.  He seems a lock in GF  SOTY/ROTY/AOTY.

    You should not underestimate him.

     

    FYC Grammys 2021

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

    No Lemonade was praised not only for the drama with her husband, but her representation of black women and representing African American culture in her visuals and songs. Her songs are just as strong as Folklore in terms of quality, and she deserved AOTY due to a more interesting and important narrative tbh relative to Folklore. She also had a strong message of making lemonade out of something bitter and told a captivating story through the album tracks. Not to mention the stunning sociopolitical poetry she had throughout the album. Unfortunately the Grammys was not ready to reward black artists for their art and they snubbed her.

    Sorry, Harry is not winning AOTY. There’s a chance he’ll get a filler nomination but no. I also don’t really see what track of his is getting into SOTY?

    Adore You. I don’t see Watermelon Sugar getting in anywhere. However we could see surprises and I wouldn’t say any song by him is on lock yet

    Cardigan won’t debut at #1

    It think it will. The sales from her stores will set her over the edge
