    Kendrick was undeniable in 2017. Album sales + rave critical acclaim + #1 single. Yet he lost to Bruno Mars.

    Is Bruno Mars white? He was actually an R&B contender that year. They even snubbed the white mega-seller Ed Sheeran.

    It’s not like someone doesnt win a Gramny because they are black, maybe a white artist was just more undeniable that year. Billie was bigger than Lizzo in every single way, same with Adele and Taylor. They were just undeniable. When a black-artist gets a Diamond-album he will win an AOTY too. Dont forget how a black rap artist Childish Gambino beat one of the baitest songs ever. They are not racist.

    Do you really think that only 10 black people deserved to win aoty in history? I think this fact alone proves how racist they are.

    Why. It is true though. White artist this year are getting more critical acclaim. It is not racist if someone prefers more traditional music which is 90% from white artists. It is idiotic to say a black artist has to win AOTY while a white artist might deserve it more. I hope the grammys stick to which albums they like the most and dont pander to THE BLM movement and someone wins just because of that.

    two things:

    1. I’m pretty sure he/she wasn’t upset that white people have the biggest amount of critical acclaim,  hell Run the Jewels have the second biggest album of critical acclaim. The issue is comparing races or ethnicities as what is better.
    2. I think it’s idiotic that music lovers have to wait a decade while Black artists whether it’s Kendrick to Beyoncé to Cardi B or Frank Ocean to win AOTY. That’s what’s idiotic. I honestly don’t care about if they are deserving, hell the Grammys don’t even care. I think now it’s if Black artist deserve a seat at the table and now people are allowed to say “well that Black person doesn’t deserve it then that white artist”. Then we can have that conversation.

    He wasn’t black either. SZA was a better R&B contender but they snubbed her too. They blocked Ed Sheeran because they’re scared of the backlash of another Adele vs Beyonce situation. But they tried to make Bruno’s album is like it’s the second coming of Thriller lol.

    Yet Beyonce lost to Beck. When a black artist has the most commercially successful album of the year, they lose. When a black artist has the most critically acclaimed album of the year, they still lose.

    Beyonce wasnt even second that year. She lost the genre Grammy to another AOTY nominee. Actually Sam Smith was probably the second and he had the biggest era that year.

    Also why does a black artist have to have a diamond album in order to win? Did Kacey need one? Sure didn’t. Plus, Janelle’s album was more critically acclaimed than Golden Hour that year but she lost.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I just hope they dont pander to the BLM movement. And yes, if The weeknd (who has the biggest chane put of black artists this year) wins AOTY he would deserve it less than Fiona and Taylor.</p>

    couple more things.

    1. What about the times that Black artist are undeniable as Black artists and still lose? For example Beyoncé in 2015 losing to Beck and Kendrick in 2018 losing to Bruno Mars.

    2. Billie Eilish was vulnerable in ROTY. Lil Nas X has the biggest number one in history and probably deserved ROTY by fusing trap and country, yet was given to Bad Guy, a smaller hit.
    3. I don’t think Black artists have to make “diamond-album”, they shouldn’t have to make safe music to win awards. They should be able to cuss and talk about topics that are taboo rather then being cut out.

    When a black artist has the most commercially successful album of the year, they lose.

    The only examples this century where this was the case were Kendrick in 2017 (debatable that it was Ed Sheeran, but in any case he had the biggest album nominated for AOTY), Alicia Keys in 2008, 50 Cent in 2003 and 2005, and Usher in 2004.

    Alicia and 50 didn’t get the nominations, Kendrick obviously lost, and Usher lost to another black artist, albeit recently deceased

    Already happened semi-recently with Usher, even if Ray Charles hadn’t died, he still probably would have lost to Green Day

    Beyoncé clearly was not undeniable in 2015 since she lost her genre nomination to Pharrell. And Sam Smith had a massive year as well.

    Also, Lil Nas deserving ROTY on the basis of quality is an absolute joke. Billie 100% deserved it.

    After Hours deserves it more than Folklore. He served an actual era since the start of the year (/late last year). Taylor is just a one-week spectacle.

    She should have been though, not saying she was. She had the biggest album of the bunch and had the most critical acclaim. It would only seem fair.

    Lil Nas X had the biggest song of the year and had pretty interesting production. I prefer the Billie win, but she was vulnerable in the category by both Sunflower and Old Town Road for not being the biggest hit.
