    No one has posted why Abel is #1 in AOTY. Not the most successful album. Not the most acclaimed. Not the most buzzed about album.

    It’s a combo of all those aspects, cause he’s strong with commercial success, acclaim, a narrative, etc. but not necessarily the strongest at any one.

    The commercial success of After Hours is highly exaggerated. It’s getting beat by a Lil Baby album and is barely top 10 right now. Still below that Post Malone album after several weeks.

    “Blinding Lights” is his biggest chance at marquee recognition. AOTY is hardly a lock.

    Yeah I agree it’s not a lock yet. But I think it’s in top 3 heading for a win.

    Oh, they’re not snubbing white female artists just because of the climate either. That’s ridiculous.

    Yall do know that AOTY doesn’t have to go to The Weeknd or Taylor right? Like more people released music.

    I was just giving an answer to a post about Taylor and Weeknd. I’m still allowed to, right?

    God how I wish RTJ could feasibly win AOTY. That album was by far the best I’ve listened to this year.

    Not much to see here I’m afraid...

    Simply because it’s the least controversial choice for the Grammys. It recieved moderate acclaim and fairly big success. It also helps that it has one of the biggest songs this year. Not to mention, it is way past time for a black artist to win.

    AOTY: After Hours, Fetch The Boltcutters, Folklore, Future Nostalgia, K Bye For Now, Magdalene, Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, Punisher

    Saying it is “a joke” is your personal opinion, not the collective one.

    Clearly it was the collective opinion of Grammy voters too, so moving on

    Your “just as acclaimed” narrative also crumbles when you look at the fact that Billie’s album dominated year-end lists, while not only did Lil Nas not crack any significant ones, his AOTY nomination was viewed as a joke by the media, and by most people.

    The debate about explicit tracks is 100% irrelevant. Not only does it not matter since voters are creatives, so most of them aren’t prudes, but we’ve seen albums and songs with strong language win in topline categories several times before. Please stop this myth that it’s at all a factor.

    Yea, but leaving out the album, “Old Town Road” was one of the most acclaimed songs of 2019. Both versions of the song were in the top 20. So, not really a “joke.”

    Still, “Old Town Road” had the disadvantage of being viewed as a meme and a silly song, regardless of how much people liked it. Billie didn’t have that issue.

    “Old Town Road” got lost in the Billie Eilish shuffle. That’s all it was. It still won Pop Duo/Group and its video won Music Video. That’s more than what you originally predicted for it to do. I cannot with you still trying to minimize OTR as just a “joke” or “meme” song, even after it has proven to be more than that.

    And Lil Baby and Post Malone are winning. How am I delusional btw? I’ve supplied evidence. Y’all just can’t handle that Abel is on top.

    If you are in the US, vote! It’s important if live in the following swing states: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

    None of them are winning. My point was to say that the success of AH is very exaggerated. The biggest and most memorable thing about the era is “Blinding Lights.” If AH wins, it’s because it rode the success of that song and because the voters might want to make a black artist happen there. I still don’t see it happening. I also don’t see a GF sweep happening so soon after the Billie sweep.
