    Most of which are pop songs girl… love you but I gotta laugh that y’all call the alternative r&b/trap stuff trash.

    i just don’t think it’s a big departure from the stuff he has done before. He’s great. The album to me is just ok, it’s not a moment. I do like to listen to it these songs when high specially save your tears and hardest to love.

    thats a fair argument, but to be fair, Abel really hasn’t really went full retro on a full record, it’s always been the singles been great, Starboy and I Feel It Coming for example, but the rest falls short. Many people online, including me prefer Abel being consistent, as well as the synths on the album are very different from the ones are Starboy, they are more refined.

     

    also, the songwriting has been the most shocking part of the album, Abel is more vulnerable and more depressing. I think that’s what is different.

     

    The Same old thing on a record is not bad, but at least bring something new to the table, and that’s what Abel did.

    Honey, another white woman is NOT winning Album of the Year during this climate.  All hell would break loose.

    the issue isn’t Taylor Swift lol, it’s the Grammys. Awarding a white women 3 times before any Black artist too, as well as 4 of the past 5 winners have been white women is not a good look either. The cycle has to stop.

    Do y’all really think that Grammy Voters are going to forget all of the social & political injustices that has happened in 2020 and choose Taylor Swift, (someone who has already won AOTY twice) as their definitive winner? Can you imagine how bad of an image that will look on the Recording Academy? That they yet again, refused to give a person of color their biggest award of night. That they refused to give it to a group of artists who absolutely dominated 2020 with their incredible work. It’ll be a huge slap in the face towards artists of color, the Rap/ Hip Hop community, those who are fighting for social justice within the music industry, and all of those who want to see change within the Recording Academy. Their image is already bad enough, this will make them look worse. No disrespect towards Taylor and her incredible work, but it just won’t feel nor look right at all if she wins AOTY again. We are not in the 2010’s anymore. This is happening now, its real and I doubt the voters are going to forget about it when voting because we’ll still be going through it by then.

    No.

    Is he trolling or does he just know people in the industry and goes off of that?

    To be fair, the Grammys might spin it as well as “We gave ROTY and SOTY to The Weeknd and BNA to Megan Thee Stallion, so what else do you want?”

    But

    What is the problem of a woman winning again ? I dont have any issue whether a man/woman. It is not about the gender and Grammys were dragged for the 2018 results and then women swept next year with Kacey,Cardi,Dua,Gaga winning all televised awards. I think the Grammys are corresponding to the feedback. In 2017, people said Grammys so white after Lemonade losing, then in 2018 we have for the first time this groundbreaking line-up in AOTY and Ed Sheeran OUT. But 2018 had women losing and then it trended Grammys so masculine or something i am not sure. Next year they fixed it. What feedback they got from the 2020 ceremony ?
