    Doja Cat with Cybersex and whatever PJ Morton submits. I also think Nobody by Chaka Khan and Ariana Grande is getting submitted in Trad or Perf.
    Also Underdog is a Pop song.

    No particular order.

    R&B Performance
    1. Jacob Collier & Daniel Caesar – Time Alone with You
    2. The Weeknd – Heartless/Scared To Live
    3. Jhené Aiko & H.E.R – BS
    4. Doja Cat – CyberSex
    5. PJ Morton feat. JoJo – Say So (Acoustic)

    R&B Song
    1. SZA & Justin Timberlake – The Other Side
    2. Jhené Aiko & H.E.R – BS
    3. The Weeknd – Heartless/Scared To Live
    4. Summer Walker feat. Usher – Come Thru
    5. Tory Lanez feat. Chris Brown – The Take

    Urban Contemporary Album
    1. The Weeknd – After Hours
    2. Doja Cat – Hot Pink
    3. Jhené Aiko – Chilombo
    4. Jessie Reyez – Before Love Came to Kill Us
    5. Tinashe – Songs For You

    I think Summer is going for R&B Album a la Ella Mai.

    FYC: Joji – Best New Artist
    Nectar – Album of The Year, Best Alternative Album
    Run – ROTY, SOTY, Rock Song, Rock Performance
    Gimme Love - Best Music Video

    FYC: Ariana Grande
    Rain On Me: ROTY, Pop Duo/Group Performance
    Imagine - SOTY, Pop Solo Performance
    Nobody (w/ Chaka Khan) - Best Trad R&B Perf.

    Usher & Ella Mai on a track is Grammy cat nip.

    That song is a lock.

    R&B Performance
    5. PJ Morton feat. JoJo – Say So (Acoustic)

    Just out of curiosity, why do you think this nomination would be likely to happen if they passed over nominating the original version this year and already gave it a Grammy Award win in R&B Song?

    “Say So” isn’t that big of hit to get nominated 2 years in a row. They like PJ Morton, so I’m sure he might have another contender in play. JoJo might even be a contender with either her own single “Man” or her collaboration with Tank on “Somebody Else.”

    They love PJ Morton. They’re gonna nominate whatever he submits; I just put that as a place-holder.

    Also, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a hit or not. First Began got nominated two years in a row, first for R&B Song and then for R&B Performance (the live version). The same could happen with Say So.

    Deborah Cox could be the breakthrough vet of the year. It’s hard to believe she’s never been nominated !

    Ledisi is releasing new music next month. Where is her GRAMMY ? -_-

    Surely The Other Side will go to Pop, no?

    I pray Justin Bieber isn’t nominated in the R&B Field….

    He only apologized for using the N-word out of convenience.

    The panel better NOT forget.

    Doja Cat will never touch an R&B Performance nomination.
