    So, Jhené, having the best selling R&B album of the year meams nothing? Not even one predicted nom lol

    Her album was the biggest (in sales) this time around.

    It was not. Summer’s album is split between years.

    If you’re taking the full run of Summer’s album and not just its 2020 units (which you should as the Grammy period is what matters):
    Over It – 1,374,000 (396K in 2019 BB200 YE + 978K in 2020 BB200 YE)
    Chilombo – 777,000 (only in 2020 BB200 YE)

    And this past week’s BB200 only has Summer 5 spots below Jhené despite her album being 4 months older… Over It is the biggest contender of the year.

    Umm.. I didn’t like her submissions. She went all in with BS and H.E.R is already over saturated in the R&B field . I could see her getting into Progressive but I just don’t have her in at the moment.

    Her Perf submissions were eh. I see she didn’t wanna submit the explicit title songs. (P*$$Y Fairy and H.O.E.)

    She should’ve did “None of Your Concern” or “Above & Beyond” for Performance.

    Lightning & Thunder was good.

    what do y’all think about Victoria Monét? I think she could get a nomination on R&B Song with “Moment”

    does anybody know about kehlani and kiana’s submissions? and if they have a chance?

    we’re missing so many R&B submissions. I hope someone comes through for us.

    between the 3-4 categories, I can imagine a scenario where Kehlani, Kiana, and Victoria all get nominated. But that’s me being optimistic.

    even though I disagree with the placement, R&B is way less crowded this year. Hopefully Tee can get the nomination.

    The R&B submissions are a mess this year. I knew the whole “Progressive” situation would just be chaotic. Ain’t no way SongsforYou is Traditional R&B. Neither is “Come Thru”. To think that might compete with Ledisi lmfaooo.

    updated. Still shock Summer went with Playing Games instead of Come Thru in R&B Perf. I can’t see Come Thru being nominated now for that category fraud.

    Why? “Playing Games” was Summer Walker’s biggest hit. Top 20 at Billboard Hot 100. I don’t think “Come Thru” even cracked the Top 40.

    Speaking of… even if “Come Thru” was accepted in Traditional R&B Performance (which yes is hard to believe), there is no way the picky R&B panel will select it for a nomination.

    Come Thru in Traditional is MEGA fraud. I don’t know how the screening panel let her away with that. Even Playing Games sounds more “Traditional”.

    We still don’t know. I just have her in as a placeholder because no one bother to ask Natalie or whomever for her submissions.

    Hopefully the R&B committee doesn’t nominate some of these frauds. I see you Tinashe.
