    Hopefully Jhene submitted the Deluxe edition. Chilombo is actually one of the great R&B projects released this year.

    Honey, the only nomination Victoria Monét might receive is in Best R&B Song for co-writing “Do It” by Chloe x Halle.

    More than likely Progressive R&B. Her sound fits that category more than traditional.

    Are you predicting it to win or nah? And what is my “bias” for/against Brandy?

    It is my hope that Ledisi wins because she truly deserves. But she seems to be a curse when it comes to the Grammys. That said, Brandy could, should, and would win.

    Who am I? You'll find out soon. Ciao, for now!

    Does the double nominations rule apply to R&B Performance? I’m wondering because I could have seen H.E.R. nominated as a solo artist and as a feature artist, since she has so many submissions. “Slow Down” definitely deserves recognition, but I would like her to be nominated for a solo performance as well.

    Anyone else thinks that Traditional R&B Performance is becoming redundant? I noticed that a lot of the submissions in recent years have been very contemporary and could have been placed in R&B Performance.

    Yeah. She can only have 1 nomination in Performance .

    Page 22-23

    Rule A (1 Nomination Only) – applies to R&B Performance

    Same. I think Jhene will get at least a Progressive R&B nomination. Her album was the biggest (in sales) this time around. It’s been a while since she’s been recognized . Pretty sure R&B panel will throw her a bone somewhere

    I feel like she’s definitely above Kehlani.

    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.
