    Like I said before, if they’re going to start allowing anything in Traditional R&B Performance, then it makes no sense to have two performance categories. They should just combine both or eliminate them and create Best R&B Solo Performance and Best R&B Duo/Group Performance, like Country and Pop. Those would be more productive and you can’t fraud those. The same thing applies to R&B and whatever “Progressive R&B” is supposed to be. It defeats the purpose of the two.

    Exactly. What is the point of of having 2 album categories for R&B when Progressive R&B contenders are submitting to Best R&B album.

    Brandy is performing at BBMA 👏🏾

    Besides Chloe x Halle, B has had the best promo of any R&B act in 2020. If the GRAMMYs don’t nominate her, I’m fighting voters 😒

    I don’t think Come Thru was entered in R&B song I think she only submitted Playing Games.

    Agreed they need to do an overhaul for R&B Next year.

    Let’s eliminate “Traditional R&B Performance”.

    R&B Performance – Solo
    R&B Performance – Duo/Group (including Collaborations)
    R&B Song
    Progressive R&B (hate the name lets go back to Urban Contemporary)
    R&B Album

    Gambino probably didn’t even submit 3.15.20. He only released it because he wanted out of his contract, plus he never even posted about it on any of his socials.

    This. Traditional is such an irrelevant category.

    Also IDK why Progressive R&B isn’t just named “Contemporary R&B” like it was before.

    I don’t know if they should discard Traditional. It’s a category specifically made to honor acts whose sound isn’t necessarily popular in the commercial sphere (i.e. Kem, Ledisi, PJ Morton, Anthony Hamilton).

    Most times R&B Performance is reserved for more established artists like Usher, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, etc. There have been a few exceptions. But it’s great to see otherwise overlooked Soul/Neo-Soul/R&B singers receive recognition.

    The committee needs to reinforce the submissions. There’s no way in hell “Come Thru” should be categorized as ‘traditional’. Especially against songs like “Anything For You” OR “Lead Me”.

    If the GRAMMYs were to reinstate a category it should be Urban/Alternative Performance. That award has so much potential. Particularly in a “Progressive” R&B climate.

    They can always add the Contemporary R&B Album title back into the mix.

    I agree with bringing back Urban/Alternative performance but those songs that would compete in that category would be competing in R&B Performance or Melodic Rap performance now – so it would be redundant.

    I mean look at some of the winners:

    Hey Ya! – in 2020 would be classified as Pop Duo/Group
    Crazy – in 2020 would be classified as R&B Performance
    Daydreamin – in 2020 would be classified as Melodic Rap Performance

    The only winner that made sense in that category would be “Welcome to Jamrock” since its a dancehall track. I guess that could be a category for songs like “Work” (but shes a Popstar so Pop Duo was suited).

    Unless they fill Urban/Alternative with songs from FKA twigs, Moses Sumney, serpentwithfeet, JPEGMAFIA etc then that category would be useless.
