This morgan guy is spending a 6th week at #1? https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/chart-beat/9529137/morgan-wallen-dangerous-tops-billboard-200-sixth-week
He’s a couple of weeks away from matching Folklore. This is america, I guess… Say the n word and ignorant fucks will reward you with buying more copies of your album.
The Grammy’s better not nominate him anywhere. I would’ve been certain they wouldn’t, but after they nominated Dr. Luke this year, nothing will surprise me anymore.February 21, 2021 at 1:32 pm #1204053194This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 21, 2021 at 1:50 pm #1204053213

I crossed already eligible albums and the rest shows current interest to these projects, if these projects stay steady during the year, some of them could be considered for Grammys, based on popularity.February 21, 2021 at 2:05 pm #1204053229
ariana is the most likely there i think, closely followed by taylor then megan a bit behind. megan’s album is huge and well received with (already grammy nominated and possibly soon to be grammy winning) hits but the anti-rap bias is strong in AOTY as we know, they even ignored roddy last yearFebruary 21, 2021 at 2:07 pm #1204053233
i have ariana slightly ahead because she’s milking positions a bit more than evermore, however if folklore underperforms in march and taylor maintains relevance throughout the year into the voting period with the re-recordings then i’d have her ahead of ariana for sureFebruary 21, 2021 at 2:35 pm #1204053268
Ariana Grande or Taylor Swift + winning Pop Album = NOT happeningFebruary 21, 2021 at 3:24 pm #1204053332

I think a folklore underperformance wouldn’t actually bode well for evermore’s chances, especially if exile also looses to Rain On Me.
folklore is the bigger & more acclaimed album, was more recent by the time of voting, had more longevity and had the quarantine narrative too. If she can’t win with such a strong combo of factors, it’ll be even harder for evermore, which has basically been abandoned as an era, to pull it off.
Remember that unlike other award shows, past losses and “snubs” don’t really matter for Grammy winners. If they didn’t vote for folklore, which is basically a stronger project in every regard, they’re also not gonna vote for evermore.February 21, 2021 at 3:52 pm #1204053370
well, despite carrie being huge, for some reason they’ve never given her a country album nom, so the country bloc does its own thing.
Speaking of how weird country can be, remember how “Not Ready to Make Nice” literally won Song of the Year but wasn’t even nominated for Country Song?February 21, 2021 at 7:05 pm #1204053587This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.
