    With all that said, will you stop automatically disqualifying Hip Hop music from general field contention to prop up these middle of the road records?

    Now that rappers have won in New Artist, Record, and Song it looks like the Grammys are changing little by little so in future years I’ll be more open to predicting rap in general field, but not in Album of the Year until it actually happens. I’m still not sold on This is America being totally rap since it didn’t even get a rap song nomination. I think it was one of those “in-between” songs that Grammy voters could get behind.

    Ugh the way that Dirty Computer was robbed of a nom in the R&B and Urban field… she def would’ve won something if that was the case.

    I’m still trying to understand how a tie can happen these days in the rap field… it’s a field a lot of voters vote on.

    Usually, those smaller categories tend to be the ones with the most ties.

    I’m glad Kacey won. She cant sing from what I gathered from her performance but it’s good that someone that is not dominating mainstream radio won.

    Alicia Keys did an amazing job, and her two-piano performance… incredible.

    I legit thought she would win AOTY after most of her competitors won major categories. Poor girl walking away with nothing tonight.

    Don’t you guys think that Hip Hop is hurt in the general field because it takes way too many people to produce their songs or album. I mean just look at how many people were nominated for “All the Stars”. It’s an insane amount of people for just one song. Kacey wrote and produced her entire album, same with past winners like Beck and Taylor. They don’t have nearly as much producers, featured artists and engineers and mixers like most urban albums.

    Yeah Janelle going home with nothing was my only big disappointment from this year’s winners, but sadly was to be expected after whatever weirdness happened to get her shut out of nominations

    Yeah, Bruno literally won with a song by EIGHT songwriters.

    A Bruno Mars song with 8 writers won SOTY just last year, and even in that ceremony the song with the fewest writers was 4:44.

    They just like what they like.

    I know this argument has been outdated already but no matter how many writers, producers, composers,…etc you have on your album, if you make a good album, you make a good album!!

    Lmao since when was Janelle Monét the frontrunner? Didn’t homegirl fail to get a nomination in her genre? Y’all sound like the Lorde stabs last year. Janelle was never going to win. Get over it.

    Interesting bit of trivia: this is the second year in a row that Best R&B Album has gone to an artist of Asian descent.
