    Honey, this category is hotly contested. Free 6lack is the only one who has no chance. The Weeknd won’t repeat. Khalid and SZA have top 5 albums. However, Childish Gambino’s AOTY nomination sealed the deal for his win here. In addition, Donald Glover’s two Emmy wins are too big to ignore.

    SHOULD WIN: SZA, Ctrl
    WILL WIN: Childish Gambino, Awaken, My Love!

    Starboy didn’t get any other nominations, not even a Pop Duo/Group nod for IFIC. 6Lack is not known enough to win this category. Khalid’s album didn’t make a big enough impact critically.

    It’s between SZA and Gambino. Gambino has the edge with the AOTY nomination.

    WILL WIN: “Awaken, My Love!”
    SHOULD WIN: “Awaken, My Love!”

    The Weeknd is the only one with a decent album in this category. Gambino will win. As long as he prevents the overrated hack SZA from winning.

    It’s only between Sza and Childish Gambino. Childish has the edge, but I have a feeling SZA will win.

    Ctrl should definitely edge out every single nominee here, including the AOTY nominee. I hope the voters skip over Childish Gambino here and give it to SZA, but I see Childish Gambino easily winning here.

    Childish Gambino has the second best-selling album in this category after The Weeknd, and he’s up for Album and Record of the Year. He should easily win this, but I’d keep an eye out on SZA.

    No one’s won this category twice and this is The Weeknd’s only nomination, so Starboy is out. Khalid wasn’t as successful as Gambino/Weeknd or acclaimed as SZA, and he’s missing a pivotal R&B Performance nomination. 6lack is lucky to be nominated.

    Ctrl is one of my favorite albums of the year and I would love if it wins but with nominations for AOTY and ROTY Childish Gambino will win

    Should Win: Ctrl
    Will Win: Awaken, My Love!

    If SZA is as competitive for BNA as some of are thinking then an upset here wouldn’t shock me. Especially since Gambino should easily take Traditional R&B Performance anyway.

    Otherwise they’ll just go for the AOTY nominee as per usual

    Not sure those who are saying Ctrl should win actually listened to Awaken, My Love! It’s superior in every aspect.

    The difference is GIRL was also nominated for AOTY, while Ctrl isn’t. But he could lose ala Views 😉

    I always forget that he was also nominated for his album that year in addition to his AOTY nods as a Producer on Beyoncé’s and Ed Sheeran’s albums

    I HONESTLY don’t get the love they showed for Gambino. CTRL is the best album amongst the bunch and I hope she wins.

    These submissions were actually funny though(what’s the use of the screening committee). Awaken my love belongs to R&B album.  I also think 24K Magic would be better suited in urban contemporary.

    Anyways the AOTY nom gives Gambino the edge for now.  SZA has had more chart success and longevity though. And she has the better reviewed album. I’m all for SZA.
