Lil Nas X misses out on the Pop Categories but makes it in General Field, etc.November 26, 2021 at 6:05 am #1204607497
This doesn’t need its own thread, but he pulled a Post Malone, even though Post may have benefited from a panel. I personally believe Post was one of the highest vote-getters in the general field. The first round is always weird.November 26, 2021 at 6:09 am #1204607507

Also not Post Malone but The Weeknd.November 26, 2021 at 6:37 am #1204607551
He’s not pop enough for them.November 26, 2021 at 11:15 am #1204607934
i said this but pop categories are extremely pure pop leaning, they don’t like crossover. even evermore as an alt/folk album missedNovember 26, 2021 at 1:20 pm #1204608123
We talking about BPSP too. Say So.
Brandi Carlile is cross-over.November 26, 2021 at 4:19 pm #1204608345

But yes, let’s talk about “Pop” the term “Pop” has more and more become subjective not about music but more about color.
It’s sad because this year we’ve seen multiple quite frankly ALL genres push more inclusiveness… and then we have the shitfest that is the Pop categories. That couldn’t even include a black queer artist who has elevated and served the genre possibly more than most acts have in years.
It is by no means comparable to the Weeknd perhaps since it’s a more severe case of the current problem in the Pop categories.November 26, 2021 at 5:26 pm #1204608450
Brandi’s son is POP through and through. It’s not “cross-over” at all.November 26, 2021 at 6:48 pm #1204608526

Brandi Carlile is cross-over.
Doja was getting played on pop radio throughout the year and she’s generally considered as a pop artist who occasionally raps. Lil Nas X is less pop.
Plus, I don’t think it’s that serious. He was probably 6th – 7th and just narrowly missed out because voters had more passion for Doja, Justin etc. Pop was super competitive this year.November 27, 2021 at 1:56 am #1204608886
I think Doja took a lot of the “urban appeal” vote in the pop field (though there were some who could’ve sworn her only Grammy nods would be Pop Duo and ROTY). CMBYN also peaked a bit too early in the year. And for many people, the video was more of a thing than the song. While his hit during the voting period was the very hip-hop “Industry Baby”. The album also wasn’t as big as many predicted and hasn’t really sustained on the level of Doja’s. There was also just too much stiff competition in Pop Solo and Pop Album. However, it certainly doesn’t help to be a black dude trying to compete in the pop while making music that dips into a decent amount of genres and styles.November 27, 2021 at 3:03 am #1204608909
Montero CMBYN is 100% pop record and the second biggest hit of this year. The no-nomination in Pop Solo Performance is no sense because he’s not rapping there. It’s pop as well as positions or Anyone is.November 27, 2021 at 3:21 am #1204608917
CMBYN is 100% pop and is probably more overtly pop than anything that was nominated in Pop Solo. I’m not sure anyone would argue against that.Not now
