    Lil Nas X misses out on the Pop Categories but makes it in General Field, etc.

    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.

    I was just about to post a foreword.

    The Weeknd missed out on all categories, so he can’t be The Weeknd in this situation.

    That was before the committees were disbanded

    i said this but pop categories are extremely pure pop leaning, they don’t like crossover. even evermore as an alt/folk album missed

    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.

    Brandi’s son is POP through and through. It’s not “cross-over” at all.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
