I don’t see it happening. Urban Contemporary albums tend to be R&B/ Hip-Hop albums with pop influences. Soul Searching is Pop with R&B and Hip-Hop influences – he’s no different to someone like Ariana Grande.
Agreed. At least half the songs on that album are clearly pop songs.
I can definitely understand why this debate is happening, but yeah… Bazzi is not R&B.August 11, 2019 at 9:44 am #1203019424
Bazzi wouldn’t be nominated, regardless.August 11, 2019 at 9:51 am #1203019440
Yeah Oscar, we know you like him, but this is kind of a repeat of last year when we tried telling you “Mine” wasn’t getting in SOTY and he wasn’t getting in BNA.August 11, 2019 at 10:09 am #1203019468
Oh, I don’t think he’s getting in regardless. I just think he should be submitted in Urban Contemporary.August 12, 2019 at 6:38 am #1203020307
Khalid should be snubbed across the board. He gave up the sound that made him unique and now became a Jason Derulo basically.
Are you coming for future Best Supporting Actor winner Jason Derulo?

Are there any upcoming R&B releases that could potentially nab a nom this year?August 12, 2019 at 11:12 am #1203020751
PJ Morton’s Paul was just released a few days ago Lionel Richie has a live album coming out soon but that could be placed in Pop Album.
I was JUST listening to PAUL today, such a good album! He could definitely nab a nomination, his recent history with the Grammys seems good! Not too sure about the Lionel Richie album thoughAugust 12, 2019 at 11:14 am #1203020753
Normani(?) She could be placed in Pop but I don’t think she’ll get nominated either way.
Normai’s best chance of a nomination is with Waves in my opinion, it’ll set her up well for further recognition when she drops her album in time for the 2021 ceremonyAugust 12, 2019 at 12:13 pm #1203020877
PJ Morton’s “PAUL” is amazing. I love it from beginning to end. I can see it winning R&B Album. And I wouldn’t be mad at all. Even if he’s up against Mariah.August 12, 2019 at 1:41 pm #1203021013

IKR!!! It’s got this really nice throwback vibe running through it but the production feels current and of-the-moment. He should submit it for Best R&B Album and ‘Built For Love’ (w Jasmine Sullivan) for Best Trad. R&B Performance. Caution is still THAT B*TCH though and will always hold a special place in my heart, the songs have aged like fine wine…August 12, 2019 at 3:56 pm #1203021128
Depending on the placements, I see R&B Album looking close to this:
PJ Morton, PAUL
Solange, When I Get Home
Ari Lennox, Shea Butter Baby
Jamila Woods, Legacy! Legacy!
Daniel Caesar, Case Study 01
