    Steve Lacy is in my R&B Album prediction. Apollo XXI was brilliant.

    New HDD article about possible Rap/R&B noms: http://m.hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=317680&title=HIP-HOP-AND-R&B-GRAMMY-FAVORITES

    I’ve been thinking about adding Steve Lacy but idk where to place him. The R&B categories are super crowded this year.

    The article also suggests Normani could be up for BNA which makes no sense to me. However I do think her buzz/momentum could lead to a nomination for Waves in R&B performance, aside from anything Dancing With A Stranger is getting.

    HitsDailyDouble always makes stupid predictions/suggestions for the Grammys and don’t always seem aware of the rules… or else they wouldn’t have suggested that Normani could be eligible for Best New Artist when her bandmate from Fifth Harmony (Camilia Cabello) wasn’t last year.

    I’m not sure why they brought up certain artists like Rosalia (who I love) who will probably not even submit any of her LATIN songs in the R&B category, lol. They also seem to think Post Malone’s “Sunflower” will get an R&B nomination. Okay.

    It would have been nice had they gone a little deeper into both genre categories (separately) and their potential contenders. Oh well.

    Yeah, I take their articles with a grain of salt. I’ll never forget Paul insisting that Harry Styles would get nominated in all of the general categories lmao.

    H.E.R. is also back in the running with the compilation I Used to Know Her, released right at the end of eligibility.

    Definitely an R&B Album contender. Not sure about another AOTY nomination considering she’s still teasing her proper debut album.

    Probably not for AOTY. H.E.R. had more time to make an impression to warrant a surprise AOTY nomination. R&B is the safer bet. If they like her enough, they could give her a SOTY nomination for “Hard Place” instead.

    H.E.R. also released a cover of Foy Vance’s “Make It Rain” from Austin City Limits today, and it’s killer. It may be eligible for Traditional R&B Performance, American Roots Performance, or even Rock Performance.

    The Deadline for Submissions is now officially CLOSED. What are everyone’s current predictions for the R&B Category (Album, Song, Performance)?

    I will be mad if H.E.R. scores an album nomination for combining her EPs last minute before the Grammy cut-off.

    Outside of the popular contenders (Khalid, Lizzo, Solange, etc), I really hope that Mariah Carey’s Caution is remembered by the R&B judging panel. It’s still one of the best of the year to me and stands out amongst a lot of the similarly sounding contemporary urban artists’ works. I do fear it will be forgotten though.

    She did the same thing with her last album that just won this year. And she still would have been eligible with the second EP, so I don’t see what the problem is.

    Are we consider “Before I Let Go” in R&B performance? Can be frontrunner. It is still getting played on radio.

    BILG could easily win Traditional if submitted.

    R&B Performance may go to Anderson. Paak & Smokey Robinson. That’s Grammy bait ASF.

    H.E.R definitely deserves a song nomination for Hard Place. There’s going to be a lot of competition in the Urban Contemporary category this year (Khalid, Lizzo, Solange, Anderson Paak and (potentially) Goldlink) and it’s all dependant on how each artist submits (if Khalid and Lizzo submit their stuff into Pop, if the committee are more receptive to Solange than they have been in the past). I personally want Goldlink to win this album but I wouldn’t mind if Lizzo or Anderson Paak snatched it instead. I really hope Mariah gets an R&B Album nomination for Caution. If she can garner a nomination in that category she’s one of the frontrunners to win. The difficult bit is actually getting the nomination in the first place.
