    I’m rooting for Fantasia for R&B Performance.

    Fantasia is overdue for a Traditional win. That category was made for an artist like her.

    Her label is persistent about labeling Lizzo a “rapper.” Wouldn’t submitting her to Pop go against that? She’s nominated for Album of the Year at the BET Hip Hop Awards, just like Bey/Jay-Z last year. I don’t see her going Rap, so Urban Contemporary is the most logical choice.

    …and Black Eyed Peas’ label was persistent on labeling them “rappers” too, yet they’ve won a Pop Vocal Album Grammy. Plus Lizzo labels herself “pop” in the new Grammy Contenders issue of Billboard Magazine.

    Once again, I think Lizzo SHOULD submit to Urban Contemporary Album (where she would win), but I actually think it would have a decent shot at winning in Pop Vocal Album as well… even up against Billie Eilish, since Lizzo is a more mature, established artist.

    Either way, I do expect her label to submit SOMETHING to the R&B field wherever her album ends up being placed.

    Except BEP has won multiple Hip Hop Grammys and their albums would have only been able to compete in Pop Album because their albums were NOT Contemporary R&B nor straight up Rap anyway. Not sure that is a fair comparison, nor do I think Lizzo’s label is stupid enough to push her in pop or the committee will think her album is “Pop.” That album has R&B/Soul, Hip Hop and Pop – basically what Urban Contemporary is for.

    She would not win Pop Album, if submitted there. She’d risk losing a nomination.

    She would get nominated in Pop Album.

    Below are my six—yes, I know there are five, but the Recording Academy can make an exception this year—predicted nominees for Best Traditional R&B Performance (my favorite category), ranked based on who I feel is most deserving.

    India.Arie – “Steady Love”

    Miles Davis ft. Lalah Hathaway – “So Emotional”

    Fantasia – “Enough”

    Anderson .Paak ft. Smokey Robinson – “Make It Better”

    Mariah Carey – “Portrait”

    Raphael Saadiq ft. Rob Bacon – “Something Keeps Calling”

    Who am I? You will find out soon enough. Ciao...for now!

    Praying that “imagine” gets an R&B nom. It’s a stunning performance and the lyrics are some of her best.

    Ariana Grande + R&B field = Not Happening.

    I’m on the fence with ‘Imagine’. It could go either way depending on how the voters feel about a ‘popstar’ in an R&B category
