    Does anyone know if “Lovely Day” by Jose James & Lalah Hathaway qualifies for the Grammy this year?

    What about anything else by either of the two artists?

    Lovely Day/Lean On Me were released before the eligibility period. I looked around and didn’t find anything that would qualify for either of them

    1/ Ella Mai – Ella Mai*

    2/ Kehlani – While We Wait 

    3/ Ari Lennox – Shea Butter Baby*

    4/ Mariah Carey – Caution*

    5/ BJ the Chicago Kid – 1123

     

    Urban Contemporary Album 

    1/ Lizzo – Cuz I Love You*

    2/ Anderson.Paak – Ventura*

    3/ Solange – When I Get Home*

    Lucky Daye deserves some recognition. Painted is one of the best albums of the year.

    Lucky Daye is getting lots of buzz. He’s this year’s Daniel Caesar.

    Speaking of Daniel Caesar, I don’t think he will be cancelled. I think he could still land a nomination or two this year. Artists say and do stupid shit all the time, and they still get Grammy recognition.

    Daniel Caesar’s album was a non-event commercially, and wasn’t received well critically (even by his own standards). A nomination wouldn’t be impossible, but it’s unlikely.

    I feel like Daniel’s best chance at a nomination is his song with Brandy.

    How ya’ll feel about Monica’s chances with “Commitment” Its a Decent vocal. She should have won for “Everything To Me” and Still Standing” back in the day.

    Lucky Daye has been popping up all over the place lately. I hope it’s not too little too late for him because his effort produced a very strong R&B album. He had lots of standouts but not sure about the marketing push. Sad to say, but I think he could have benefitted immensely with having a high profile collab (like Drake) or remix to one of his songs. He needed more exposure.

    Sadly he may join a LONG LONG list of artists that should have been nominated in the R&B field.

    R&B name checking and rubber stamping is out of control these last 10 years

    If Anderson Paak is going to submit a song into whatever category it’ll be Make It Better Not Tints. I would underestimate Jojis Slow Dancing In The Dark…

    R&B Album

    • Mariah Carey (Caution)
    • Ella Mai (self-titled): before Billie Eilish happened, Ella was my #1 contender for Best New Artist, but I still feel like she’ll be nominated. But last year she beat Childish Gambino & H.E.R., so who knows.

    I frankly don’t have other strong contenders in mind

    Urban Contemporary

    • Anderson .Paak (Ventura)
    • Beyoncé (The Gift)
    • Lizzo (Cuz I Love You): should be in Pop but we been knew that the Grammys are racist. I feel like she might be snubbed from specific fields like Janelle last year.
    • Khalid (Free Spirit)
    • Solange (When I Get Home): family reunion.

    imagine Mariah Carey & Beyoncé winning Grammys together in 2020.

    R&B Song

    • Anderson .Paak (TBD)
    • Mariah Carey (With You)
    • Ella Mai (Shot Clock): Trip is not eligible this year.
    • Khalid (Talk)
    • Solange (TBD): her album did not spawn any singles, so I don’t know what songs she will submit.

    R&B Performance

    • Anderson .Paak (TBD)
    • Beyoncé (Before I Let Go)
    • Mariah Carey (With You)
    • Khalid (Talk)
    • Lizzo (Juice): imo it does not fit this genre, but she will not be nominated in the Pop field.

    Ella Mai is not eligible for Best New Artist; she is already a Grammy winner.

    And “Trip” is eligible.

    Slow Dancing in the Dark is not eligible.
