    I think they’ll get a solo performance stage and I’m manifesting the win for them. Positive ARMY thought processes here. Did ya’ll see that Alicia Keyes posted on twt tonite a beautiful cover of her doing Life Goes On. Would be a dream collab, think I’ll manifest that too! I’m STILL on cloud 9. SO happy for our Tannies. Stream BE!

    Alicia is so wonderful!! And yeah, I’m hoping for solo stage too with both Dynamite and LGO. Their performance at James Corden was top-notch by the way, can’t believe they really did THAT.

    I agree, it was a wonderful performance. Alicia is planning on some remixes I think.

    what are your thoughts on dynamite winning?

    i don’t want to jinx anything, but i feel it has a genuine chance. I still think it will be ROM or exile, but dynamite’s chance is bigger than the other two.

    Dynamite is the most recent one & has had the biggest campaign going. the only downside is a possible burn out by the voters.

    you mean a possible lgo remix ft alicia? i would love for that to happen! i think she would fit really well with the song & the boys.

    As much as I hate to say it, their chances of winning are very slim and I hope Armys don’t get their hopes up. Winning is a different beast than getting a nomination. This is between Exile and ROM and Taylor will probably take this. If she’s actually campaigning then it’s a done deal.

    tbh you’re being realistic, which is the best in this case. although i will keep (a bit of) hope till january, the competition is (most likely) between exile and ROM. I could believe the grammys considering bts’ nomination as ‘their win’ already. Curious if Taylor is gonna start serious campaigning.

    I think the award is Taylor’s to lose tbh. ROM has the second best chances and then maybe i guess we could say Dynamite comes in third? But the distance between them is pretty big. In any case i don’t think it’s impossible, but i’m not counting on it.

    – an korean album
    – no collabs
    – no remixes/instrumentals

    She already has. folklore the long pond studio sessions, Apple Music Awards (dec 14-18), and more teased events.

    They deserve it. I can’t say I’ve ever loved a BTS album but this one is one I do love. All of the tracks are good. Fly To My Room is a personal favorite.

    BE’s TEA is 350k according to BB. That means either LGO/Dynamite sold better than estimates or there was little filtering on the b-sides. This was a worry b/c of solo stans/vpns.

    If it’s the latter, it’s highly likely all the tracks will chart.

    Some BE statistics:

    242,000 units total
    177,000 album sales
    35,000 track equivalent units (TEA)
    30,000 streaming equivalent units (SEA – 48.56m on-demand streams)

    The average streams per song on BE is about 6m with skit, 6.9m without skit.

    MOTS7 average per song is about 3.74m with persona songs included, 5m without persona (74.8m total).

    Never count out bangtan, I feel it, they are going to win, I’m calling it. Everything is breaking right for them and the stars are aligning. They’ve been playing 4D chess all this time. Even the corruption, rigging and duplicitous nature of the RA are working in bangtan’s favor.

    Releasing BE on 11/20 was the centerpiece of their Grammy campaign. The timing was masterfully done, they are now the fastest act since the beatles to get five #1 albums, LGO will be history making, the first korean song to go #1, and dynamite is going to shoot back up to #3. The news will be everywhere, voters will all know. BTS also “coincidentally” scheduled a grammy museum masterclass interview on tuesday, bangtan will make sure everyone knows about their groundbreaking achievements. If we can get dynamite to peak at #1 again next week it will be pure *chef, french kiss*, next week’s result’s will be released on 12/7 and voting begins later that week on 12/12. They will be undeniable, bangtan have made their checkmate move.

    While, I do agree “exile” is the favorite, I don’t see it winning. Are they really going to give “pop” duo/group to an indie/folk song? Especially with all the history making momentum BTS has? I don’t see it, pop duo/group is just a “minor” genre award and the WORLD IS WATCHING. This year they have to pretend they are inclusive with the whole weeknd fiasco, and Deborah Dugan still hanging over their heads, not to mention the snubbing of critical darling Rina Sawayama. BTS are the only asians nominated and they backed themselves into a corner, congrats RA you played yourself.

    This has been two years in the making. RA wanted to pretend they were “inclusive” by inviting bangtan as a presenter (to an urban category, no less) when they were just a “curiosity” and expected them to fade away. Good guy, little Nas X invited them last year making them a fixture at the grammy’s. Making them much harder to snub this year.

    Oh my, it’s just too good. If they win the pop duo/group BE has a good chance of getting a pop vocal album nom, dare I say, even a AotY nom…

    Of course, I could be wrong and taylor sweeps everything. Nah, Bangtan is a group of destiny, not even the sus RA can stand in their way. It’s amazing how things just keep lining up for them, I just can’t bet against them.

    To quote, namjoon: Were going to win so naturally, they won’t even see us coming”.

    I also think that this one is going to go to Taylor tbh. Exile got nominated in spite of the lack of promotion and her whole album has received lots of praise this year, so she is a favorite. I’m sticking to Dynamite as my second option just because of a gut feeling (and the fact that Gaga has been quiet about the whole thing). Then again, some of these people voted for Yummy so I don’t even know what to expect anymore.

    Regardless of the outcome, I hope they enjoy themselves and get more nominations in the future

    FIRST ACT IN US HISTORY to have a #1- #6 all kill on the Digital Song Sales chart. I think this is a reaaaally good sign for an album bomb on the hot100.

    In theory with these sales all the songs should chart (except skit which isn’t eligible most likely).

    US armys you guys are nuts. 129k sales with just one version and not even with the physicals which will add 20-30k sales. That’s 150-160k sales. There is no way LGO doesn’t go nr 1 with these numbers right?
