The 2000’s are the best decade in music.May 9, 2021 at 1:43 am #1204247793
Biggest songs in 2021 based on US audio streams 357,500,000 DRIVERS LICENSE 216,800,000 GOOD DAYS 207,400,000 LEVITATING 201,400,000 SAVE YOUR TEARS 198,700,000 UP All of them possible contenders for ROTY/SOTY(min. Save Your Tears since it won’t be submitted).
How is it possible that two of them haven’t hit #1?
“Levitating” + Record of the Year nomination = BARF!
You and sanity are parallel right now.May 8, 2021 at 12:27 am #1204246644
I feel like Arlo Parks could do well in nominations even without the committee. She is clearly well liked by people in the industry: Florence Welch posts on instagram about listening to her album, Billie knows her and she was in her video for Vogue…. So so happy!
Nah, that ain’t enough. Love her, but I know my ass be dreamin to think she’s gettin any nods.May 7, 2021 at 8:53 pm #1204246539
If Levitating goes number one, it is our front runner for Pop Duo. Going off the latest trend in that category only number one smashes win!
Did it need to to be our frontrunner? I know it’s certainly mine, even though I really feel DaBaby was either a bad choice or he simply didn’t deliver enough.May 7, 2021 at 10:37 am #1204245978
I’m just gonna leave this here:
The thank u, next “snub” was worse than the Daydream “snub.”
Album of the Year, lost to Jagged Little Pill. Duh!
Record of the Year (“One Sweet Day”), lost to “Kiss from a Rose.” NO argument.
Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (“Fantasy”), lost to “No More ‘I Love You’s.” Heck yes!
Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals (“One Sweet Day”), lost to “Have I Told You Lately that I Love You?” Abso-fucking-lutely! The song was great with just Van Morrison, The Chieftains only amplified the fuck out of it. Van Morrison’s name alone is enough to take the gold.
Best Pop Album, lost to Turbulent Indigo. No argument here, baby. Joni snatched that one.
Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, lost to “I Apologize.” Heck yes!
thank u, next
Album of the Year, lost to WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Understandable.
Record of the Year (“7 rings”, lost to “bad guy.” Hands down.
Best Pop Vocal Album, lost to WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Personally, I’d rather she won this. Kind of like what happened with Taylor and Dua this year.
Best Pop Solo Performance (“7 rings”), lost to “Truth Hurts.” Hands down, bitch.
Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Boyfriend”), lost to “Old Town Road” (Remix). Gurl, this shit shouldn’t even have been nominated.
Point; Mariah tech didn’t deserve shit for Daydream. A case can at least be made for thank u, next in Pop Vocal Album.May 7, 2021 at 12:35 am #1204245566
We are in a golden age of females in music. I cannot remember the last time this many female albums were universally loved. Dirty Computer Melodrama Goldenhour When We All Fall Asleep Where do We Go? Norman Fckn Rockwell Future Nostalgia Jaimie Punisher folklore All female led incredible works of art that will be celebrated in the years to come.
Did you intentionally omit the first album in over ten years to get a perfect Pitchfork score? Where is Fetch the Bolt Cutters?May 7, 2021 at 12:33 am #1204245558
being the biggest pop album in the eligibility period by a past AOTY nominee + the whole committee dissolution, i beg to differ. At least in one category (ROTY) seems like an option
They really should’ve kept that committee. Ari deserves to be punished for the slack in quality. thank u, next >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> poopsitions.May 6, 2021 at 2:48 pm #1204245171
H.E.R. beat Billie because that song suited the narrative of the struggles of POC (clearly a theme they’re willing to give awards for whenever possible regardless of how good the music actually is) and because the academy was trying to paint a picture that they’re woke and not racist. Billie most likely ended up being the runner up and would’ve won if H.E.R.’s song wasn’t nominated. As for pop solo performance, I don’t think they should submit My Future there. It’s “Therefore I Am” that would stand a better chance in PSP, even if only as a namecheck (they obviously will give it to someone else like Olivia or Ariana Grande).
Honestly, while “I Can’t Breathe” is a beautiful song, I wish she didn’t push it in ROTY as well. She’d have that extra nod had she put “Sometimes” there instead, I bet.
Also, an aside, but “BLACK PARADE” was my favorite SOTY nominee. It would’ve worked well in so many ways:
– They’d recognize one of the largest social justice movements of this generation (and all time, frankly).
– Beyonce would’ve not only tied the record but broken it.
– It would be Jay Z’s first GF win and Bey’s second.May 6, 2021 at 2:39 pm #1204245159
I’m sorry but can’t Doja not sing songs written/produced by “tYsOn TrAx”???? Like, doesn’t she have that damn option? Now she’s hurting not just her chances but SZA’s too.
Imo, if “Streets” is eligible (which it should be), she should push the fuck out of that instead. “Kiss Me More” can settle for Pop Duo/Group. No more unnecessary nominations for Trax, please.May 6, 2021 at 1:13 am #1204244415
Yea Bruno/Paak is my current frontrunner in Song, Record, Album, R&B Song, Performance, and R&B Album. Can’t see anything else being a threat in the GF, as long as Adele doesn’t release obviously. Though I will say, seeing that the eligibility period got extended a month, it is hard to think that an Adele single wont drop this cycle. I think she’s coming and it’s gonna be a storm.
They’d be on crack not to throw it in Traditional R&B Performance.
