“The president doesn’t care about black people…”
I’m so removed from the way GD is ran nowadays. But I’m here for revolutionary Boz.

Gaga gushing over Fetch the Bolt Cutters in that Billboard article: that’s the reason that album and Shameika won’t miss and she’s a real threat to take the award.
Aside from the overwhelming critical acclaim that’s the biggest reason I quickly saw FTBC as a big Grammy threat after its release. So many different types of people in the industry have gushed over it: mainstream pop acts, indie/hipster acts, old head rockers, country music acts, hip-hip and R&B performers, producers, song-writers. It’s very much an industry appeasing and artist appealing type of work despite being “strange”, “raw” and “challenging” and not being that commercially viable. Still don’t know about “Shameika” getting into SOTY or it getting more than 3 or 4 nods, especially if Fiona doesn’t do much of anything the rest of the year.
If you see The Weeknd and Swift’s albums as borderline pop then “pop” will be taking many slots in AOTY. It’s more a matter of what one or two “pop acts” will be left off and what “non pop” acts will take their spots.
I’m no fan of Future Nostalgia outside of a few songs, but it can definitely get a shit ton of nods. It may not have sold much by mainstream pop standards. But it has enough acclaim, is coming from a recent BNA winner, has a substantial hit, and Ms Dua stay campaigning/promoting. The number of nods is up in the air, but its chances are not being overrated.

Oh, it’s the time of the year for conspiracy theories. These theories so far don’t make no sense. But I’m still here for it.

Yes, Phoebe. Fiona to some extent as well. Not really with ‘Fetch’. With the exception of a few songs, that album is much more driven by drums and bass than piano. But about half of The Idler Wheel was piano driven, and it got an Alt nod. Tori Amos has a couple of Alt nods with albums heavy with piano. Forklore is just not that type of bytch. It’s still ultimately a pretty, easily digestible, lite-weight album. And Taylor is too big of artist. Folk or Americana would make more sense for that album if she tries to go for something other than pop.

Lol @ piano-driven ballads going alternative.
Piano driven songs and even ballads can be “alt” (Hello, to another female Grammy contender this year who is definitely “alt”). It’s just there’s nothing “alt” about Forklore. It’s very polished, has easily digestible hooks and melodies, isn’t strange, odd or challenging in any way. It’s just “alt” by Swift standards.
I will admit I am very pett-i-ly rooting against Harry. Swift stans are one thing. At least the album is solid and she’s a proven contender. Some Harry stans really think he’s a sure thing to get a bunch of major nods and is a big contender for multiple wins. Many have been rude. And for basic ass music at that.

I’m going to be honest, I initially thought Harry was destined to be the Ariana of this year. I now realize that’s Dua Lipa. Harry will actually be the Shawn/Camila of the year, like the other guy pointed out.
I’m guessing you’re saying Dua will get quite a few major nods but no wins. While Harry will be someone many suspect will get quite a few nods but will only get several nods and none to just one gf nod?

Gaga has been pretty poor with single choices since BTW. But there isn’t anything else off of Chromatica that sounds like a hit.

Adele’s second win wasn’t a head-scratcher. But unlike her first win, it won purely because of sales and being inoffensive.
TUN came too soon after Sweetner (which won BPVA of course) and she stopped promoting it too soon. It shouldn’t have gone home empty-handed. It is her best album. But she’s kinda to blame for it getting nothing.
Drake is just obsessed with being cool. The Grammys won’t fully validate him. So, he’s looking for that validation elsewhere. And he’s been a lazy artist for half a decade. He’s the last one that should be griping about the Grammys.

Dua getting snubbed from the gf? I can kinda see it. But it’s very unlikely. I still feel like The Weeknd in the only contender that’s a sure thing to appear in AOTY and Song and/or Record.

Also not Monsoon becoming a Swifitie just cuz every other poster has dragged him to filth for the past 10 years he’s been on GD. Girlies don’t be fooled, circa1993 dragged Ms. Swift many times.
I think that change is mostly about resenting Fiona and Dua and not wanting them to get any Grammy shine and resenting many of the people here who support them. He couldn’t give a rat’s ass about Swift.

Like, why must I keep getting thrown into some BS when I keeps it about the music, awards talk and lite shade? And when I’ve fvcked up or felt I’ve taken things a bit too far I pull back. I feel Monsoon only has something against me because I’m a Fiona fan (he probably feels Fiona is “pretentious” and so are all her fans), because I’ve engaged in some dumb but harmless shade throwing months ago and because I’m “aligned” with Poz-Boz (who can still get it), Wanda and Elias or whatever. And yes, I do feel like there are times when folks have taken sh*t too far. But I don’t care about this clique sh*t. And this is just music and awards. It’s not that serious. I feel anyone who Mon-soon has felt wronged by needs to pull back and not engage at all even if you’re just indulging a basic discussion. Just pull back or put him on block. That’s the only way to keep this place relatively chill for an extended time. Walking on eggshells with members is not fun, but u gotta do what I have to do.
This drama shit is both funny and exhausting.

I might be too old for this website. My daughter is young and she doesn’t behave like that. I see a lot of fighting and bullying going on. That’s the reason I got off Facebook.
The music forum has always been like this though. I thought after a couple of years being away from GD it would have evolved, but it’s the same culture.

Does Chloe X Halle have a real chance winning r&b song or performance? I mean, nice song and most people here like the girls but let’s keep it 100
I think so. There’s been quite a few winners in R&B in recent years that haven’t been particularly big charts wise. And R&B is just not the seller and chart topper it used to be unless it’s coming from big stars. They have the image and the acclaim and are just starting to get the spotlight. So, a chance they do have.

Mon-soon no one’s “coming for you” yet alone me. (Okay, maybe Elias stays coming for you). I actually found your posts today to be chill and somewhat reasoned. It’s called debate and disagreement. It’s not a big deal. But you seem far more obsessed with sh*tting on Fiona, her album, her Grammy chances and her fans than the fans of the album are obsessed with supporting it or rooting for it. And some of your reasoning has had logic gaps, which I’ve called out. It’s really not a big deal. And I’m pretty sure we’re around the same age if you’re not actually older (you’re probably older). So, the name-calling is just cheesy. No matter what I try to avoid the name-calling. It’s just lame.
I really don’t understand any of y’all getting pressed.
