Honey, Taylor Swift rushed this crap because she knew Adele would NOT be releasing this cycle. If she is truly THAT bitch, release an album and compete during the same time as Adele.
No it was because Billboard was changing it’s rules about bundles soon. Taylor needed to milk that one last time.August 1, 2020 at 10:05 am #1203620626
When you’re talking about breaking through in the general field a black artist needs a fair amount “white support”. Summer doesn’t fit the “Grammy brand”. While she’s not big enough to belie the idea black performer the Grammys tend to go for. We know culture, demo appeal, politics, recency all play a role when it comes to the Grammys. Not just numbers. I would like to be surprised this time.
I agree and that’s why I’m not predicting her. I just don’t think Chloe and Halle are any different, especially since their album bombed. No one knows who either artists are outside of R&B fans. Neither of them have an acclaim like Janelle Monae did, neither of them have big crossover this like Ella Mai did.
Everything For Love was literally one of the most predicted AOTY nominees whichever year it came out. While some learned their lesson after that, there were still a lot of Homecoming predictions. It’s easy to forget those projects today, but when they came out it was the typical stan response that we see time and time again.August 1, 2020 at 9:43 am #1203620599
Chloe and Halle fit the Grammy brand more than Summer. Their album is getting a lot of support from R&B fans, pop fans and some “hipsters”. Summer’s album has been out for almost a year. And when Beyoncé has a chance at gf nods she gets them. So, I fell to see your point Karen.
Those are anecdotes. Summer Walker is getting support from the same fans. Want proof? There is none lol. But the numbers say who is bigger.
Beyonce can get her solo stuff in, but all these side projects that her stans say she’s getting in “because it’s Beyonce” don’t get in. Chloe and Hallie fall into the side project category for her.August 1, 2020 at 9:32 am #1203620592
An 81 and an 8 have little-to-no difference when one of them has 6 reviews and the other 8.
That’s kind of my point. Their “acclaims” are similar so it’s not an advantage they have over Summer Walker. The latter does have the far bigger success advantage though.August 1, 2020 at 7:10 am #1203620322
Chloe x Halle have a better shot than Summer Walker. Yes their album was smaller, but it got acclaim, they are past nominees, their sounf and image are way more closer to someone like H.E.R than Summer Walker’s more sexual content, and they have that Beyoncé/Parkwood promo. They’ve also been performing everywhere: the GLAAD Awards, YouTube’s Class of 2020 Events, The Today Show, the BET Awards, MTV’s little quarantine concerts, the Global Citizen concert, and doing interviews left and right. To the people asking how to campaign during a global pandemic, let these girls show you.
Summer Walker got more acclaim (86 vs 81) and her album didn’t flop. Beyonce can’t even get her own stuff in the GF anymore. Columbia will probably be pushing for Harry Styles and Dixie Chicks who have a far bigger shot.July 29, 2020 at 1:13 pm #1203613100
Y’all just gonna talk about Taylor Swift until the Grammys or what?July 22, 2020 at 7:23 am #1203595746
They definetely got their thunder stolen by Juice Wrld’s gargantuan 500k debut. He sucked all the air out of the room this week. I think Gaslighter will still do well at the Grammy’s. The Chicks are beloved enough that they don’t need massive success to get noms.
it was #3 though so even without juice wrld it wouldn’t top the chart.July 22, 2020 at 5:25 am #1203595559
Dixie Chicks kind of flopped. Less than 100k opening.July 21, 2020 at 8:16 am #1203594277
It’s just iTunes…July 6, 2020 at 6:59 pm #1203571290
How isn’t Ungodly Hour in the AOTY prediction centre yet? I understand not putting Sawayama in since she’s a new artist with no prior Grammys, but Ungodly Hour is by a BNA nominee, was highly acclaimed, and has the sort of sound the Grammys tend to like.
Let’s not get carried away with acclaim. It’s only an 81 on MC. That’s basically average these days.June 28, 2020 at 5:28 pm #1203556142
Even if The Weeknd gets snubbed, Post Malone isn’t winning in the GF.
