I haven’t seen this movie yet but it could be this year’s NTD except that it’ll do better.

A Black artist winning AOTY once in 13-14 years is not showing that the Grammys are progressive.
Not it in itself, but also the fact that the prior year, 2 of the main GF awards were won by black artists, and the year before it, a rap song won ROTY & SOTY for the first time in history. So there is a trend happening. It’s undeniable.May 15, 2022 at 5:45 pm #1204953099
I think it’s time to reconsider our way of thinking. If someone writes an epic song with hundreds of lines supporting trans community and breaking the anti-lgbt rap stigma, and the only take away for someone people is the few lines where he used the f word to authentically recall some childhood memories, I think it begs the question, maybe our way of thinking is the problem? The choice to be offended by six alphabets rather than the meaning they hold in the context where they are said? If context doesn’t matter anymore, then I say gay people shouldn’t be allowed to use the word either, because yes there are gay people who are internally homophobic, even legislators, activelly passing anti-gay laws while being gay themselves. If that’s the logic we’re using…May 15, 2022 at 9:19 am #1204952683
The comparison with TS doesn’t make sense. TS makes pop music. Kendrick does social commentary. The use of the F word is meant to induce a shock of authenticity. Context matters.May 15, 2022 at 1:53 am #1204952430
It sounds way too disconnected sonically and lyrically from the movie.May 14, 2022 at 2:54 am #1204951621
I think he will win AOTY. So far he doesn’t seem to have competition from the rap and R&B field. They’ll coalesce around him. I just don’t think Adele is that undeniable when her album became old news pretty quickly. And this year’s POC sweep shows the Grammy’s are changing.
To say that this album is his Lemonade is an understatement.May 13, 2022 at 3:32 pm #1204951308
There’s a better written song two tracks later tho
I meant also the social commentary in Auntie Diaries in relation to contemporary cultural views. Not just from a lyricist perspective but also the fact that it delivers a powerful social message. Mother I Sober is also great.May 13, 2022 at 1:06 pm #1204951250
Give “Auntie Diairies” Song of the Year
I’ve never heard a song better written than this.May 9, 2022 at 9:55 am #1204947241
This is coming to sweep all the technical categories if not BP too.May 3, 2022 at 1:18 pm #1204941027
HMH is great (for its purpose). I don’t know how people were expecting anything other than a retro 80s Adele-sque ballad for this movie?May 3, 2022 at 10:48 am #1204940913
The song is great. I think it’s her most vocally-demanding song ever?
I wasn’t expecting much from this side project, especially after the many misses from popstars recently when it comes to soundtracks, but I’m pleasantly surprised with this.April 17, 2022 at 8:13 pm #1204921050
There is so much negative press against Viola right now. I wonder if it’ll hurt her chances later this year. But I have to say, I’ve always loved her in so many movies. This has to be the first time that I think her acting is completely off and almost disrespectful to Michelle. I hope The Woman King will be good though.Not now
