What happened to talking unnecessary when you have talking to Taylor Swift and Beyoncé?
Also, get out this week shit that Dua Lipa is generic asf. Future Nostalgia, while doesn’t go full disco, still is a huge pop album that doesn’t sound like anything, even with the synthpop found today.
Huge where?July 8, 2020 at 1:32 am #1203573331
It’d be sad but not surprising to find the Grammys focus on majorly music popping in the US. I feel sorry for voters at times. I feel they have more than a lot to listen to, even though that’s kinda their job. I just hope the nominees can be as pleasantly surprising as possible and not 7 kinda surprising. Not that I’m complaining, but some genres have been completely shut out from the GF. Can the Grammys be more like Cannes? lol
Anyway, I got a bucket load of predictions for World Music Album but I need some of your thoughts to help me narrow them down.
The Grammys are American, so obviously they are going to nominate what is shaping America.July 6, 2020 at 4:36 pm #1203571096
Feych the bolt cutters deserves AOTY
after hours doesn’t deserve. There are so much skips on this album. Future nostalgia is infinity times better than abel’s album.
So i am hoping either fiona or dua takes it.
Why are Dua Lipa stans loud everywhere except Billboard?July 5, 2020 at 1:13 pm #1203569221
Notice how I said “at some point.” Rockstar has peaked on rhythmic radio and will peak on urban in the next week. I don’t see the pop callouts being that great, so it will start to weaken soon. Watermelon Sugar will go top 3 and potentially challenge for the #1
Rockstar is receiving 40,000,000 streams a week while Watermelon Sugar is receiving less than 20,000,000. The only thing that has the potential to be number one in place of Rockstar is a song that debuts at the top. Otherwise, Rockstar is going to be the number one for the rest of the summer. Watermelon Sugar is not reaching anywhere near 400 points ever.July 2, 2020 at 1:49 pm #1203563728
I am moving Ego Death into my ROTY prediction. It has all of the ingredients to be a summer smash.
- A huge collaboration between 4 stars
- A big hook that is memorable and immediately recognizable
- A fire beat that demands to be turned up
- Perfect middle ground between sounding so fresh but still being a radio friendly pop song
- Cross genre appeal. Gonna be a smash for fans of pop, hiphop, electronic, alternative, etc.
- There really is a void for song of the summer this year that a song as weak as Rockstar is topping the charts. The charts are wide open just waiting for a smash like Ego Death
Rockstar is a really strong number one in points if that to what you are referring.June 30, 2020 at 10:22 pm #1203560250
Man fuck commercial success with the Grammys, especially with awarding majority of AOTY winners last decade are pop. I just want the best record of the year to be on-top. Not just the ones that sold millions of copies and had millions of streams.
Fiona winning would help change the game at least with being the lowest sold and streamed winner there. And Abel could open the door for more deserving Black musicians to follow suit.
Just because you and a few bloggers say something is the best that does not suggest that everyone else has to have agreement with that. There are artists who have great reviews and have great popularity. It is patronizing to say that the best happens to be whatever hipsters say is the best. Plenty of that shit is exhausting to hear.June 30, 2020 at 3:37 pm #1203559480
I love the way no one is predicting Drake for anything even though he’s coming soon with another chart invasion
I also love the way they keep snubbing him despite them cute little charts records
How are they snubbing him when both of his most recent albums received Album of the Year nominations?June 29, 2020 at 4:47 pm #1203558003
A young white girl with the most critically acclaimed pop album of the year? Oh yes. She’s definitely ahead of him in Album of the Year. And I don’t expect otherwise.
They nominated zero pop albums for Album of the Year in 2018 even though the two expected to receive nominations are way bigger than Dua Lipa’s. They do not just throw nominations at pop albums by pop stars. They only nominate them when they are big and a defining album of that year. I am not sure why you guys believe that they have a slot reserved for female pop albums.June 29, 2020 at 4:23 pm #1203557963
In the wake of Black Lives Matter and COVID-19 pandemic they’re gonna give one of the biggest culture vultures in recent memory Album of the Year. They better protest by not nominating him. There’re at least 8 better albums that was released in June 2020 that are more suitable winners than Hollywood’s Bleeding.
Like are they serious?
He was NEVER winning, whether the protests or coronavirus happened or not. It is as silly as the people who are now saying that Ansel Elgort is out of the race for Best Actor when he was never in it, emergence of rape accusations or not. Stop listening to that clown who had you guys believing that Billie Eilish was about to win a vocal performance Grammy for whispering on a trap beat. It really is foolishness.June 29, 2020 at 12:50 pm #1203557510
Rockstar is about to spend ten weeks at number one unless Drake puts out his newest single, so it possible that it gets into Record of the Year also
