Kinda funny award since Taylor often gets dragged by stans for being “local”. I guess she showed them.April 30, 2021 at 3:25 pm #1204236976
What will be nominated for global music? Is this a way to get kpop acts some wins since they create buzz?April 30, 2021 at 3:21 pm #1204236957
Stans celebrating on Twitter lol I mean, Bieber is probably the front runner in the general field now…
If his pop support has never been strong enough to get him a pop Grammy win, he’s clearly not a force. He could sneak in but will probably place 5th to 8th.April 30, 2021 at 3:08 pm #1204236892
I do agree the distinction between roty and soty could suffer from this. The panel did at least try to bring some variety into it lately.April 30, 2021 at 2:59 pm #1204236862
The general field will probably be dominated by popularity now a lot more. Like I wasnt really predicting Ariana or Taylor this year, but now it does get a lot more likely.April 30, 2021 at 2:54 pm #1204236836
Could get messy but it’ll be interesting to see for sure. No more blocks.April 30, 2021 at 1:57 pm #1204236705
If Savage was nominated with the original version with the animated video, then The Weeknd & Ariana can be nominated for their animated video for Save Your Tears and it’s a official video.
I didn’t say a nomination can’t happen, but 9 seems extremely unlikely. Savage was Megans only eligible hit so they made do with what they had. And it still wasn’t nominated for any technical categories. Both Ariana and The Weeknd have real videos they can use.April 30, 2021 at 1:28 pm #1204236646
It does feel like at times the commitee really favors a specific winner. In the other thread I already mentioned keeping Janelle Monae out for The Carters and keeping Roddy Ricch out for Nas. But also AOTY this year. Besides the weird The Weeknd and Roddy Ricch album snubs, if they had let Fiona, Harry or any country act in, it probably wouldn’t have ended in a Folklore victory either. It did really feel a bit set-up for her.April 30, 2021 at 1:19 pm #1204236633
I don’t see a full-on cartoon snatching 9 noms. Is it even eligible for things like editing and visual effects? The original Save Your Tears version makes a lot more sense for the technical categories imo.April 30, 2021 at 1:07 pm #1204236611
It’s not only about The Weeknd, the panels can definetely feel a little corrupt at times. Keeping Janelle Monae out to hand the win easily to The Carters in 2019. Having Roddy Ricch not nominated for rap album also made 0 sense this year. Also felt like it was just to give Nas an easier legacy win.April 28, 2021 at 5:43 am #1204233158
If Billie and Olivia do a better “white woman, singer-songwriter, alt. girlie” than Lana “Queen Mother” Del Rey, I genuinely see that as an issue.
Billie yes but Olivia still feels very Disney Channel version of alt girl. I don’t see adults gravitating towards her like they did with Billie.April 28, 2021 at 5:13 am #1204233118
It’s rare for albums to be up for pre-order 3 months nowadays. Interscope is definetely aiming for massive first week numbers.April 24, 2021 at 2:14 pm #1204219753
Established or non established it doesn’t matter. Taylor has expressed that she worked on a lot of the songs on folklore/evermore during the quarantine with Joe. This is probably her way of thanking him. Taylor has always been generous with production and lyrical credit. She made Toddrick co-executive producer on the YNTCD video and Max Martin has expressed how much she gives credit to others for work that is done by mostly her.
Yeah she might credit easily but all those people got the credit right away. If she found Joe worthy of the credit from the start, people wouldn’t have really noticed it.
