So it’s going to be Taylor on the cover and with a reunion with one of her collaborators either Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, Bon Iver or…Joe Alwyn lol.December 1, 2020 at 7:56 am #1203886802
Taylor Swift has been named Forbes’ Artist of the Year:
“[…] For Swift, she became a surprising, but powerful voice for activism in 2020. Folklore is a superb collectio0n, my choice for the best of her career, but as I wrote in a piece on music and activism earlier this year, her place in the annals of 2020 was cemented before that. From speaking out on Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ issues to individual political races she put her considerable voice and influence to use in new and profound ways. And also showed new courage as an artist, risking alienating those who didn’t agree with her for the sake of what she felt was right. In hindsight, that courage and conviction is reflected in the artistic departure of Folklore. Maybe most excitingly for her millions of fans, that kind of growth shows the future is unlimited for what she might do next as an artist.”

AOTY nominated albums weeks at #1:
– 1989: 11 weeks at no. #1.
– Fearless: 11 weeks at no. #1.
– Folklore: 8 weeks at no. #1.
– Red: 7 weeks at no. #1.
Signed CDs will be shipping in the next two weeks so she is getting a 9 week at #1. Hopefully Folklore will tie 1989 and Fearless at some point.November 30, 2020 at 1:57 pm #1203885333
Who cares about backlash, Taylor won AOTY for 1989 and no backlash hurt her from getting sold out shows left and right on the reputation stadium tour, she won’t lose any audience or fans because of it. Some people on Twitter may fume for a few weeks but it will not change anything in her career.November 30, 2020 at 8:52 am #1203884626
I think Dua will win SOTY, ROTY and Pop Solo while Taylor will win AOTY, Pop Album and Pop Duo/Group Performance.November 30, 2020 at 5:32 am #1203884216
This photo is not part of any moment on Folklore long pond studio sessions on Disney Plus.
Maybe it’s a new music video. I thought the official music video for exile would be the live performance on Disney Plus. But it makes no sense why she posted this photo that it’s not part of the music film.November 29, 2020 at 12:35 pm #1203882575
It’s crazy because Lizzo, for example, submitted Truth Hurts in best rap/sung performance but the rap committee moved to pop and no genre confusion of the song hurt it from being nominated and winning pop solo performance.
The same thing with Old Town Road, people say it is a country song, others say it is a rap song, but the song was submitted in pop and was nominated and won.
So it is crazy to imagine that Blinding Lights was snubbed because there is no genre confusion in the song for it not to be nominated, it’s just a pop song like “Can’t Feel My Face”. I understand AH’s snub, I just don’t understand the song.November 29, 2020 at 12:28 pm #1203882558
I think it just comes down to a very unfortunate combination of all the circumstances I listed above. He definitely deserved a BPSP win for Blinding Lights.
I understand with your arguments but it still doesn’t make sense for Blinding Lights to be snubbed for me.
He has been nominated in Pop Solo Performance before for “Can’t Feel My Face” and albums considered “urban contemporary” or “r&b” by the Recording Academy in the past when they had a pop hit song, the songs were nominated in Pop Solo / Pop Duo/Group Performance.
– Happy, Truth Hurts, Can’t Feel My Face, Hold Up, Work etc.
