Thinking Out Loud was a safe choice but Alright and Blank Space were more deserving winners than that song in 2016. Poor Kendrick, never got his deserving GF award for now.January 9, 2020 at 9:58 am #1203272221
Roddy Ricch really a contender for breakout artist of 2020. #1 album and now #1 song.January 8, 2020 at 10:39 am #1203270811

A Tribe Called Quest’s final album being completely snubbed is still a big deal to me, even if they were never Grammy darlings. I would’ve nominated it for Album and Record (We the People) as well as the genre categories
I %100 agree with this. Even Q-Tip famously buried them on live Instagram. He was right about all of that, they should’ve nominated instead of Jay-Z although i loved 4:44.December 30, 2019 at 2:37 pm #1203254391
The first two were not shocking, even in the wake of Aaliyah’s death. “Fallin” and Songs in A Minor were unbeatable that year. What an incredible year for R&B music. I would have given R&B Female to Aaliyah in 2002 with Jill Scott in second place. I didn’t like that Mary won for such a forgettable track like that. Ashanti would have been cool as a spoiler, but I would have definitely voted for Aaliyah that year. “More Than A Woman” was an awesome song.
Aaliyah’s Try Again song was nominated for Best R&B Female Performance and lost to Toni Braxton’s He Wasn’t Man Enough. That was the biggest snub of her shortcut career. May god rest in peace to babygirl.December 30, 2019 at 2:32 pm #1203254387
Kendrick going emptyhanded on 2014. He had 7 noms that night and 0 wins. It was one of the most infamous one. Kendrick’s GF snubs are also infamous since he made some of the best albums of this decade.
Similarly, his labelmate SZA going emptyhanded on 2018. She had 5 noms and 0 wins.
Frank Ocean and Beyonce also has AOTY snubs in 2013 and 2017.December 27, 2019 at 12:04 am #1203251337
Also, this can goes for Nas and Snoop Dogg, hip-hop legends that many times nominated but never won. Even Kendrick mentioned them in his 2016 speech.December 27, 2019 at 12:01 am #1203251335
2001 – R&B PERFORMANCE – FEMALE Toni Braxton “He Wasn’t Man Enough” – WINNER Aaliyah – “Try Again” Erykah Badu – “Bag Lady” Kelly Price – “As We Lay” Jill Scott – “Gettin’ in the Way” I think Erykah Badu and Jill Scott cancelled each other out.
Poor Aaliyah, she also deserved this.December 16, 2019 at 3:21 pm #1203240615
SOTY has no clear frontrunner. Everybody has a fair chance except Gaga, Capaldi and Lana for me. H.E.R can pull an upset, Miss Tanya can pull an upset, Taylor can win, Billie and Lizzo is most posters pick.December 16, 2019 at 2:35 pm #1203240427
Congrats to the legendary Mariah Carey for those achievements.December 11, 2019 at 11:06 am #1203231911
She is probably going #1 unless Juice WRLD can block her.December 10, 2019 at 1:49 pm #1203229592
Rolling Stone and Billboard making the same shit; confusing most popular/best selling albums with best albums.December 9, 2019 at 6:55 am #1203226587
Lizzo kinda hurt her GF chances with this stupid move.
