The 61st annual Grammy’s are set to premiere February 10, 2019, and some people are already upset including me! Grammy nominations were released over the weekend and if you have been on social media, you would understand the frustration.
First, lets talk about Album of the year, why was Post Malone’s BEERBONGS & BENTLEYS nominated for album of the year…I mean I personally didn’t listen but I know for a fact that it did not win over Queen Bey’s and Jay-Z’s EVERYTHING IS LOVE joint album or J. Cole’s KOD album.
Also, it looks like the Grammy’s have picked a side in the Cardi B vs Nicki Minaj fight as Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy album was nominated over Nicki Minaj’s Queen album.
Not only am I upset that Beyoncé and Jay Z did not get recognized for album of the year, but I am also upset that Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD was not nominated at all. We all know that whole album was on constant repeat during the end of summer, stop lying!
But SICKO MODE was nominated for Best Rap album, so I guess that is a plus.
However, I am extremely happy that H.E.R. did get some recognition for album of the year. Her music speaks to every female, 2 can definitely play that game, haha see what I did there? It a song from her album named 2, just go listen if you don’t know, now you know!
In other news, Best New Artist, H.E.R. was nominated again along with Drake’s obsession, Jorja Smith, and Beyoncé’s girl duo Chloe x Halle! The Best New Artist category is dominated with females like Bebe Rexha and Dua Lipa, but honestly, I didn’t know they were new this year…no shade.
Which female are you rooting for?
Don’t you guys love when the Grammy’s try to sneak in old songs and make it relevant? Why is Camila Cabello’s Havana (LIVE) being nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance? That song came out in August 2017. Did I mention eligibility period for Grammy was between October 2017 and September 30th this year? ALL SHADE!
The Grammys are obviously trying to make up their loss of nominating EVERYTHING IS LOVE as “Album of the Year” because the Carters’ SUMMER is nominated for Best R&B Performance and EVERYTHING IS LOVE is nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album, I am sorry but there is nothing contemporary about what Beyoncé does.
I know you country lovers are shocked that Carrie Underwood was not nominated for anything, and I don’t listen to country but I definitely am surprised that Taylor Swift was nominated for only one Grammy for her Reputation album.
In conclusion of my anger, I do not agree with this year’s nominations, it has me wondering if the Grammy’s are listening to the people because it sure does not seem like it! But I am going to tune in to see who snatches that album of the year, are you?
