GRAMMY CHEW: PLAYING FAVORITES

 

Who are the “locks” for the top Grammy categories? You say you don’t like “locks?” Fine, let’s say “favorites.” Whatever you call them, half the biz is asking us who we think the definites are for the Big Four; the other half, we imagine, has already made its lists. So here’s our assessment of the field as of mid-September, divided into the three or so we consider favorites (the ones whose absence from the category would be shocking) and those we'd call probables for the rest of the field.

We agree that Black Lives Matter and the ongoing conversation about gender will figure prominently in the nominations. The list is not exhaustive and we look forward to eating at least some of our words later. Also: Grammy will do what Grammy wants to do. And with that, we go to the list.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Favorites

We agree that chart juggernauts The Weeknd, Harry Styles and Lil Baby make the short list. We differ on Taylor Swift; Simon believes the critically adored folklore will have a strongly vocal constituency, whereas Lenny believes the record lacks the heft to make the upper tier.

 

Probables

Juice WRLD rates as “highly probable” with his genre-crossing posthumous set; the same can be said for another album from an artist taken at a tragically young age: the star-studded set by the late Pop Smoke. Dua Lipa, Jhené Aiko and the Chicks all made potent, well-received albums and will likely be considered. Lady Gaga is the quintessential “Grammy artist,” and her Chromatica will have plenty of votes. The extremely challenging set by Fiona Apple got major critical love and could well land a nom.

 

RECORD OF THE YEAR

Favorites

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” and Post Malone’s “Circles” make the cut on the basis of commercial and cultural clout alone. Lil Baby’s “The Bigger Picture” belongs among the faves for crystallizing the political moment in a highly accessible way.

 

Probables

Harry Styles’ “Adore You” and DaBaby’s “Rockstar” are practically favorites; Harry might slip here as he’s honored elsewhere. Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” is highly decorated. Doja Cat’s “Say So” was a pop phenomenon. Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” was a monster. Juice WRLD’s Marshmello collab “Come & Go” may be the selection from his album with the broadest appeal. “Roxanne” by Arizona Zervas was the streaming smash that began the TikTok gold rush—look for this one to have a large cheering section.

 

SONG OF THE YEAR

Favorites

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” Harry Styles’ “Adore You” and Lil Baby’s “The Bigger Picture” loom above the landscape.

Probables

 

Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now,” Maren Morris’ “The Bones,” Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” and JP Saxe’s “If the World Was Ending” have plenty of heat in this songwriter category. Taylor Swift will be strongly considered, but for which song? “cardigan” and “betty” seem the strongest contenders.

BEST NEW ARTIST

Favorites

Summer Walker remains at the front of the pack as she leads a revolution in R&B. Love for the late Pop Smoke in the community pushes him into the front ranks for an unprecedented posthumous BNA nod. Doja Cat’s big hit and vivid, zesty persona signal a true arrival.

 

Probables

This year was all about new artists and the noteworthy arrivals are many: genre-busting indie troubadour Phoebe Bridgers; country truth-teller Mickey Guyton; Nashville breakout Morgan Wallen, pop/hip-hop disruptor Megan Thee Stallion; and soulful singer/songwriter JP Saxe, among others.

They think Lil Baby has more chances to be nominated for AOTY than Folklore just because he has the biggest album of the year?  :deadbanana2:  Lil Baby ain't Kendrick Lamar and he didn't have an OTR like Nas Maraj

Goldderby is one of the most inaccurate forums for this.


They never get their information right but their rage comments against opps are hilarious

I could see a nomination for The Bigger Picture for SOTY because of Black Lives Matter but I don't see him getting in AOTY. Roddy Ricch has more chances to be nominated for AOTY IMO.

The weeknd and blinding lights

Post and circles

Harry and adore you/watermelon sugar

Ariana and gaga's song

Taylor

Dua don't start now will take care of the popular votes.

 

I think Meg the stallion is a bigger threat IF she comes out with a song this fall/winter during voting period addressing the incident even if her album won't be ready until 2021.

 

Juice world WILL WIN best rap album for obvious reasons.

Lil baby and/or da baby will clear out the rap categories as this hasn't been a very big year for rap and they are the breakouts.

 

Drake will be snubbed.

 

I think cardi can get rap performance NOD not win for WAP.

Kane brown will have his moment

Chloe and Halle will be nominated.

Doja will be nominated but i'm not sure she will win.

 

The year belongs to Post, Harry, Weekend and Juice

But wasn't that their prediction for the nominees?

How many of those 5 made AOTY - I'm not sure if I remember some of those albums being there.

I'm fine with Gaga not winning or being nominated this year tbh. While i LOVE Chromatica and still listen to it constantly, she doesn't deserve any recognition for an era she threw in the dumpster months ago. :heart:

 

I'd be more pressed if Alanis doesn't get at least a nom.

 

Chloe x Halle deserve a grammy for EVERYTHING they will inevitably be nominated in.

I would love to see Megan & Beyoncé get nominated for ROTY with Savage Remix

Gaga being nominated made no sense. It’s not massively acclaimed nor is it one of the best selling albums of the year. It also doesn’t have a massive smash attached to it either.

Their predictions basically consist on a list of 20 songs/albums per category hoping that two or three will get the nomination. HDD is such a joke.
