The Jessie stans were ruthless when it clearly should have been Dua's year.

When I tried to rig it for Jessie and it caused her to lose though :jonny: an iconic moment, I forgot who won instead.

There are a lot of albums that are hard to classify. Like, star-crossed - I'd say POP. Which reminds me I have to post the Discord link!

Babe I hate to disappoint you but if you think anyone not named Jazmine Sullivan is taking Comeback...

 

... but outside of A and JS, who else has "come back?"

WE SURE WERE WE SURE WERE

 

I mean whew 2020 was a competitive year for sure, but of all people Jessie was gonna share the stage with in true ATRL fashion, it made perfect sense for it to be Dua :heart: Esp if she wasn't gonna get the ATRL AOTY Grammy

 

Tinashe vs Erica is the 2021 battle I have strong stakes in, but this is the first year I actually listened to the Tinasha album and really loved it (I'll still shade her bc it's fun), so I'm already bracing for Erica's undeserved yet inevitable loss everywhere in R&B.

So I love you two like cooked food so listened to Erika's album.

 

You're joking, right?

 

Like it felt like fourteen tracks of JOKES. Pure Comedy.mp3

 

But let's talk about R&B! Should we scrap "Trad R&B" this year? Did anyone listen to anything traditional?

 

In Contemporary R&B we have some under the radar and some heavy hitting choices...

 

Spoiler

Jazmine Sullivan

H.E.R.

Silk Sonic

Summer Walker

Snoh Aalegra 

 

Erika de Casier (lol)

Joy Crookes

Cleo Sol

Charlotte Day Wilson

Yebba

I know I'm missing a lot/a few - who should I/we be checking out before Tuesday?

I never know the difference between the two R&Bs even when explained to me LOL and I know there's already insane competition for R&B but I'd love my very underrated fave Gavin Turek to get a little love!

 

Same with Gallant but at the very least he would have somewhat of a shot in Best Male or Best EP, or even collab with that Brandy song.

Agnes! :alexz2:

Let's talk your (and sometimes my) favorite category: COUNTRY.

 

Are we going ahead and throwing Americana and/or Roots releases in the pot too? 

 

If so, here are some that spring to mind:

 

Spoiler

Carly Pearce

Sturgill Simpson

Eric Church

Thomas Rhett

M***** W*****

Mickey Guyton

Parker McCollum

"The Marfa Tapes"

 

Yola

Alison Russell

Faye Webster

 

Who am I missing?

Would PinkPanthress be more Pop?

How do you define it? Like, could Jazmine be considered for that?

More like the... John Legend and Jon Batiste.

 

But looking at NARAS, JB, JS and H.E.R were all nominated in R&B Album, while Lucky Daye and Hiatus Kiayote are in Progressive.

 

So maybe we'll keep both!

Everyone, let's look at POP:

 

Here's who I have so far:

 

Spoiler

Adele

Aly & AJ

Justin Bieber

Doja Cat

Billie Eilish

Nick Jonas (for @Insanity)

Lil Nas X

Olivia Rodrigo 

Ed Sheeran

Those are the straight away ones that come to mind. Who's missing?

 

And what do we do with the following:

 

Lana Del Rey

Kacey Musgraves

Where should they go?
