Surprises And Snubs: The 2019 Grammy Awards Nominations

The Recording Academy introduced nominations for the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Let me reduce to the chase. I’ve a love-hate relationship for awards exhibits in my previous age (self proclaimed Grinch of the Grammys). It typically looks like a bunch of wealthy and gifted individuals getting in a room collectively to congratulate each other for being wealthy and well-known. In the meantime, there’s a struggling artist within the again row who launched legitimately groundbreaking music, however as a result of their Instagram follower rely is 25Okay they’re not taken critically. Awards don’t equal inventive integrity.

However, awards and fame can spotlight legitimately nice music that does in reality occur to return from a wealthy and well-known individual. Take as an example Woman Gaga receiving 5 nominations this yr(!!!). Her and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Bornduet, “Shallow,” is up for 4 awards, together with the main classes, together with Track of the Yr and Report of the Yr, in addition to Greatest Pop Duo/Group Efficiency and Greatest Track Written For Visible Media. It’s value mentioning the ballad model of Gaga’s album title monitor, “Joanne,” will compete towards Ariana Grande’s “God Is A Woman,” Camila Cabello’s “Havana” and Submit Malone’s “Better Now” for Greatest Pop Solo Efficiency.

I’d additionally wish to level out that A Star Is Born might nonetheless storm the 2020 Grammys. As a result of the soundtrack wasn’t launched inside the eligibility window, there’s nonetheless an opportunity for different songs to get submitted for consideration in a yr. Anticipate “I’ll Never Love Again” to obtain numerous love.

Congratulations are to ensure that Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato. “Fall In Line” acquired a nod within the Greatest Pop Duo/Group Efficiency class. Xtina was additionally nominated Within the Greatest Rap/Sung Efficiency class for her Goldlink-assisted music, “Like I Do.”

Curiously, Taylor Swift solely receives one nomination for Reputationin the Greatest Pop Vocal Album class (up towards Camila Cabello, Kelly Clarkson, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes and Pink). Status was probably the most influential albums of the yr in pop music. Like I discussed, gross sales don’t equal good music, however she had each. One thing’s not proper right here.

I’m detached about Nicki Minaj getting snubbed, although (zero nominations). Queen is one in every of my favourite albums of hers, and as a lyricist she’s by no means been higher, however her antics drew a line within the sand. Ought to the Recording Academy have the power to separate the artist from their work? Completely. Did they? I’m not satisfied.

Ariana Grande receives a nomination within the Greatest Pop Solo Efficiency class for “God Is A Woman” and Sweetener lands within the Greatest Pop Vocal Album class.

Hip-Hop takes middle stage on the 2019 Grammys. Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with eight nominations, together with a nod for Album of the Yr for his work on Black Panther soundtrack, in addition to Track and Document of the Yr for “All the Stars” that includes SZA (justice for SZAAA).

It’s additionally value mentioning Drake went from having zero nominations in 2018 to nabbing seven in 2019.

A few different surprises? The Backstreet Boys acquired a nomination within the Greatest Pop Duo/Group Efficiency class (yay), however the RA didn’t present a lot love for Mac Miller – he acquired one nomination for “Swimming” within the Greatest Rap Track class.

The Grammys happen on February 10 in Los Angeles.
