    They changed it's name to Progressive R&B

    I see. You mean 'urban contemporary', don't you? That's the kind of sound I'd link to his debut compilation 'Trilogy' as opposed to the more traditional sound of R&B, soul and hip hop. Don't think he's still doing much of that sound, is he?

    I forgot about Summer Walker. She could get it from CxH as her album is more critically and commercially successful. Having said that, her behaviour isn't great and her social anxiety has resulted in minimal promo, while CxH and their tennis court have been everywhere this year.

    I think The Weeknd might have done it as a statement? He had R&B in the bag, but maybe he wanted to prove that a non white artist can win in Pop too? I can't even remember the last one to do so.

    I cannot think of any other competition in that category.
    If we talk about quality there is no competition in that cetegory even After Hours would've been there. The girls deserve it, hands down!

    I think Summer Walker would submit to R&B, or did something else leak?

    Weird choice.. he was clearly winner for urban contemporary album.

    He's going head to head w Chromatia, Folklore, Future Nostalgia and Fine Line.

    Weird

    Well that's crap then. WAP is more recent and the bigger hit out of the two.

    They might choose Savage because it's less provocative, but I don't think that's an issue in the genre. Megan should've made Cardi hold back a couple weeks.

    Yes. Only one of these can

    Rap has a committee, so who knows the song they are choosing

    Wait does this mean WAP/Savage Remix can't be beoth nominated for Rap Performance? Since Rule A applied to that category?

    Watermelon Sugar is too juvenile, therefore way weaker if we take into account the taste of the blue-ribbon committe. Adore you has a more classic feel to it.

    It also makes zero sense that they went with Adore You for Harry Styles instead of Watermelon Sugar.
    Yeah, good thinking. Although it does put it against WAP and those two are definitely going to split votes.

    I'm also surprised with Harry's submissions. Adore You for SOTY makes sense, but Watermelon Sugar should've been submitted for ROTY. Watermelon Sugar for Pop Solo Performance is even more random without a GF submission

    Sometimes the Grammys pannel moves artists' submissions to another category. Maybe that whats's happened.

    Regarding Dua Lipa: She's got the critical and commercial success on her side, but I don't feel like she's dominating the year in a 'Jagged Little Pill' or '21' kind of way. But then again, impact is not the main criterion as 'Nevermind' didn't win AOTY back in the day and 'Back to Black' lost against an album by a jazz singer I never heard of before. The Grammys are unpredictable: They could go for Dua Lipa's album or for a random country album, which didn't even reach the Billboard 200 - who knows?

    They should've had a different poster for Chloe x Halle instead of cramping them with 2 other acts.

    I would love for Dua Lipa to sweep. She has critical acclaim and streaming numbers on her side and it would be awesome for the UK to have more Grammy winners. Harry Styles deserves some love from the committee too.
