When asked about his brushes with racism, Drake talked about the recent Grammy awards (which he did not attend). “Even though ‘Hotline Bling’ is not a rap song... the only category they can manage to fit me in is a rap category,” he said. “Maybe because I’ve rapped in the past or because I’m black, I can’t figure out why... I won two awards last night—but I don’t even want them, because it just feels weird for some reason.”

Beck, St. Vincent, Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Lorde, The xx.

All major contenders for alternative/rock categories.

Lana Del Rey's new album will probably be labeled as 'pop'.

Sky Ferreira's Masochism is rumored to be released this year. I hope she gets some recognition even if she's too indie. Night Time, My Time was a great pop record.

I wonder if Abel will submit Starboy into Urban or Pop.

Interesting, what used to be the major award in music industry which many artists desired is now slowly turning into an Award that many don't even care or want to win these days. Grammys are not really that important and many are finally realizing of that including the artists themselves.

Many other fandoms stopped giving importance to Grammys long time ago because they already knew the deal, now Beyonce fans seem to be finally opening their eyes regarding these awards, they're not a big deal, massive legends like Queen never even won.

Most people know the Grammys are a joke. They're just stan tokens these days, the stans probably care more about winning than the artists.

Drake listen. Your label is the one who decides which song to submit and where to submit, not the GRAMMYs committee.

The grammy can still edit your submissions though?

Wasn't Drake the one drinking from a Grammy award some years ago when he won Best Rap Album? :roll: :roll: Let's face it, he became more of a guilty pleasure kind of artist with his antics, the likes of Kendrick and Chance the Rapper are the "serious" ones perceived by the critics. Drake's obvious advantage and edge is that he is really huge mainstream-wise and is the most relevant rapper right now in terms of branding.

This year is looking like a tight race between Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars, and if Kendrick releases an album, he will most likely be the perennial runner-up and the urban fans will again see it as another so-called "robbed" moment and shade thrown at black artists and call the awards show irrelevant (despite the fact that they are the ones who keep anticipating the announcements of submissions and final nominees every year).

I think the big Three will be between Ed (Song), Bruno (Record) and Kendrick (Album).

I think Kendrick will finally get it, the album is indeed a masterpiece, plus factor in the U2 feature and the meltdowns from the urban community (Kanye, Drake, etc). :lol: :lol:

THE GRAMMYS ALTER A FEW RULES
The Recording Academy has established new amendments to the Grammy Awards including a transition to online voting, the addition of songwriters to the Album of the Year category and a new layer of nominations review in categories such as rap. On top of that, a 31-minute tuba solo can now be classified as an album.

In addition, they’re announcing nominations earlier than usual, giving Ken Ehrlich an extra week or so to get the show booked.

For the first time, voting members will cast their Grammy votes online, which the Academy says will provide greater flexibility for touring artists, eliminate the possibility of invalid ballots and protect further against fraudulent voting.

Songwriters have been added to the Album of the Year category, which will now honor all music creators (songwriters, producers, engineers, mixers, mastering engineers, featured artists) credited with at least 33% percent or more playing time on the winning album.

Nominations Review Committees will be created for the Rap, Contemporary Instrumental and New Age fields. The nominations review process was established in 1989 as an additional round of checks and balances to eliminate the potential for a popularity bias that puts emerging artists, independent music, and late-year releases at a disadvantage.

Two changes are made in the Visual Media field. The film version of a track may be entered in the Best Song Written For Visual Media category even if a different version of the track is submitted in other categories. In the Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media category, albums for a documentary or biopic must contain at least 51% newly recorded music.

An album, previously defined as having a minimum playing time of 15 minutes with at least five distinct tracks, is expanded to also include any work with a playing time of 30 minutes with no minimum track requirement. The definition expansion allows for greater inclusion of music creators who produce longer pieces, particularly in classical, dance and jazz.

"As an Academy, it's imperative that we continue to meet the needs of music creators everywhere, and this year's transition to online voting is an enormous step forward in the evolution of our voting process," said Bill Freimuth, Senior Vice President of Awards for the Recording Academy. "We work diligently to ensure we’re keeping up with our ever-changing industry and team up with music people year round, across all genres and disciplines, to make sure we are doing everything we can to support the creative community."

The Academy also laid out the calendar for the 60th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held 1/28 at Madison Square Garden. The online entry period closes 8/24, the first-round ballot period is 10/16–29 with nominations announced 11/28 and final-round ballot period running 12/7–21. Media companies must register by 8/16 to submit recordings.
