This is my favourite album since ‘Born to Die’. It’s already beginning to rank amongst my favourite albums.

I don't manage to get into it.

It's a choose your favourite tracks-kind of album for me.

I know you all love it. I take Drew Barrymore and leave the rest for you.

It's an amazing R&B album indeed. One of the best ones, and this is just her debut album!

I'm mad she didn't collect a single Grammy. She was clearly one of the front-runners. It seems as though the Academy is operating at its usual pace - only awarding the names that it knows best, rather than the ones that actually connected with the culture.

I didn't think she would win any given the nominees. And she's not a Grammy type of artist, anyway. Too blunt.

Well, I love that she is not "Grammy material", she is not the type who would politic her way into pleasing audiences and seeking award validation, which shows her credibility and artistry more than anything. I love her authenticity and her independence from commercialism.

This album deserves, man. I haven’t connected to a R&B work of art like this in a long time. But I don’t think the academy is big on black singers unless they’re Bey, Alicia or Rih smdh. They did the same thing to Jasmine Sullivan with her debut album.

It’s whatever though. I’m glad I didn’t get my hopes all the way up for her winning.

If there was still a Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, she would have won. :cry: :cry:

BRING IT BITCH!!!!!!

I need a full version of Wavy, and this song called Dem Dem Dem

Here's a video of snippets of a whole bunch of unreleased stuff that was meant for CTRL (which means some of these songs might be the deluxe edition)
