Grammy Awards 2019 Nominations and Predictions – Part 1

I wasn’t too upset with 2018 because Bruno Mars’ 24-karat magic was a big record. There was a lot of replay value with that album. Though I did feel there were other albums in that same category for album of the year that were way more adventurous, that tapped into uncharted territory a little bit more. They are kind of tested the water a little bit more, a little bit more creative, and unique. I didn’t think the Bruno Mars was a bad pick. It’s still a really good album.

For the rap category, I thought Kendrick dominated it a little bit too much of it. For the most part, I wasn’t too upset. I mean obviously the Grammys don’t know too much about music beyond mainstream, I would say so. I’m not really surprised.

I’m going to try to rationalize how I feel about these new picks here from the 2019 Grammy nominations. Let’s look at the Record of the Year first. The nominations are:

  1. I LIKE IT by Cardi B
  2. THE JOKE by Brandi Carlile
  3. THIS IS AMERICA by Childish Gambino
  4. GOD’S PLAN by Drake
  5. SHALLOW by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper
  6. ALL THE STARS by Kendrick Lamar & SZA
  7. ROCKSTAR by Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage
  8. THE MIDDLE by Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey

Let me just write off THE MIDDLE right now. That was one of the ugliest songs I think I’ve ever heard in my life.

I thought ROCKSTAR was really big in 2017. I don’t remember how big it was in 2018.

For ALL THE STARS, I didn’t really think it was written that well as far as Kendrick’s perspective goes. I did like SZA’s vocals. I like the hook on that track a lot so I wouldn’t be too shocked. It was usable in a lot of places.

With SHALLOW, I feel like Lady Gaga tapped into some good singing, not a lot of yelling, pretty controlled singing and nice subtle guitar in the background flowing through the track. I like shallow waters as a metaphor. I didn’t really hear the song that much but I mean I guess if we’re talking just like from a musical standpoint, it’s not a bad track.

GOD’S PLAN with Drake had a big moment. I’ll say that I don’t really know if the moment that Drake was trying to create for God’s plan was intentional. I definitely think he had good intentions but I don’t think he was trying to create this big musical moment for himself considering the track was released months and months before the actual video came out. I don’t think that’s probably going to win.

I didn’t really like THE JOKE. It wasn’t really my cup of tea. I did hear Brandi’s album but I just didn’t really feel it like that. She’s a good singer. I just don’t really feel like that.

The next one we got is I LIKE IT. I heard it played a lot and I definitely think it has a groove, a vibe, a bump to it, and Cardi definitely has extreme marketability, so her winning a Grammy at this point wouldn’t be a shocker.

I think THIS IS AMERICA by Childish Gambino is a track that accompanied with the music video has a lot more impact than without it. Just looking at the song alone, I definitely love the song but I don’t feel like many people are bumping it. I don’t think it’ll probably be record of the year. Maybe, if they had a category for a music video of the year, it might earn that but as it stands.

I think out of everything here, I think that the one that has the best chance of winning probably be Cardi B. She’s my personal pick if I got to choose here. I wouldn’t be mad at ALL THE STARS but I’m assuming Cardi B will win it.
