Hey Bliss With Liss Fam! I decided to come show some love on here and share a little music info with y’all (which is what my blog street-poetry is about by the way)! So, as some of you may know (and if you don’t, you need to), the 2018 Grammy nominations came out yesterday morning, and this is the most excited I’ve been for the Grammys in a while!
*SIDE NOTE: I almost have this desire for more black artists to finally get their due recognition, but at the same time, I feel like we shouldn’t care or need to be validated by the masses.
BUT ANYWAY! Back to these nominees! It appears as though Hip-Hop and R&B artists are taking over this shindig, with the top nominees being Jay-Z (8 nominations), Kendrick Lamar (7 nominations), Bruno Mars (6 nominations), and my girl, SZA (5 nominations). Sis is also the most Grammy-nominated woman this year, and I sincerely hope she skips away with new pieces for her mantlepiece, leaving sprinkles of black girl magic behind.
What I think I’m excited about is the fact that not only are the nominees for the R&B and Rap categories lit, but these artists are dominating the GENERAL FIELD categories like Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, etc. as well. I’m eager to see how his plays out. One thing I did notice is that A Tribe Called Quest’s LAST album We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service was not amongst the chosen ones…that doesn’t seem right to me, and if definitely doesn’t feel right to Q-Tip. The artist took to Instagram and went OFF, calling out the Grammy’s:
Take a look at the nominees for yourselves here and let us know what y’all think. Did the Grammy’s get it right or are they overlooking some people? Also, be sure to click over to my blog and see what Liss has to say about the nominees!
Sending love and good vibes your way!
