The full list of selections for the 62nd Grammy Awards were declared Wednesday morning, 67 days in front of the Jan. 26 awards show.
Philly rapper, artist, and jail change dissident Meek Mill is among the exceptionally not insignificant list of nominees. Mill’s 2018 album, “Championships,” is up for Best Rap Album, the main assignment of his vocation, against some strong challenge.
Here’s the full class:
• Dreamville, Revenge of the Dreamers III
• Meek Mill, Championships
• 21 Savage, I Am > I Was
• Tyler, the Creator, IGOR
• YBN Cordae, The Lost Boy
They loved “Championships” a considerable amount, venturing to such an extreme as to state it’s his best collection, front to back, however this is a since quite a while ago shot. The way that it was Meek’s first collection in the wake of being released from jail may pull a few voters toward him. They can’t envision “Championships” prevailing over a collection like “IGOR”, which is by a wide margin Tyler, the Creator’s best independent exertion. They likewise may give a slight edge to YBN Cordae’s record.
Apologies, Meek. Speculation they’ll simply need to give them some more music, similar to they guaranteed them would.
Somewhere else, the honors are moderately light on Philly associations. Perusing, Pennsylvania’s Taylor Swift is assigned for a trio of grants, including Song of the Year for “Lover”, and Philly local Bradley Cooper got a couple of selections for his exhibition in “A Star Is Born”, including the Best Song Written for Visual Media award.
Actually, They was thinking about whether they may see another selection for Tierra Whack, maybe Best New Artist, after she was named for Best Music Video in 2019. Her “Whack History Month” series of singles prior, and her highlights with Flying Lotus and Beyoncé, kept her in the discussion throughout the entire year. Maybe the honors need to trust that Whack will discharge a full-length collection, instead of 2018’s 15-minute “Whack World”, or maybe she basically isn’t on their radar, which would tell.
