My 2024 Grammy Predictions


CBS presents the Grammys. CBS


The girlies are OUTSIDE prepping for the big show! Our writers, producers, media correspondence and PR professionals are on the job, as per usual. This time of year brings the entertainment industry together, celebrating the accomplishments of our favorite artists. I particularly love this year's contenders because all categories include women who respectively made their mark in 2023. Let's take a walk through some of the most anticipated categories for tomorrow night and predict some winners!

 

Record Of The Year

Taylor Swift - Anti-Hero

Olivia Rodrigo - Vampire

Jon Batiste - Worship

Victoria Monet - On My Mama

Boy Genius - Not Strong Enough

SZA - Kill Bill

Miley Cirus - Flowers


There is no debating here, the numbers don't what? LIE. Kill Bill charted on Billboard immediately after its release and stayed at number 1 for 21 weeks straight. Who is doing that? I predict a clean sweep for the night because there is simply no denying the success and impact of SOS.

 

Who Has Your Vote?

  • SZA - KILL BILL

  • VICTORIA MONET - ON MY MAMA

  • ANOTHER NOMINEE

 

Album Of The Year

Olivia Rodrigo - GUTS

Boy Genius- The Record

Taylor Swift - Midnights

SZA - SOS

Janelle Monae - The Age Of Pleasure

Lana Del Ray - Did You Know That There's A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd

Miley Cirus- Endless Summer Vacation

Jon Batiste - World Music Radio


This one is a bit tough because the Swifties do NOT play. Taylor had an extremely successful year. Miley Cirus and Janelle Monae also made waves with their projects. Personally, I love watching the evolution of Janelle's artistry- The Age Of Pleasure is a solid album. All that said, I GOTTA go with SZA again. However, I would not be surprised if this was awarded to Taylor or another artist in this category.


 

Who Has Your Vote ?

  • SZA - SOS

  • TAYLOR SWIFT - MIDNIGHTS

  • MILEY CIRUS - ENDLESS SUMMER VACATIONS

  • JANELLE MONAE - THE AGE OF PLEASURE

3 For 3. I do think that Jon Batiste or Billie Eilish have a strong chance, both receiving multiple noms for the night. We'll See! (I love "Flowers")

Best New Artist

Jelly Roll

The War And Treaty

Victoria Monet

Noah Kahan

Coco Jones

Ice Spice

Fred again

Stacy Abrams


Brace yourselves, LOL. History has taught us that the award will go to someone like Ice Spice because of her success. This might be given to any of the other nominee who didn't see as much commercial success. HOWEVER, I believe this one should go to Coco Jones. If not for anything else, hopefully for her dedication to preserve real R&B music. Don't get me wrong, Victoria deserves as well! We stan a media maven!



Who Has Your Vote?

  • COCO JONES

  • VICTORIA MONET

  • ICE SPICE

  • ANOTHER NOMINEE

 

Best Pop Solo Performance

Taylor Swift - Anti -Hero

Olivia Rodrigo - Vampire

Billie Eilish - What Was I Made For? [From The Motion Picture \"Barbie"

Doja Cat - Paint The Town Red

Miley Cirus - Flowers


Straight to the point, I just think Doja can do any wrong. Despite what one may think, she's has proven her talent time and time again.



Who Has Your Vote?

  • Doja Cat - Paint The Town Red

  • Miley Cirus - Flowers

  • Taylor Swift - Anti -Hero

  • ANOTHER NOMINEE

 

Best Pop Duo - Group Performance

SZA Featuring Phoebe Bridgers - Ghost In The Machine

Taylor Swift ft Ice Spice - Karma

Labrinth Featuring Billie Eilish - Never Felt So Alone

Lana Del Rey Featuring Jon Batiste - Candy Necklace

Miley Cyrus Featuring Brandi Carlile - Thousand Miles


Biased opinion, only because I experienced the song LIVE at SZA's NYC stop on her tour. She brought Phoebe out and it was one of those things where I didn't listen to that specific song until afterwards. It's that song you keep skipping, not realizing how beautiful it is. On the other hand, my spidey senses are telling me they may give it to Taylor Swift and Ice Spice for obvious reasons.

Best R&B Perfomance

SZA - Kill Bill

Victoria Monet - How Does It Make You Feel

Coco Jones - ICU

Robert Glasper Featuring SiR & Alex Isley - Back To Love

Chris Brown - Summer Too Hot


NOW, this is where is gets spicy for me! All nominees deserve this win! Selfishly, I would love to see Breezy walk away with this one. I wouldn't be bothered if any of the other artists snagged it up.



Who Has Your Vote?

  • SZA - Kill Bill

  • Victoria Monet - How Does It Make You Feel

  • Coco Jones - ICU

  • Robert Glasper Featuring SiR & Alex Isley - Back To Love

Best R&B Song

Darryl Andrew Farris, Riley Glasper, Robert Glasper & Alexandra Isley, songwriters (Robert Glasper Featuring SiR & Alex Isley) - Back To Love

Kenny B. Edmonds, Blair Ferguson, Khris Riddick-Tynes, Solána Rowe & Leon Thomas, songwriters (SZA) - Snooze

Dernst Emile II, Jeff Gitelman, Victoria Monét, Kyla Moscovich, Jamil Pierre & Charles Williams, songwriters (Victoria Monét) - On My Mama

Darhyl Camper Jr., Courtney Jones, Raymond Komba & Roy Keisha Rockette, songwriters (Coco Jones) - ICU

Halle Bailey, Theron Feemster & Coleridge Tillman, songwriters (Halle) - Angel


This category might be my favorite. When I listen to music, I tend to connect with lyrics first, so it is so important to me that songwriters receive their flowers as well. In this case, it's between Snooze and ICU. The ability to articulate every kind of human emotion and lived experience is truly special.



Who Has Your Vote?

  • Back To Love

  • Snooze

  • ICU

  • On My Mama

 

Best Progressive R&B Album

SZA - SOS

Janelle Monae - The Age Of Pleasure

Diddy - The Love Album: Off The Grid

6LACK - Since I Have A Lover


The Age Of Pleasure should get this one. The entire album is about liberation and living in one's authenticity. I wish we made a bigger deal of it, because let's face it, Janelle doesn't miss.



Who Has Your Vote?

  • SZA - SOS

  • Janelle Monae - The Age Of Pleasure

  • Diddy - The Love Album: Off The Grid

  • 6LACK - Since I Have A Lover

 

Best R&B Album

Summer Walker - CLEAR 2: SOFT LIFE EP

Victoria Monet - JAGUAR II

Emily King - Special Occasion

Coco Jones - What I Didn't Tell You (DELUXE)

Babyface - Girls Night Out


When it comes to an entire body of work, I HAVE to say this is between Summer Walker and Babyface. The concept of Girls Night Out was genius and great way of fusing traditional r&b while and the new age of this genre.



Who Has Your Vote?

  • Summer Walker - CLEAR 2: SOFT LIFE EP

  • Victoria Monet - JAGUAR II

  • Emily King - Special Occasion

  • Coco Jones - What I Didn't Tell You (DELUXE)

Coi Leray - Players

Killer Mike Featuring André 3000, Future And Eryn Allen Kane - Scientists & Engineers

Drake & 21 Savage - Rich Flex

Black Thought - Love Letter

Baby Keem Featuring Kendrick Lamar - The Hillbillies


Let's not pretend like Coi is not that girl! She's been putting in the work while giving us hits. It was very hard to turn on the radio without hearing Players in rotation last year. I would love to see her have her moment, but I wouldn't mind if Drake/21 or Killer Mike grabbed this one.



Who Has Your Vote?

  • Coi Leray - Players

  • Killer Mike Featuring André 3000, Future And Eryn Allen Kane

  • Drake & 21 Savage - Rich Flex

  • Black Thought - Love Letter

 

Best Melodic Rap Performance

SZA - Low

Lil Durk featuring J Cole - All My Life

Drake & 21 Savage - Spin Bout You

Doja Cat - Attention

Burna Boy Featuring 21 Savage - Sittin On Top Of The World


Remember when the conversation around Beyonce's flow, crowned her as a rapper? Well, I think Solana's pen isn't anything to play with. The bars are unlimited. All of these nominees are deserving though, especially Burna Boy and Durk!


Who Has Your Vote?

  • SZA - Low

  • Lil Durk featuring J Cole - All My Life

  • Drake & 21 Savage - Spin Bout You

  • Doja Cat - Attention

 

Best Rap Song

Andre Benjamin, Paul Beauregard, James Blake, Michael Render, Tim Moore & Dion Wilson, songwriters (Killer Mike Featuring André 3000, Future And Eryn Allen Kane) - Scientists & Engineers

Mohamad Camara, Symere Woods & Javier Mercado, songwriters (Lil Uzi Vert) - Just Wanna Rock

Isis Naija Gaston, Ephrem Louis Lopez Jr. & Onika Maraj, songwriters (Nicki Minaj & Ice Spice Featuring Aqua) - Barbie World

Rogét Chahayed, Amala Zandile Dlamini & Ari Starace, songwriters (Doja Cat) - Attention


BARS. This should go to Drake + 21 Savage. Nicki and Ice might give it a run, due to the commercial success of the Barbie Movie and this massive hit. Could Nicki win her first Grammy? -- We'll see!




Who Has Your Vote?

  • Scientists & Engineers

  • Rich Flex

  • Just Wanna Rock

  • Barbie World

 

Best Rap Album

Travis Scott - UTOPIA

Nas - King's Disease III

Metro Boomin - Heroes & Villains

Killer Mike - MICHAEL

Drake & 21 Savage - Her Loss


I'll leave this one is up to ya'll! I can't choose! All solid, but I think it's between Metro Boomin and Nas!


So, there we have it! CEO of the Recording Academy, Harvey Mason Jr has been openly dedicated to diversifying the award ceremony and shifting the board rooms. It will be interesting to see how this year's festivities play out! Aside from the award presentations, the performances and production is always great to look forward to.
