Grammy Awards, Beyoncé, 2021, Billboard Music Award for Top Female Artist Will Beyoncé Win at the Grammys? Diary of a Song Discusses
What the hell were they thinking It feels like what 50 year olds think popular music was like.. It feels like 2020 in that its kind of unsatisfying. Record of The Year is the culture category. Where in the culture, was this music in 2020, But it should be good.. It should be the song thats good enough to represent the year, not just the song. That was zeitgeisty, enough., Singing Mother land, mother, land, mother, land, mother, land drip on me.. Do you like this song? I do like this song.. I do like this song. Its fine.. I, like Black, Parade a lot actually. Its very textured and layered, and it gets more and more interesting. The more you listen to it. Theres, the flute. Theres, the African choir. Theres, the fact that shes being very topical talking about Black Lives Matter protests.. Is it like? The banger from Beyonc I want to hear every day, Not necessarily., And we are talking about one of pop musics Olympic gods.. This is a mortal song., She does probably win. And I think it might have an inside track because they keep snubbing Beyonc. Shes, the queen of nominations and then the non queen of winning, especially in the major categories. But shes, even better, on Savage. Well get to Savage. Singing With all my favorite colors.. What is this song Every time it comes on Im like maybe this is going to be the time where I think its deeper than it actually is.
, But it really isnt. Its very simple., Its a song that exists for the Grammys.. The Grammys appreciate that kind of musicianship. Theres good guitar work on that song. Organ on that song is really strong.. The vocal is good. Singing Ill, be shaded by the trees., But what its missing for me is the punch or drama. I mean it is for people in major Starbucks attendance withdrawal is what it is.. One of the things that hit me about this category is that a lot of them are guitar songs.. Even the rap song is a guitar song. Right., But theyre guitar songs, but they are guitar songs. Its funny because the next one were going to talk about is DaBaby, which is definitely a guitar song. Singing. You even met a real rockstar.. This aint no guitar bitch its a glock. Of every song in this category. Its the best writing. – The guitar part is so pretty. I feel like you almost arent catching everything that hes saying. Singing PTSD. Im, always waking up with cold sweats like I got the flu.. My daughter, a G. She show me, kill a inaudible before the age of two. And Id kill, another inaudible too.. I doubt it can win.. Historically, the Grammys dont do well with stuff like this.. I also dont think they want to give a Grammy to two Black men.. They just dont. Outkast was the last time thats going to happen for a long time in the major categories.
Singing Id. Let you had I known it.. Why dont you say so Doja Cat, Say So produced by a man named Tyson Trax.. Have you ever heard of this guy Tyson Trax Isnt, that a pseudonym for somebody who maybe has a kind of a bad reputation? Oh wait its not Dr. Luke Yeah., Its Dr. Luke.. He used a pen name for real Yeah, Tyson Trax., Ew., Thats disgusting., The number of people in the nominating process or the voting process. Who know that this is a pseudonym for Dr. Luke, I have to imagine, is less than 1 percent.. Do you like Say So No.? Actually, I dont. Its disco without the luxury. Everything about disco and twirling around in furs, under a disco ball., And this song kind of sounds like a sad person dancing under a single light bulb to me. Its more like hey. Yeah., Its Uber music., Hey everybody., Its Music for the Uber., Its Uber music., Thats, it. Singing. I got everything I wanted.. This is typical: Grammy stuff., Hey that worked. Lets. Do it again.. Would it be too soon for Billie Eilish to win again Yes. Singing Dont show up. Dont come out.. Dont start caring about me: now. Dua, Lipa, Dont Start Now. Yes.. Is this the record of the year Yes. Disco strings baseline of the year. Singing Dont show up. Dont show up. Dont Its a kiss off to an ex whos trying to make a comeback. Its kind of the opposite of Robyns Dancing On My Own.
Singing Im in The corner watching you kiss her. Duas like dont, come watch me be in the club with somebody else, because Im going out now and Im over you. Dont Start Now is a disco banger.. It sounds like makeup. Singing Run away, but were running in circles.. The idea that this person also did White Iverson. Singing. I got me some braids and I got me some hoes.. It is fascinating to think that those are the same artist.. This is not a rap song No.. I dont even know what this song is.. You know what This was: the Post Malone song that convinced me.. I was like: OK, youre, a songwriter.. This is a really good song.. I dont dislike it because its almost like structurally impossible to dislike., But you also wouldnt vote for it. No, I wouldnt. Singing Im a savage., OK, Classy, bougie, ratchet. Ok, Sassy! Is this the record of the year? Yes, it is. A major streaming hit. A huge TikTok hit and dance trend before Beyonc ever shows. Up. Beyonc shows up because of all that. But Megan Thee Stallion shes like a C.E.O., Right. Shes, a great rapper about transaction.. It isnt only about capitalism., But it is also about orgasm and pleasure and body fluids.. Do you think that this is a bigger TikTok song than WAP Thats? A good question. WAP, obviously could have been in this category. Cardi B. reportedly did not submit it for nominations because she wants to save it for the next Grammys.
, But Beyonc is Beyonc.. So you know Yeah. Yeah. Beyonc on this song is that big steak that the Flintstones get at the end of every episode and it tips the whole car over. Beyonc is that steak. She cant help it. And if youre Megan Thee Stallion. What are you going to say Is this the song to beat in the category Yeah.? I think its between this and Dua. Flat out whats going to win this category. I think Black Parade. Im picking Black Parade. Savage or Billie Eilish., Im going to say Dua.. I think she should win and I think she will win. And who should win Im, giving it to Beyonc and Black Parade. Again. The Dua Lipa song and Savage are my favorite two., My votes Rockstar.. And what do you miss in this category? What should be here? Watermelon Sugar. Singing High., Its a classic, no brainer record of the year.. I cant believe its not here. And Blinding Lights is the other song. Right. Singing. When Im like this youre, the one I trust. Cardigan by Taylor, Swift is not there. Singing. You put me on and said I was your favorite. Thats, a cozy old fashioned subliminally catchy song.. My heart will always be with that Dua song, because I think its crisp and perfect.. But if Beyonc came to the awards and gave an acceptance speech and if she would take the Grammys to task for it, taking so long for her to be properly honored, the potential of the Black Parade win is the most interesting one.
Singing Black parade.. That presumes. I think the Grammys are valid. Sure., So lets start with that. Thats, a dubious proposition. Start there. vocalizing. I just had this idea that I wanted it to bounce. Singing. I got the horses in the back. vocalizing Singing Man whats the deal Man Im coming through.
