    Fantasia’s music has been nominated 14 times and she only has 1 win…and it took her 11 nominations to get that. Tamar you have A LOT more work to do before you win a Grammy. No disrespect but after a 14 year hiatus you should have come much harder. Love & War the song was cool but the album was generic and something you would expect from a new R&B artist. Prove that you have longevity and maybe just then you’ll earn a Grammy.

    I’m just still confused how she lost to rihanna

  6. mekaela February 25, 2014

    Why the f*** u confuse rih album was f****** good don’t come for rih obviously people in the industry respect rih just because this muppet sings about broken heart s*** all day long she deserve a Grammy you haters need to realize that rih is here to stay

    I am sorry, this was by far Rihanna’s worst album to date, and it was NOT R&b., Rihanna is as pop as they get, so how she beat Tamar (even if it was her -st cd)., I have no clue…. Its like the Kendrick/Macklemore thing.., just not the right categories for these people, Mack is HIP POP, not hip Hop, Grammys are stupid, sorry Tamar should have won, hands down, and I dont even care for her like that, but the cd is great!

    I personally think that she deserved the Grammy for Best R&B Song because it was well written and had a good message. I wanted Fantasia to get that Grammy for Urban Contemporary Album though. If not her, THEN Tamar.

    @Navy Nick, I have to agree and I’m glad to see someone from the Navy finally get the picture about that category, Rihanna’s album produce more Pop Cuts than R&B cuts and I’m still shock on how and why is her album nonimated for that category???? Personally I think Tamar should appericate being nominated and recongize by the Music committee for her project… for someone who is more like a new artist to get three nomination on their second/first album is a blessing most new artist don’t get nominated til next year…

    Looooll! UNA won for BEST URBAN CONTEMPORARY album, which it was. Tamar’s album was okay at best. She took no risks and it was dated for the most part. Most of the songs sounded like Toni rejects from 2000. Tamar always bashes R&B music anyway so she didn’t need any awards in a genre that she doesn’t even respect.

    THE 56th Grammy Awards is a joke the winners in Tamar’s category.

  12. anonymous February 25, 2014

    I think Tamar should have at least won one award, especially for that song, but I’m happy that she was at least acknowledged by the grammy’s. there are some people who have been in the industry for 30 years who never even got a nomination. So Im still happy that she got this far. As for Rihanna winning, I don’t have an issue with Rih I do like some of her music, but I don’t think her album was R&B and yes Urban contemporary is still R&B, I looked up that category and I think it means alternative R&B with other styles infused into it, but I feel her album was pop. Im also Glad Lalah Hathaway finaly got to win her grammy.

  13. Keith February 25, 2014

    Honestly there is no way Rhianna should win any R&B award…her music is pop at best. I agree with the posters who believe that Tamar has more work to do before she gets noticed. I like Rhianna but she is nobody’s R&B artist….

  14. DRINO February 25, 2014

    I know that pissed me off cause Rihanna’s album wasn’t even and R&B album

  15. The Boy Toy February 25, 2014

    Stfu UNA was an urban album! Phresh Off The Runway, Numb, Pour It Up, Loveeeeeee Song, Nobodies Business, Get It Over With, Jump etc are all urban influenced songs. She wasn’t nominated in any R&B categories! Tamar stans beef should be with Lalah Hathaway and Alicia Keys, not Rih! 😉

  16. Truth must be told February 25, 2014

    Tamar’s album is genuinely good. I was very impressed after I listened to it recently, and feel like she deserved a Grammy.

    You can say anything about Tamar, but one thing that nobody can take away from her is her talent as a singer… I didn’t take Toni Braxton seriously when she said that among the sisters, Tamar is the most talented one. Now I understand what Toni said…

    Tamar having a big personality isn’t news, but the identity in her singing (and therefore huge personality), good Lord, is amazing! She sounds like Tamar! And yes, I can hear lot’s of Toni and Mariah in her style, but still… she brings something new to music in the way she chooses to use those vocal chords.

    God bless her!

    (considering the other people who won those categories, – JT and Rihanna – she definetly deserved the awards!)

    So how many copies has Love and War sold in the US? I thought it was at least certified gold.

    “…the star’s time at the 56th annual Grammy awards was documented for the 1 million or so viewers who tune into the show every week this month”

    They’re talking about BFV. Does the Grammys come on every week? Oh ok lol

  19. anonymous February 26, 2014

    @THE DON Love & War’s album sales are close to 350k in the US.
