Rihanna may see her LP ‘ANTI’ struggle to compete with Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’ at next year’s Grammy Awards.
Full story below…
In a piece named ‘Who Has the Most to Gain (And Lose) at 2017 Grammys?, Billboard breaks down their predictions for next year’s ceremony on February 12th.
WHO: The VMAs-honored singer, who released a No. 1 Billboard 200 album (Anti) and No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single (“Work”) in 2016.
ISSUE: She has won eight Grammys, but never in a major category.
UPSHOT: Hard to see her lapping Beyoncé. What does a good girl gone bad need to do for proper recognition of a record-smashing career?
WHO: The rapper who released The Life of Pablo in February (and tweaked and revised it for weeks).
ISSUE: He has won 21 Grammys, but — as he’s quick to remind us — none in the album, record or song of the year categories.
UPSHOT: Drake dominated airplay, and Chance the Rapper got the critical love. West could be left hanging.
