    Happy for Solange. Better than no nomination.

  3. kiki January 14, 2017

    Rihanna is becoming boring now. We need a new young pop star.

    • Fancy BISH January 14, 2017

      What a lovely comment…Abel must be giving you fifty shades chile lol

  6. HailLegendBeysus January 14, 2017

    What a time it must be to be Solange. She’s finally no longer Bey’s sister. She’s Solange an artist that delivered one of the best R&B album’s of this decade! Hopefully her name and brand can continue to flourish with each project she puts out. It’s great seeing her gain recognition and seeing her name at these award shows. It’s just even better knowing she’s getting all this recognition from an album that stayed true to her artistry and didn’t need to give radio friendly pop songs for it. So proud of her.

        This isnt confirmed at all!. Its been added by a random person. You dumba$$$. Dont you think if this were real it wouldve made headlines by now. LMAOOOOO ???

    • Levi January 14, 2017

      She hasn’t announced anything.


      I live in Sydney, AUS and there has veen bo announcement here. Until its confirmed by Beyonce herself or her team via. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Ticketmaster etc. its not going to happen!

  8. Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 14, 2017

    Whose album sold the most among those INT’L FEMALE ARTIST NOMINEES….JUST ASKING FOR A FRIEND.

  9. Shakira stan January 14, 2017

    Solange best female for a sit of flopping album and singles.
    Anyway the show is a joke anyway… I know about a hundred Indy stars doing way better and selling way better than the uglier Knowles without having a huge superstar as a sister, a rap legend as a bil and a record deal.
    She is trash and makes crap music.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 14, 2017

      I bet u think GOATKIRA is the s*** right??

      • HailLegendBeysus January 14, 2017

        I stopped even replying to Shakira stans when they said Sale El Sol outsold Self Titled LOLOL! They’re delusional as hell.

      • Shakira stan January 14, 2017

        Laundry service sold 20 Million worldwide, a sale Beyonce won’t see in this life or next.
        Take a seat at Solange’s flopping table.

    • Fancy BISH January 15, 2017

      Dirty Laundry HAS NOT sold 20 million worldwide lol…I called Shakira’s team out a long time ago for the LIES…her wikipedia stats are so wrong it ain’t even funny! Now, they’ve changed her wikipedia stats to “she has sold between 70 and 125 million records worldwide (depending on the source)”….DEATH! How can the actual number be off by 55 million records? How Sway? That’s like saying a brand new artist has sold between 0 and 55 million records, depending on the source…SCREAMING!

  10. Shakira stan January 14, 2017

    Not surprised that people here are her fans, just like Meryl said violence incites violence failures acknowledge failures.

    • Wonder Woman January 14, 2017

      Don’t hurt yourself

  11. Bryhmin January 14, 2017

    I’m here for Sean Paul and Rihanna!

  12. JaDora January 14, 2017

    Omg Sean Paul is doing big things this year! Solo go get yours…yesss! I’m loving the diversity

  13. Myownstan January 14, 2017

    Don’t get me wrong I’m British but we need to learn from the Americans and the grammys cos the Brit awards are pointless I never watch. Apart from the great acts they always seem to find people nobody has heard of and people that don’t sell albums! It’s not like we are short of talent

  14. Bertie January 14, 2017


  15. Tikklzzz January 14, 2017

    yass Sean Paul!!!!!!!!!! Rih is slaying as per usual <3

  16. King B January 14, 2017

    wow! Congrats! I thought they’re going to nominate Ariana instead.

  17. MirrorToMirror_ January 14, 2017

    Emeli Sande
    Sean Paul
    Wowww I’m loving this

  18. Boosie January 15, 2017

    A few things….

    Has Robbie Williams had international success?

    Although I am a lover of Solange and especially this album, did it make any U.K impact?

  19. madbrax January 15, 2017

    Christine and the Queens is far more talented and original than any of those girls. she was huge in the UK.

  20. Fatusankoh January 15, 2017

    Happy for the Bey and Salong I hope one on them win good luck to them
