SZA, easily one of 2017’s bigger breakout stars, entered the 60th annual Grammy ceremony as the night’s most nominated woman. Racking up a whopping 5 nods for work found on her debut studio album, ‘Ctrl,’ the singer nabbed mention in multiple R&B categories and even one of the big 4: ‘Best New Artist.’
Much to the chagrin of her dedicated (and growing) legion of fans, the telecast hadn’t even reached its halfway mark before they realized she’d lost in every category she was nominated in.
For now, SZA will remain “Grammy-nominated” as she was bested in each of the 5 categories where she was nominated. While the singer/songwriter herself has yet to make a statement regarding the snub, we can say for sure Twitter didn’t take the news too well:
The outcry echoes that of last year’s when Rihanna – who entered the 2017 Grammys with an impressive 8 nods – went home empty-handed [click here to read more].
Sadly, as history shows, SZA is in good company when debut albums are considered. Fans may remember in 2002 India Arie saw her debut album, ‘Acoustic Soul,’ nominated seven times but earn zero golden gramophones. Similarly, Jazmine Sullivan entered the 2009 Grammys nominated in five categories (including Best New Artist), but was snubbed in each. Last, but not least, the most famous incident of this was when Mariah Carey‘s ‘Daydream’ era earned 6 nominations but went home without a single win.
