Jhené Aiko Fans Erupt After R&B Diva Snubbed at 2021 GRAMMYs

Published: Sunday 14th Mar 2021 by Rashad

Jhené Aiko had the comeback year many artists only dream about.

Counted out by many after the commercial failure of her sophomore album, 2017’s ‘Trip,’ the R&B diva bounced back better than ever with 2020’s ‘Chilombo’ – the year’s best-selling R&B project.

Spawning 4 Platinum singles in the process, the LP – thanks to a little help from its deluxe edition – also boasts becoming the beauty’s first Platinum-certified album in the United States, a measure that denotes sales equivalence of 1 million in the country.

With all those brag-worthy stats to its credit, fans and industry analysts alike were sure the LP would land at least one of the three GRAMMYs it was nominated for at the 2021 ceremony – especially after she hosted one of the event’s pre-shows.

Unfortunately, such was not the case.

Jhené entered this year’s GRAMMYs with three nods: Best Progressive R&B Album, Best R&B Performance, and Album of the Year.  After the first trophy went to Thundercat, Beyonce nabbed the second and Taylor Swift the third.

Alongside her previous three GRAMMY nods nabbed in 2015, the new set of losses leave Aiko as “6x GRAMMY-nominated” – a title her legion of fans don’t exactly appreciate.

        Were you left in a gas chamber? Find Jesus

      😆 @ gas chamber.

      PS I agree on her being boring. I think she tried too hard to be edgy with Chilombo and took it to the extreme.

      There are many factors that make up eligibility for best album Grammy nod.

    I’m shocked that Jhene And John Legend did not WIN Best R& B Performance that’s the shocker. I feel bad for Jehene lost all her Grammy Nominations.

    She’s a nobody

  7. RnBee March 15, 2021

    It really was album of the year and the John Legend collaboration is dope. She should have won.

    I love Jhene’s voice and music a total vibe. Just like there are a lot of singers who can probably sing Sade’s song better than she can no one else has any business singing that music. Jhene is like Sade in that way to me. I love her! She is still young she will get a shot. Grammy’s are a popularity contest. I’m glad she got some shine though more people need to know who she is.
