Grammy Predictions – Rap Categories

The only genre of music with sales increases was hip-hop, so it makes sense that this genre is one of the most competitive. In fact, it was such a good year for hip-hop that many good releases were overshaddowed by phenomenal ones. Drake, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West released some of the best albums of all time, and Ludacris, Big Boi, and Young Money released stellar Platinum efforts. This gives this year’s Grammy’s so much competition. These are our picks, now comment on this, and tell us yours.

Best Rap Solo Performance

▪ “Over” – Drake
▪ “Not Afraid” – Eminem
▪ “How Low” – Ludacris
▪ “I’m Back” – T.I.
▪ “Power” – Kanye West

OUR PICK:

Critics loved Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, it was named Album of the Year by multiple publications, but because the album was not released in time to be elegible for the Grammys Kanye’s only nomination comes from the album’s lead single the incredible, cocky, and high-production Power.

OUR FAVORITE:

The best track on this list is Drake’s Over. The top ten hit’s sweeping orchestral mix and fast pacing lyrics defintely proved that Drake is one of the best rappers of all time.

Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group

▪ “Shutterbugg” – Big Boi & Cutty
▪ “Fancy” – Drake, T.I. & Swizz Beatz
▪ “On To The Next One” – Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz
▪ “My Chick Bad” – Ludacris & Nicki Minaj
▪ “Lose My Mind” – Young Jeezy & Plies

Rihanna Lacks Trend At Grammy Pre-Party

Rihanna went out parting tonight in preparation for the Grammy Awards on Sunday. The Barbadian superstar is nominated in five different categories including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Dance Recording.

She is also set to perform her #1 hit What’s My Name? with Drake at the awards ceremony.


Grammy Predictions – Dance Categories

Dance music make a triumphant return; whether you attribute that to Lady Gaga or all the house music played on Jersey Shore is up to you. We made are picks, check ’em out and tell us what you think.

Best Dance Recording

▪ “Rocket” – Goldfrapp
▪ “In for the Kill” – La Roux
▪ “Dance in the Dark” – Lady Gaga
▪ “Only Girl (In the World)” – Rihanna
▪ “Dancing on My Own” – Robyn

ANALYSIS:

In what will most likely be the most exciting category of the night it seems as though Electronic artist Goldfrapp stands no chance; the category will most likely go down to the other four divas. La Roux’s In For The Kill is lacking without the Kanye West verse he added on the remix, and Lady Gaga’s Dance in the Dark was praised in reviews of her album The Fame Monster last year, but the song lacks the popularity for Academy members to select it. The category will most likely come down to the commerical pick (Rihanna) and the indie fav (Robyn).
