Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj : The forgotten Grammy nominations 2019

While overseas our favorite celebs celebrate their Grammy nominations 2019, for certain artists such as Taylor Swift, Nick Minaj or Kanye West, this is not the time to party !

But what has happened in the past ? This is the question that all journalists arise today, a few hours after announcing the nominees for the Grammy Awards 2019 – including Ariana Grande, Beyoncé and Drake are a part of. If the last few days, the America of Trump is focused on the removal of Kevin Hart of the presentation of the upcoming Oscars, force is to recognize that the appointments of yesterday have been the effect of a new bomb. And this especially because the great favorites of this year (Taylor Swift, Cardi B and Ariana Grande) are much less cited than the male artists whose time of glory was in 2017 (Kendrick Lamar and Drake). For you, we review appointments widely criticized on social networks.


Taylor Swift

Real star of the ceremony (she had already won two of the Albums of the year), Taylor Swift had to make the headlines by dominating the nominations. Unfortunately, it was mentioned only once, in the category pop Album for Reputation. Of course, for users, this unique presence means that she is guaranteed to win – even in the face of Ariana Grande (Sweetener), Pink (Beautiful Trauma), Shawn Mendes (Shawn Mendes) or Camila Cabello (Camila). We are less safe. Reputation is far from having unanimous support from the public even though it sold over 2 million copies of the physical nothing that in the United States. The lack of nominations for “Delicate” or “Look What You Made Me Do” can mean that the organizers seek to create the surprise. But, as noted in the New York Times, snober Taylor Swift in the major categories (album of the year, song of the year, record of the year) could lead to a real drop !


Nicki Minaj

Another surprise of these nominations, the pure and simple absence of Nicki Minaj. Although his album the Queen is far from being a cardboard box, we expected to see the rapper in the categories of Best rap song (“Chun-Li“) and Best rap album (Queen). This has not been the case. Instead, the organizers have preferred to mention Cardi B is 5 times. Although already named 10 times, Nicki Minaj has never won Grammy Award. After the single was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, it goes without saying that Cardi B will also receive a Grammy before Nicki Minaj… Because unless a miracle happens, the voters will not be able to ignore for a long time the cardboard boxes that have been “I Like It”, “Girl Like You” and Invasion of Privacy. However, the lack of nomination for Nicki Minaj could help his narrative, future : even having “shown the way” to other artists, it always ends up shunned by an industry-male or male-oriented.


Kanye West

We’re not going to lie, naming Kanye West in important categories of the Grammy Awards, 2019 would have been a counter-sense. The rapper has further marked the year for his comments in the press for his music. Nevertheless, it is important to note, Kanye West has won a nomination in the very prestigious category of Best music producer, non-classical. Because in addition to Ye, Kanye West has produced four other albums, all acclaimed by the critics : Daytona of Pusha T, Kids See Ghosts with Kid Cudi, Nasir of Nas and K. T. S. E. of Teyana Taylor. In the Face of Pharrell Williams, he could create a surprise. Unless the voters fail to realize that the producer ofEverything Is Love of Carter, Sweetener Ariana Grande and Man of the Woods Justin Timberlake is a little more deserving…


Ariana Grande

To say that Ariana Grande has been left out of the Grammy nominations 2019 is incorrect. The interpreter of “Thank U, ” Next” is present in two categories. But this seems to us very little ! Sweetener has all his songs in the category pop Album, while Taylor Swift is in the starting blocks. Side Best performance pop solo, “God is a woman” will have to face the live version of “Joanne” Lady Gaga and “Havana” of Camila Cabello. Only here, we hoped to see “No Tears Left to Cry” nominated in the category Record of the year , which rewards the performer, the producer, the innovative sound and the mixer of a title.


Beyoncé and Jay-Z

We have spoken at length at the time of the release of the clip d'”going apeshit“, the carters are currently most in need of the recognition of the Grammy Awards to fill stadiums. Shunned with I Am… Sasha Fierce, Beyoncé and Lemonade, the interpreter of “Training” seems to have been a reason. That being said, Jay-Z still hasn’t gotten 8 Grammy nominations 2018, which resulted in a flop resounding. Not to worry ! The Carter will have to this year just three nominations : Best performance R & B (“Summer”), best album-contemporary (Everything Is Love) and Clip of the year (“going apeshit”). It should be noted, is that in each of these categories, they are office favorites.
