Grammy 2021, nomination: Beyoncé spicca con nove candidature, The Weeknd snobbato

Grammy Awards 2021, ecco i nomi di tutti i cantanti candidati in ogni categoria dei premi musicali che saranno assegnati il 31 gennaio

Sono state rese note le nomination per i Grammy Awards 2021.

Sono 84, in totale, le categorie di questa edizione. Il presidente e CEO della Recording Academy, Harvey Mason Jr. è stato affiancato dai precedenti vincitori dei Grammy, candidati e aspiranti, da località remote nello svelare la maggior parte delle categorie. Altri coinvolti nella cerimonia sono stati il cantautore messicano Pepe Aguilar, la cantante afropop nigeriana Yemi Alade, il violinista classico Nicola Benedetti, la cantante cristiana contemporanea Lauren Daigle, il cantautore country Mickey Guyton, l’artista discografico Imogen Heap, la conduttrice di This Morning, Gayle King, la cantautrice Dua Lipa e la conduttrice di The Talk, Sharon Osbourne.

L’anno scorso, Billie Eilish ha conquistato i numeri maggiori di riconoscimenti pop con cinque Grammy.

Grammy 2021, Nomination, Beyoncé regina

Era prevedibile e così è stato. Beyoncé ha fatto incetta di nomination ai Grammy Awards 2021.  Grazie al brano Black Parade, la cantante è stata nominata come Record of the year e Song of the year, due tra i premi più importanti dell’evento musicale.

La canzone, che ha raggiunto la Top 40 delle classifiche pop, è stata anche candidata per la migliore canzone R&B e la migliore performance R&B.

E non finisce qui. Il brano Brown Skin Girl ha ottenuto una nomination come Miglior Video. Infine, il suo nome appare anche grazie alla collaborazione con Megan Thee Stallion in Savage che si è portata a casa le nomination Record of the year, Best rap performance e Best rap song.

Vincitrice di 24 Grammy in tutta la sua carriera, Beyoncé è la seconda artista più nominata nella storia dello show con 79 nomination. È pari a Paul McCartney, che quest’anno ha ottenuto una candidatura per “Best boxed or special limited edition package”.

Beyoncé è solo dietro a suo marito Jay-Z e a Quincy Jones, che hanno entrambi ottenuto 80 nomination ciascuno. Jay-Z ha ottenuto tre nomination quest’anno per le collaborazioni nlle canzoni di Beyoncé: ha co-scritto Black Parade e Savage. Jay-Z ha collezionato 22 Grammy ad oggi.

Grammy 2021, nomination, The Weeknd tra gli esclusi a sorpresa

Se quasi tutti si aspettavano il boom di nomination per Beyoncé, ha, invece, sorpreso l’assenza di nomination per The Weeknd. Il prossimo artista scelto per esibirsi durante l’intervallo del Super Bowl nell’edizione 2021, non ha ottenuto nessuna candidatura nonostante un album vendutissimo e anche applaudito dalla maggior parte della critica. Né l’album “After Hours” né i singoli estratti hanno avuto una possibilità per i Grammy 2021. In terra americana, si respira anche curiosità per l’assenza di Luke Combs, che quest’anno ha dominato le classifiche nazionali e stabilito record sui servizi di streaming. Anche lui è stato sorprendentemente escluso dalle nomination.
