I dont know why i dont like this girl and her type of songs..she is fuvking weird

Well congrats to her


Bon ivers songs are weird too.
Some songs are albums appear weird until after some years. Some don't though.
Like nora Jones come away with me album that won album of the year till this day doesn't appeal to me.
Till today I find it hard to like most of Radiohead's songs.
But they are consistently and constantly ranked extremely high anytime they drop an album.

The other albums in the category are weird too including Vampire weekends and lana del Rey's(even though she's pop)

Yet Nigerian musicians are here deceiving themselves with false celebrity attributes
Jumping up and down on stage with frog voice

Good and philosophical music died long ago in Nigeria

Asslicker we live in a different world. live and let live. Are you not tired of using the west as a yardstick for everything we do in Africa?
If Nigerians should Rate this Billie in our own standard she'll win zero award in Niaja.

Africa should create their own award and forget about Grammy, the west don't pay attention to our awards here but we crave to identify with them at all cost.
Talking about ever green music this current Generation have lost it both Locally and internationally. Nigerian Old school artists made good music back then same with foreign.

talking about Wack songs those America TRAP rappers are singing Rubbish which can't last for even a month.

Re: Grammy Awards: Billie Eilish Sweeps Five Awards, Sets New Record by PropaMan: 1:10pm On Jan 27, 2020
when my people go wise sef,
dont you people know grammy award was meant for white people and , that's why people like this 18 year old is winning 5 awards, for instance tyler the creator won best rap album, but if you listen to his speech he said he's album wasn't supposed to be a rap album but pop album, because white people feel they own pop music they prefer to give it to only whites.

Now regarding burna boy and angelique category, no doubt burna deserved that award but it was given to Angelique because she was already a 3 times grammy award winner, giving the award to another black gives us more superiority than them, that's the same thing that happened to kanye and jay z, they were given awards multiple times when others deserved it, because they didn't want to give black artists more superiority.

even angelique dedicated the award to burna because she knew he deserved it more, because of the effort he put. To me the only problem here was burna bragging about winning the award, he shouldnt have, he should have known better, but as per say na Naija i understand his plight. well he can make it next time.

PS: y'all hating on burna i dont understand, what have you achieved globally with your life to hate and curse another person doing better than you. This Nigeria sef, plenty people just dey carry evil for mind.

Pop star Billie Eilish swept the board at the 2020 Grammys, winning five awards, including best new artist and song of the year.

The 18-year-old also won album of the year for her debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, which was recorded in her childhood home in LA.

She replaces Taylor Swift as the youngest person ever to win the award.

"I joke around a lot at these things, but I genuinely want to say I'm so grateful," said the singer.

Eilish triumphed in all of the Grammys "big four" marquee categories - song of the year, record of the year, album of the year and best new artist.

The nominees for album of the year were Bon Iver Lana Del Rey ("Norman F***ing Rockwell" Eilish ("When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go" Ariana Grande ("Thank U, Next H.E.R. ("I Used to Know Her Lil Nas X Lizzo ("Cuz I Love You" and Vampire Weekend Father of the Bride"

She is the first person to achieve the feat since Christopher Cross in 1981.

Her elder brother, Finneas O'Connell, also picked up producer of the year for his work on Eilish's album.

bruh, her lyrics has nothing to do here, everybody get lyrics for their music, it depends on the people giving the award. Grammy is a white supremacy award, how many blacks have won a grammy in pop since micheal jackson, go and check the history of grammys. only 10 blacks have won grammy album of the year since the start of the award.

everytime they say burna boy una go shout we we by kidjo, Fam nobody knows the damn fucking song, it never topped any chart in any music streaming site or country. she never sold out any show or concert, people dont go to club to listen to angelique, call a fuckin spade a spade broo.

See naked ignorance.

Does this one know Burna was nominated for Africa category.?

Burna genre is alien to American or British music.

Look for another consolation

He would have won if he were gay or transgender and praising the devil. That’s the future of music.

it is not white supremacist award. it is academic award just like oscar or nobel. music scholars not fans or record sales determine the winner.
Kidjo is even from benin republic. brenda had won grammy , she is from south africa . even alpha blonde , reggae star from ivory coast won grammy for best reggae album many years back. kidjo, alpha blonde and brenda all sangs in both native and international languages.

Originality, style and global appeal. This is paramount to win a Grammy.

Also if we don’t take our craft seriously the west won’t either. Music shudnt be all about jokes and stupidity all the time.
