Why the 61st Annual Grammy Awards Telecast Was the Queerest, Fiercest, and the Best Yet

None Even if you didn't watch it, you knew that this year's Grammys were like any other's year's Grammy Award telecast: it was simply far, far too long.Yet that wasn't the only negative to be noted on the ceremony's 61st iteration. This time around, there were far too few awards were given out during the televised portion, several acceptance speech winners were played off (and twice abruptly cut off), one of the night's big winners wasn't even there (Childish Gambino/Donald Glover), and Recordi...

The Grammys Could Have Been Worse!

Could it have been any more obvious that the Grammys were desperately trying to do some serious image rehab this year?

How Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, H.E.R. and More Made R&B New Again

R&B has been riding a roller coaster over the past few decades, swooping from its commercial and aesthetic peak in the late 1960s and early 1970s to a low point around 10 years ago, when it was little more than a melodic appendage to rap’s rhythms and rhymes.

On Black Girl Magic and Georgia Anne Muldrow's Latest, 'Overload'

None The song "Vital Transformation" is solemn yet expansive, austere yet hopeful. It floats along, kickdrum and handclap accents punctuating the lyrics instead of marking four-on-the-floor. The song itself a swirl, it begins with the swirling, layered incantation, "transforming changing higher spiraling higher", repeated three times, along with the insistence, "it's vital". The lyrics read like stanzas of poetry on the page, but take on a warm, relatable quality when their author, Georgia Anne...

#GrammysSoDiverse: How the Recording Academy Finally Found a Firestorm-Proof Slate of Nominees

It’s no understatement to say that the Grammy Awards faced some challenges with their 2019 nominations. While the nominee list for the 2018 awards was the most racially diverse in the Recording Academy’s history, it was painfully low on female representation — three of the four main categories each had one female nominee — a […]
