I want album of the year to go to Doja Cat- Planet Her, but I would love for Jazmine Sullivan to win too for Heaux Tales. Both would be well-deserved. Doja Cat has probably been working harder than any other artist this year. She’s an amazing performer and people just love her. She’s featured-on damn near every song.
Knowing how the Grammys operate, I have a strong feeling the album of the year will most likely go to Olivia Rodrigo.
I just know Taylor Swift better not win, I’m sick of her. You know that trend of “who’s a celebrity you dislike for no reason?”, Taylor Swift is definitely on that list right along with Kanye West.
⭐️ = my personal favorites.
Till next time,
