    that song was bad. I guarantee noone would have cared about this song if it weren't for the video. High social impact and controversy of a music video does not make the song attached to it great.

    Good job childish Gambino... You better shit to do then sit around and wait over an award. That to me is childish.

    Music is so shit today thanks to 'artists' like Childish Gambino. Also its HILARIOUS that rich black people STILL have beefs with each other. I thought people said poverty was the cause of ghetto black behavior but apparently not when you have so many rich blacks still behaving like your average ghetto thug.

    This Is America deserved this and Record Of The Year. It's a song that very few in its time and ever have ever been as smart in execution and presentation. It makes comments about blind and rampant consumerism and entertainment, distracting from the true issues that lie at hand with America, with instrumentals showing how African American culture is intrinsically related with American pop culture, though black people are constantly being victimized and live a hard experience within the country. It would have been pretty antithetical of Gambino to show support for this award show. Simply put, this song is incredible and completely deserves its accolades, and if you disagree, you'll have a hard time backing that up. I also don't get the hype for In My Blood. It has some good ideas, but the lyrics aren't very special. The singing is nice, but the production is overblown during the chorus. It's not very interesting as a piece of sonic conceptualization. Better works have dealt with similar themes from the same year. Just listen to ye and Kids See Ghosts, Kanye (and Cudi's) vulnerability shines on those albums, and packaging of the themes is more interesting, and something if given the choice between that or In My Blood, I would rather listen to Kanye because the overall auditory experience is more layered and more rewarding to go back to.

    Bless shawn ❤️he really deserved it , but this year he got a nom, next year he'll win it. tbh I'm not that surprised "this is America" won and we've got to remember this category is to recognise songwriters.

    • Flor Sapriza
      Flor Sapriza 2 months ago +2

      Jsalcedo23 @Jsalsedo23 did you hear "In My Blood", it's not a simple pop song, it's a really beautiful song, very personal and so relatable for a lot of people. And it helped lots of people. I'm not saying "This is America" isn't a good song, I'm just saying Shawn deserved that award. And please don't say we wanted him to win because he's cute.

    • Joslyn Marqs
      Joslyn Marqs 2 months ago +1

      Jsalcedo23 that's. Exactly. Wht. I'm. Trying to say??? Tf? I JUST said " this category is to recognise songwriters" and this is America is a meaningful song but if I'm being honest I'm not convinced because if u take it solely for the lyrics it doesn't hv much of the impact as it is with the music deserves record of the year for sure don't know about song of the year. This also doesn't mean u have to disregard all the other talented nominees (not just Shawn). We've just got to trust the judges. And I'm saying he deserves it because he works soo hard , he's not just a pretty face, if only you knew.
      Edit: I'm also not "annoyed" Shawn didn't win, we r just as proud of him for getting a nom. And at no point in my initial comment did I say anything about his looks.😴

    • PopOff!
      PopOff! 2 months ago +1

      Eh? Shawn arrived on his looks. Just like ever other SM star looks first talent second. You never see an "ugly" social media superstars become famous pop stars. Not to discredit what talent he or may or may not have. I just know it is looks first talent later.
      As to Gambino winning SOTY my opinion was a political statement by the Grammys... the song is meh- nay NOTHING without the video really. If there had been no video nobody would be talking about this song. So it winning for songwriting is a miss for me. But The Grammys are always off base, especially when the get political.

      To me, the song is primarily about America being an allegory for rabid consumerism, desensitization to violence, and unabashed sensationalism. What we radically do to distract ourselves from the ongoing problems, even when they're happening _right in front of us._

      The song is about a lot of things, so make of it what you will, there's no need to argue about it. You're most likely right anyway.

      James Arthur why are you talking if you don't know?? Who said I'm white?? And no, I'm the type of fangirl that' s happy when he seems to be happy and is with his family. I literally cry everytime I listen to some songs because they are really beautiful. And he is my inspiration, and i admire him so much because he is a great person. His music and the way he sees the world have helped me a lot. And "In My Blood" its a beautiful song that talks about things that lot of people can relate, and it also helped lot of people, it really deserved that GRAMMY. I literally cried when he didn't win. I'm not saying "This is America" isn't a good song, all I'm saying is that I preferred "In My Blood", just an opinion. And please stop with your stupid stereotypes of what a fangirl is.

      There are a lot of artist in this music industry but the one’s who nominated ofc that means they’re all deserving but only one can take the trophy home and everyone has the right to say/write their opinions about who should win or not. But I’m just pissed/not happy about how TF cardi b won one of the main award when you have (Astroworld) ,(scorpion ),(kamakazi) the albums like this by fact or by numbers ahead compared to her and Travis should win album of the year

      Jsalcedo23 why are you saying we want Shawn to win because he is cute?? Like i love his music, like, i didn't buy his albums to listening to his face. He is really talented and "In My Blood" its a beautiful song

      We get it, you think he’s cute! Doesn’t mean he should win for that reason.
      This is America is a once in a decade type of socially conscious song and on no planet should a simple pop song win over it.

      +Karthik Davuluri I understand that and my heart breaks for him that he lost his father but for most artists this is the biggest night of their careers- their lives and it just seems a little odd to me he wasn't there. I don't know if that's ever even happened before where someone won two of the biggest awards of the night and wasn't there. Just weird to me, but hey that's my opinion and you are entitled to yours.

      You're being disingenuous
      Maybe the songs didn't win a grammy because the years those songs released in were more competitive for the music industry? 2018 was shit for music overall. I mean "I Like It" which is a sampled song from decades ago got nominated for song of the year and it isn't even original, more like a remix lol
      I can't think of any 2018 songs that deserve song of the year, no wonder This Is America won it. It was viral for weeks which something no other song could achieve this year

      Have you ever seen the music video or read the lyrics to this is America?
      It’s an once In a decade type of socially conscious song.

      Funny video? yup as expected, dumb fans. Yeah it created memes which is irony of what Glover was trying to explaining his point. Well in artistic point of view this music video was better in many expects. Not every music videos had to have perfect sunshine, perfect sunset, perfect love story to make it relevant for ages just like the videos you mentioned. If it has also convincing message and portrayed through artistic way then yes it will be relevant and unforgettable for many years. Glover really made his point perfectly clear in his " this is america " music video and he was right about people like you. People love safe bubble can't face the reality so they either make meme or stupid judgement out of it to avoid the reality. Gun violence is not going anywhere and so does the relevancy of this music video. Boy Im glad for once that grammy did gave one of the deserved ones. If you don't like it. Its fine. Deal with it!!!

      Agreed nobody would be talking about the song if there had been no video. Which, kudos for making music videos relevant again. But to win for songwriting... clearly a political statement by the Grammy voters.

      Jsalcedo23 did you hear "In My Blood", it's not a simple pop song, it's a really beautiful song, very personal and so relatable for a lot of people. And it helped lots of people. I'm not saying "This is America" isn't a good song, I'm just saying Shawn deserved that award. And please don't say we wanted him to win because he's cute.
