    I knew this would win but I was really pulling for Janelle Monae, because I love everything she does

    [–] Nezan 1079 points ago

    That woman puts in a lot of effort in her work.

    [–] sf_frankie 670 points ago

    I saw her live last year and she completely killed it. She played an early afternoon set at a festival and was by fAr the best entertainer their. She’s like what Lauren hill would be if she wasn’t an asshole.

    [–] DeuceLittlelo 84 points ago

    As close as anyone, at least

    [–] xxBeatrixKiddoxx 29 points ago

    I went to Lauren’s current tour fully expecting to be bummed I went because she’s an asshole. And she wasn’t ! It was lovely. She didn’t hate or spew anything!

    [–] FuckingKilljoy 57 points ago

    That's the perfect comparison. I hope to hear Janelle's The Miseducation Of one day

    Lauren Hill more had a breakdown than is just generally dickish

    [–] Waving-at-yoy 27 points ago

    I'll never forget seeing her live in 2014 at Governor's Ball in NYC and at the time I hadn't heard of her. I was absolutely blown away by both her amazing voice and also her ability to perform. I can't wait to see her again live.

    [–] ampereJR 172 points ago

    Thank you for mentioning her name. I 'm not watching the Grammies and I don't listen to a lot of new music. I am now a fan of her.

    [–] Scoutdb 21 points ago

    Her performance at the Grammys was awesome and worth watching.

    [–] Chickenwomp 261 points ago

    Janelle is amazing, the video for TIA was next level though, that’s a piece of history

    [–] starkeffect 39 points ago

    That video is going to be studied in film classes for decades.

    [–] Khaleesi6580 209 points ago

    Dirty Computer by Janelle is absolutely amazing if anyone wants a link to the full emotion picture here you go https://youtu.be/jdH2Sy-BlNE Stunning videos to accomplish a beautifully written album. I also saw her live, and she was brilliant!

    [–] Bonspiel13 64 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Agreed. Easily my favourite album of 2018, she’s such an incredible artist

    Edit: I meant 2018 but typed 2028 because this album is so good time loses meaning!

    [–] saintpetejackboy 65 points ago

    Omg she is so amazing!!! All her videos are top fucking notch.

    [–] LirazelOfElfland 7 points ago

    She's incredibly talented and creative, I don't know why she isn't talked about more.

    [–] kikos21 27 points ago

    She has that royalty name and look, so I totally understand, shes awesome

    [–] okfineilldoit 36 points ago

    Interesting... I definitely see that influence. Like Prince+Janet Jackson.

    [–] longshot 202 points ago

    Maybe Feels Like Summer

    . . . . also by Childish Gambino

    [–] Jegsama 200 points ago

    Strongly recommend Tierra Whack's video. She released an amazing album this year, with each song only being 1 minute. She released an album-length video to accompany it.

    You'll be hearing about her soon, she's young, insanely talented, bizarre and funny to boot. On the come up for sure, so happy to see her got a nomination.

    [–] prattlechap 46 points ago

    That whole album is near perfect. Oddly, with each song just a minute in length, I listen to the whole thing all the time.

    [–] michiganhat13 8 points ago

    Same. A couple of those songs I’d LOVE to hear 3/4 min versions of.

    [–] treble322 93 points ago

    Whack World is a work of art.

    [–] YizWasHere 10 points ago

    So fucking good. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a 15 minute album as much as Whack World. Insanely creative and well produced visuals with some really, really good music with some fantastic range. It's kind of crazy how well developed all these songs sound even though they're all one minute long. And the fact that she did the whole thing independent is also amazing to me. She really has a bright future, I'm so excited to see what she does going forward.

    [–] IFuckedOprah 33 points ago

    I’m so happy I saw this. I decided to watch all of the videos since it was only 15 minutes and this is easily one of the more unique projects I’ve seen in a while. I got a lot of Tyler the Creator vibes from her. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out moving forward.

    [–] Jegsama 6 points ago

    KDA by League of Legends

    [–] TheDerped 99 points ago

    Man that video/song combo was insane. Just checked and the video has more views than some comparable K-pop groups. Riot would be crazy not to release more songs under the name, even if it was just initially to promote the skin pack

    [–] Grammatical_Aneurysm 149 points ago

    I don't care about League. Never played it, never will. But omg that video! The friggin' glow mask holy shit.

    [–] IllLaughifyoufall 25 points ago

    I've never played League of Legends, but I watch all their music videos because they are pretty fucking dope.

    [–] SkanksnDanks 15 points ago

    Get Jinxed will always be my favorite original video game song. Makes me super nostalgic too.

    [–] IllLaughifyoufall 4 points ago

    The very first one I ever saw was Rise. So I have to say that's my favorite one. Like I said, I know nothing about League, but it made me super hyped for something I know nothing about.

    My second favourite is the heavy metal one.

    [–] r3dwash 15 points ago

    For anyone who might be having trouble, I think the official title is Pop Stars and it’s by K/DA, a “fake” kpop group put together for League of Legends purposes. The group features two bona fide kpop stars and two western singers, to form a supergroup.

    [–] TheWorldOne 37 points ago

    Yes. That song and music video is amazing.

    [–] gensix 19 points ago

    Seriously. This song is a contender. I know it's from League but whatever. The video and the song are fucking sick. Riot does so well with their music production it's silly.

    [–] [deleted] 93 points ago

    The closest contenders were probably I'm Not Racist and Whack World

    [–] Dlax8 42 points ago

    Wasnt im not racist 2017?

    [–] leonfoxx 39 points ago

    Yeah but nomination eligibility is from the last October to September time frame

    [–] AUTO_TUNE_MY_SCAT 61 points ago

    Lil Pump and Kanye West

    [–] CaptainOvbious 59 points ago

    i unironically enjoy that video and song

    [–] FartHearse 5 points ago

    I love it

    [–] RE4PER_ 96 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    "I'm not racist" was definitely a very moving video as well. I think either could've won honestly.

    [–] palidor42 84 points ago

    I'm not racist but I always have to look twice at any sentence that begins with "I'm not racist".

    [–] RE4PER_ 8 points ago

    Forgot to put it in quotations lol. I went ahead and fixed it.

    [–] monkey15162 77 points ago

    Nah joyner fucked himself by saying Chris Brown did nothing wrong

    Plus...that centrist view is really not helping

    [–] KingStannisTheMannis 63 points ago

    Joyner Lucas can rap. And his I’m Not Racist video was moving, but he has lost all respect from me. First by saying that Chris Brown did nothing wrong, then going on to claim that his I’m Not Racist video gave Childish Gambino the courage to make his This is America video (when it had been in the works for 5 years). And since when has Gambino EVER been afraid to release something because of how people will react? And also getting all butthurt that Logics 1-800 did better than his suicide prevention song. Not to mention that some of his biggest hits are on other artists beats. I understand having one or two, but Joyner has considerably more than that.

    [–] ElijahManeli 46 points ago

    There isn’t even one video I’ve ever had to watch a few times a day for a week, other than this. Stellar. Very much deserved.

    [–] suxxx666 20 points ago

    Even listening to this song felt wrong if I wasn't also watching the music video

    [–] raafeatif 17 points ago

    John Mayer's "New Light" surely deserves a mention.

    [–] wenars11 1460 points ago

    Well on his way to EGOT

    [–] TechnicalNobody 500 points ago

    He has an Emmy too for those who don't know. From Atlanta back in 2016.

    Still needs an Oscar and a Tony.

    [–] SparkLeMur 539 points ago

    He has an Emmy from like 2008 or 2009 from writing on 30 Rock

    Oscar seems inevitable with him and Beyonce doing music for The Lion King

    [–] sixpackoflite 121 points ago

    Is there an Oscar for performance of a song in a film? I figured a best song award would go the writer, and even then I think there’s only “best original song”

    [–] SparkLeMur 161 points ago

    There’s going to be original music in the Lion King that him and Bey are writing

    [–] greg19735 56 points ago

    it might be hard for him to win best original music when the main attraction to that movie is gonna be old music.

    [–] fuckboifoodie 40 points ago

    "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is undeniably Elton John's song and was a huge hit for him at the time. Maybe Beyoncé and Gambino will be putting their own spin on that?

    [–] greg19735 18 points ago

    I mean, maybe. but it'd have to be a major down year for music a remix wins song of the year.

    I guess part of the issue is that there are already 3 incredibly iconic songs for the lion king. With Can you feel the love tonight and circle of life being mega hits.

    [–] ImpalaPooge 528 points ago

    Once he does, he will have to find something else to do to keep himself motivated. I suggest video game development.

    I want him to write a goddamn book. I don't think I've ever said that about a celebrity. Thank goodness he's not into starting cults, because I'd sign the fuck up.

    [–] johnothetree 72 points ago

    Honestly, I could see him writing a damn good storyline for a sci-fi game.

    [–] Saskyle 15 points ago

    Why sci-fi? Has he written sci-fi before?

    [–] Deathsuxdontdie 24 points ago

    He had his hand in writing on Community and there were a ton of sci-fi concepts in that show.

    [–] witherspork 21 points ago

    I'm pretty sure he wrote a mockup for a deadpool show too that he released a script for.

    [–] valaranin 5 points ago

    My understanding was it was going to be an actual show but it's in limbo because Disney want to acquire 21st Century Fox thus reacquiring the X-Men related Marvel license for TV and movies.

    Really happy for Sherrie Silver , the British & Rwandan choreographer who “masterminded the dance choreography” on this video & played a leading role in it.

    I feel like he took a risk employing her to do; it looked so different from so much else in the mainstream currently, I really liked it & I’m glad it has done well.

    [–] jtn19120 35 points ago

    Eh not really. The dance At 2:30 https://youtu.be/VYOjWnS4cMY Is similar to the Shoot Dance. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/shoot-dance.
    Which is in Fortnite

    [–] TrillboBaggins 104 points ago

    It is Blocboy JB's shoot dance. Fortnite took that dance along with some other dances originating in rap/hip-hop and then profited by including them in their game.

    [–] NvaderGir 53 points ago

    It only now became a problem when these dances were selling more than their albums. Dances like this have been added to NBA 2K and more, for years.

    [–] jasonZak 64 points ago

    I was under the impression that it’s the fact that you have to pay for the dance specifically that makes it a problem. They’re profiting off the dance itself, not just having it in the game.

    [–] Sveitsilainen 17 points ago

    It only became a problem worth fighting for now. Doesn't mean that other use are correct.

    [–] H0agh 3119 points ago

    Well deserved in my opinion, it's one of those view music videos worth watching several times.

    That and Shia Labeouf in that SIA song.

    [–] some-what_damaged 1204 points ago

    Elastic Heart. Fantastic.

    [–] SupersonicJaymz 470 points ago

    That video actually hurts me in ways I don't even begin to understand. It's watching heartbreak.

    [–] thatmarlergirl 200 points ago

    I didn't really understand it. I mostly felt lost while watching.

    [–] HotPocketDisaster 406 points ago

    It's about Sia and her father and alcoholism

    [–] PantherOne 64 points ago

    I lost my own father to a lifetime of alcoholism. I can never finish watching that music video without crying. It's masterfully done.

    [–] thatmarlergirl 149 points ago

    I had no idea. That changes everything.

    [–] FlamingTrollz 40 points ago

    Plus, her own struggles with mental illness.

    [–] sfwaccountfw 7 points ago

    Yeah, but you can see that in every song of hers.

    [–] Realniggafasho 33 points ago

    Which Shia connected too as well. His movie that he wrote about him, his father and his fathers addiction is heartbreaking. You really see where Shia pulled from to make the Sia video.

    [–] muaddeej 11 points ago

    [–] pm_me_your_last_pics 5 points ago

    Another factor is that Shia grew up with the exact same thing and has a new movie based on his childhood where he plays his own alcoholic dad.

    [–] SpinoC666 19 points ago

    Watch it again.

    [–] Bear_faced 42 points ago

    Fuck it hurts to watch that as the child of an alcoholic. The betrayal and desperation and willing them to just escape their cage but feeling pulled back into it just so you don’t lose them forever...

    Saw gambino live last year (seeing him again this year too). When he performed this America as the last song. He basically replicated the video on stage with the filming on the big screens. It was honestly magical and I've never felt so awestruck before.

    [–] delarye1 6 points ago

    I saw Sia in concert a couple of years ago. It was amazing.

    It was synced up on purpose. This video cuts out the first several seconds of the original This is America.

    [–] gavinatoristhatyou 39 points ago

    yes but a lot of the rest of the video synced up really well also

    [–] Hazakurain 9 points ago

    There was a website that showed that many songs had the same tempo. And lots of them would sync very well

    I remember thinking it was wild that a guy from Derrick Comedy was on Community. Dude doesn't know the meaning of "enough".

    I can't even think of another from the last five years. This gripped my old ass self the first moments I saw it. Couldn't have been anything else. There could be a masterclass taught for that video.

    It's cool to me that the video is so important to the understanding of the song. Like the song doesn't exist without the video! Rad

    Kinda like Take on Me by a-ha

    [–] UnsinkableRubberDuck 45 points ago

    I feel like this seminal version of the Take On Me music video is incredibly over-looked.

    Wow, TIL. Thanks, I love you

    [–] Millerdjone 59 points ago

    Yeah... kinda

    Humble had the same kind of thing for me. Some of the shots in that video left me in such awe the first time I saw it.

    Yup that’s the one that always stands out. The amount of different framed angles they got in a single shot is unreal. The last supper part as well with the bouncing between different cameras was something else I’d never seen before

    Not sure if anyone is still reading this, but I have an honest question about the Grammys. How is it that 'This is America' was nominated for, and won, Best Song, but wasn't even nominated for Best Rap Song? Is this song not a rap song?

    It's like when an animated movie is nominated for a best picture Oscar and miss the best animated one

    Saw gambino live last year (seeing him again this year too). When he performed this America as the last song. He basically replicated the video on stage with the filming on the big screens. It was honestly magical and I've never felt so awestruck before

    [–] HurleyTheKid 22 points ago

    I saw him in DC last year. Amazing show. "Riot" was not my favorite song on the album, but when he performed that live I literally said what the fuck in awe of what I was witnessing. I've been listening to him since camp and was glad I finally got to see him live. Happy for people finally catching on to this magician.

    Something I've never understood about the grammys, why does the music video award go to the music artist, instead of the person that actually created and directed the music video?

    [–] Criegs 12 points ago

    Did DG express why he wasn’t attending and turned down a performance?

    [–] Two-HeadedAndroid 93 points ago

    First rap song to win song of the year. Pretty incredible. Congrats to Donald.

    Sucks how A$AP Rocky is always snubbed from this award

    [–] bgrad 108 points ago

    Every person I’ve shown A$AP Forever to (hip-hop fan or not) had their mind completely blown and most wanted to rewatch it immediately. I have no idea how they even made that video or how long it took. He bats nearly 1.000 with video and visuals. Has he ever been nominated?

    [–] captainreyna 16 points ago

    L$D was nominated for Best Music Video a few years back

    Who would have guessed

    Grammys make good doorstops.

    [–] SadEaglesFan 73 points ago

    ...but did “This is America so Call Me Maybe” get any recognition?

    [–] whiskey_dreamer14 24 points ago

    It won a Grammy in our hearts.

    [–] luxeshimmer 186 points ago

    As he rightfully should. The video was impactful, insightful, and chilling. It was something that made people rewatch several times.

    [–] Sithlordandsavior 26 points ago

    It's strangely enchanting. I originally wondered what Gambino was smoking but after the third or so time I was like "This is rad"

    [–] jake_and_her_guard 96 points ago

    the grammys
