Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar Lead Grammy Nominations! Cardi B & SZA snatch some too…

Jay-Z snags 8 nominations this year for the 2018 Grammy Awards, while Kendrick picks up 7. In the Top 4 categories, both of these gentleman secure nominations for Record of the Year (The Story of O.J./Humble) and Album of the Year (4:44/Damn)! Jay also snagged a nomination in Song of the Year. This really solidifies that this year is deemed the year of Hip Hop!

A few surprises on the list were Cardi B! She snagged 2 nominations for Bodak Yellow in rap categories, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. Newcomer SZA secured a nomination in the Top 4 as well, as she is nominated for Best New Artist. Outside of the Top 4, SZA also nominated for Best Rap/Sung Performance (Love Galore), Best R&B Song (Supermodel), Best Urban Contemporary Album (Ctrl) and Best R&B Performance (The Weekend).

If you ask me, the nominations are solid. I do feel like they shut out DJ Khaled, who has a tremendous year. Mary J. Blige, who had one of the best R&B albums this year. And Rihanna. I’m starting to think the Grammys hate her, after losing every Grammy last year, she had one of the biggest songs this summer (Wild Thoughts) and she was completely looked over.

Drake Withdraws From The Grammys

Published

on

By

Well well, it looks like Drake has chosen to not have his music nominated for Grammys. According to PopCrave, there isn’t any word on why he has made this decision to have his 2 nominations removed.

From my perspective, being that the news broke today, the last day of voting, he may have got the feeling that he wasn’t going to win. Drake dragged this album out over the whole year, only for the album to produce mid level songs. Did it make Billboard history? Sure. But was the quality of music up to par with today’s hottest rap music? Not even close.

Nice beats, and catchy rhymes can only get you so far in the Rap industry. Even the GOATs had to change up their formula after a while, and I think it’s about time for Drake to do the same.

RNU Records has you ‘Covered’ with Anisa Fowler’s new soul stirring single

Published

on

By

Joshua Arnoux is man who wears many hats, Husband , Father , Songwriter, Producer and Entreprenuer so it only makes sense that he would take things up a notch with the launch of his label RNU Records. As a young kid growing up in NYC, music was truly apart of his everyday life being surrounded by a musical family. Singing in church with his family is where he honed his craft as a singer/songwriter which also lead him to join an r&b group with some neighborhood friends where he was really able to showcase another side of his gift. As teachers caught on to his gift they recommended that he attend a performing arts school , so of course it only made sense that he would end up being accepted into the most popular one LaGuardia High School. It was there where Josh truly began to flourish as classically trained singer which allowed him to learn different genres of music and vocal techniques which ultimately helped him as an all around musician. His now artist Anisa was a classmate of his at time and eventually became part of a group called ‘Gods Plan’ who would years later split up after a failed record deal.  His passion for music opened doors for him not just as a performer , but as a musician and songwriter where he spent countless hours in the studio at Daddy’s House which was Diddy’s infamous studio where the best of the best came together to create. 

Within time Joshua’s dreams of being an artist started to fade but his love for the art of producing and writing never stopped as he teamed up with Anisa once again to work with her on her first solo single  ‘You Reign‘, which has made so many waves in Gospel music and is continuing to open up doors for both of them as they made an impact on many after successful showcase during this years Stellar Awards weekend. The love and support from their peers only helped them to put more time and focus into her long awaited EP which is highly in anticipation from Anisa’s growing fanbase. Now with the release of her single ‘Covered’, it’s clear that RNU Records is ready to take its place in the world of Gospel music and stand out in every way. Joshua clearly watched some of his inspirations like Kirk Franklin and Donald Lawrence , which helped him to take control of his own  destiny and make major moves which will solidify him as one to watch. Support RNU records and listen to and download Anisa Fowler’s latest single ‘Covered’ avail on streaming platforms. Tune into their celebratory release tonight at Clubhouse at 7pm via the Indie Artist Help Desk.
