Black artists are rarely awarded top honors at The Grammys, according to a study released this week by the USC Annenberg Inclusion initiative. Researchers found that Black performers represented about 38% of all artists on Billboard’s signature chart from 2012 to 2020, yet they received only 26.7% of top Grammy nominations during the same period. Only 24% of this year’s top Grammy nominees were Black, according to the study. Lead study author Dr. Stacy L. Smith blames the lack of diversity among Grammy voters and the music industry’s executive ranks for the lack of Black major Grammy winners.⁠

  1. Oh I’m sure they’ll be offering them tomorrow! It will be participation awards all round, rather than based on ability or chart success! 🤦🏻‍♂️

  2. Forget the Grammys and create your own table!! We don’t need the Grammys to validate our greatness, we don’t need the Oscars to validate how amazing we are!!

    Let that sink in!!

  3. Ummm artists have been saying this for years!!! Y’all now need a study to figure that out?!! 🤦🏽‍♀️

  4. We didn’t need a study to realize that, we realized that when Macklemore won rap album of the year over Kendrick and Jay Z and Kanye
