Inside Album Of The Year
It was probably a surprise to everyone when Beck’s “Sea Change” was nominated for the Album of the Year GRAMMY. Which doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t check it out.
There was “Happy.” And then there was “the new black” and the Native American headdress. But overall, Pharrell’s year was pretty amazing.
This year his million-selling debut album, In the Lonely Hour, is nominated for Album of the Year at the GRAMMYs while Smith himself is nominated for a total of six awards.
In addition to changing the whole paradigm on marketing an album, Beyoncé released a dual audio and visual album, complete with music videos to accompany every track—something only a few artists have done before.
With ‘x,’ Ed Sheeran took a big step towards credibility with music critics.
