GRAMMYs 2018 Date:

Updated on 26.01.2018
Dedicated followers of popular music and award shows are well-aware that the GRAMMYs’ Album of the Year is one of the most prestigious awards active musician can collect. As per usual, the competition is tough in this GRAMMYs category. The nominees are all certified critics’ darlings with at least one GRAMMY to their name. If you are betting on rappers at the GRAMMYs 2018, make sure to bet on the best: Jay-Z or Kendrick Lamar!
Why should you bet on Jay-Z’s 4:44 to win Album of the Year?
Unlike the other nominated albums, Jay-Z’s album, 4:44, failed to produce real hits. Yet, the record, that addresses racial issues in the United States as well as rumours about his marriage with Beyoncé, received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. So far, Jay-Z was awarded 21 times at the GRAMMYs, though never with Album of the Year. The legendary rapper was not even nominated in this particular category before.
As Ambrosiaforheads.com put, in previous years the Academy has used this award as “somewhat of a career achievement award,” which could definitely help the 48-year-old rappers’ chances of scoring it this year. The voters’ favourable opinion on 4:44 (4/1) is pretty obvious, considering the number of Jay-Z’s nominations in other categories.
Kendrick Lamar’s Album of the Year odds could easily change your mind
Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (124/125) has been featured in each and every ‘Album of the Year’ prediction. Undoubtedly, DAMN. was one of the biggest albums of 2018. The rapper was nominated for Album of the Year four times already. Most recently in 2016, when his album, To Pimp a Butterfly, lost to Taylor Swift’s 1989. Though, Lamar’s tendency to lose this category did not stop UK gambling news and the bookmakers to assign him some of the best GRAMMYs 2018 odds.
Unlike Jay-Z’s album, DAMN. houses a smash-hit single, HUMBLE., which could definitely shift the votes towards Lamar. “Lamar’s album is probably the more vital to 2017 between the two, either emerging triumphant would undoubtedly be a win for rap culture,” stated Billboard.
