Did not expect that.

Might breathe a little life back into the album and it would be nice to see him pick up a couple.

I think Prince is now in that safe, established elder statesman category that is going to ensure that if he releases an album of even the slightest commercial significance he's going to get a nod or two. 5 is impressive though.

Congrats!

A performance live from 3121 would be smart. Still seems odd he got 5 nods since the album tanked after the #1 debut.

Hey, 3121 best urban / alternative song, that sounds right to me.

I mean, most black artists nowadays dont seem to be very interested in experimentating with sound and production, trying something alternative. But Prince, during big parts his career has always experimentated a lot, and has thereby influenced other black artist as the Jam and Lewis, The Neptunes and Timbaland, who commercialized his sounds and made big money out of it.

Alltough i dont consider 3121 his best track in the experimental vein (i mean, tracks like Automatic, Crystal Ball and Shockedelica are far superior to it) if one man should receive a grammy for combining 'urban' sounds with an alternative twist, it should be Prince.

If there is a performance I hope it will be from an upcoming release. 3121 -- letitgo.

And if the Grammy producers want to have any hope of putting on a show that doesn't bore everyone to tears, they need to start begging Prince NOW to perform.

Question: Wasn't Satisfied released as a single? I heard this song alot on the local "Quiet Storm" station. I thought this song would be Prince's best chance at a Grammy nom, along with Black Sweat.

I also predict he will one grammy at least.

The grammy jury is quite conservative, giving away prizes in a safe way, trying hard to keep their friends at the record companies.

But is that an honour for Prince? not sure about that...

I thought so. At least here (the Bay Area) I heard Satisfied a lot more than BLB.

pleasant surprise

and hey... these are the Grammy's. Any given year its hard to figure are they going to select winners based on popularity or quality of product...? He has been nominated a few times when it wasn't expected and has won... so it isn't to far fetched to believe he may walk away with a couple.

Well whatever he wins, I know for a fact he will not win the urban/alternative category, because he's up against "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley, and that song was HUGE this year.

i'm sure he'll win @ least one. the news i read didn't even mention he was being nominated for 5- i had to go on the grammy website and read all the nominations. there's actually alot. like 102 categories. it'll be nice if he did a performance. but i generally don't watch the grammys.

Wow! That was unexpected to say the least but it's definitely what I call "still being relevant!" wink

Congrats, Prince! I hope this means we can get a hot televised Prince performance to warm up a cold winter's night! smile

Is this the most he's been nominated in a year?

He'll win at least one maybe 2.

Unfortunately this nixes a chance at new music for awhile longer.

The FACT that someone like Alicia Keys has more Grammies than Prince leaves me with the idea that a Grammy win is sort of meaningless.
