It’s that time of year again. Not only will we all reminisce on our 2021 soundtrack via Spotify Wrapped, but the 2022 GRAMMYs Nominations just dropped, and they’re good! From Baby Keem and Saweetie being nominated as Best New Artist to Hit-Boy for Producer of The Year and Silk Sonic pretty much sweeping the nominations with their smooth, nostalgic sound, next year’s GRAMMYS are looking lit.
