Magazine’s 2020 Music Innovators, released their highly anticipated new album BE this month, featuring their new single “Life Goes On.” The song, which combines a hip-hop beat with the loop of an acoustic guitar, is about moving forward in the face of hardship. “I first study the topic and think about what story I need to tell and what kind of content it should encompass,” band member J-Hope told WSJ. about his songwriting process. “Sometimes the type of stories I’m dealing with are light, but sometimes they aren’t, so it’s important that I’m knowledgeable about what...

CARAMANICA The truth is that there is a whole level of success for a musician that has little to do with radio play, streaming success, album sales or touring scale. It is about being seen as the sort of musician that other musicians respect. And D Smoke might seem like a total outlier, but in this context, he’s not: His brother is SiR, a singer who’s signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, known as the home of Kendrick Lamar. In a(nother) year with no Kendrick album, D Smoke is a familiar alternative, and a reminder of the sorts of music — hip-hop included — that Grammy voters tend to favor: earnest, technique-driven, either shopworn or fine-tuned depending on your lens. That’s made manifest in the best rap album category (D Smoke, Nas, Freddie Gibbs, Jay Electronica and Royce Da 5’9”).

BTS earn their first Grammy nomination for 'Dynamite'

(CNN) K-pop group BTS, arguably the biggest boy band in the world, earned their first ever Grammy Award nomination on Tuesday for their hit song 'Dynamite.' The group posted a video of their live reaction on Twitter after the announcement, captioned with an excited keyboard smash. It sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart for two weeks -- the first time a K-pop group has achieved this milestone. Many had hoped for a nomination at last year's Grammy's, and voiced outrage on social media when the group was shut out. They weren't the first K-pop group to try to break the overseas market; YG Entertainment's Big Bang has had some success in international music awards and performance charts.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Taylor Swift was named artist of the year at the American Music Awards on Sunday and won two other trophies in a ceremony held live in Los Angeles amid tight coronavirus curbs. Bieber was named favorite male pop/rock artist and picked up his two other wins for his collaboration with country singers Dan + Shay on “10,000 Hours”. Becky G, whose parents are Mexican-American, won for best female Latin artist and dedicated her award to immigrant workers. Rapper Megan Thee Stallion marked her debut performance at the American Music Awards with “Body” and later accepted the best rap/hip-hop song trophy for her raunchy summer collaboration “WAP” with Cardi B. But she was beaten in the best new artist category by Los Angeles singer Doja Cat, who was also named favorite female soul/R&B artist.

And now they’ve done it again, with a new album recorded entirely during a global pandemic. BTS’ first Korean studio album (following three single albums or EPs in 2013 and 2014), “Dark & Wild,” dropped in 2014, and showcased a heavier rap sound on songs like “힙합성애지 (Hip Hop Phile)” that has carried through the rest of their later work; their first Japanese studio album dropped later that same year. That garnered them a performance slot at the American Music Awards and on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” in 2017. BTS’s popularity despite the America music industry’s xenophobic gatekeeping speaks only to the corporate gatekeepers’ inability to welcome the world in. Music is a universal concept and its representation as such, especially within the United States, has been a long time coming.

In the streaming era, artists have more options for releasing their music, including outside the traditional system of the three big music companies: Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group Corp. Kendrick Lamar’s 2018 Pulitzer Prize has helped make him one of the hottest free-agent prospects in the music business. Rapper Kendrick Lamar is expected to fulfill his contract after his next album; Travis Scott also has one more album to go. Via Cactus Jack, Mr. Scott signed hit artists like Sheck Wes, forging distribution alliances with established labels on a project-by-project basis. Today, Mr. Scott is one of music’s biggest names—McDonald’s recently offered a meal named for him—and he’s only 29 years old.
