For the first time in Grammy history, no white male artists are nominated for Album of the Year. Billboard Pride's Patrick Crowley joins Cheddar to preview the ceremony's most intriguing categories. He explains what's taken the Recording Academy so long to break down longstanding representative boundaries.
Album of the Year isn't the only category that's making history. Crowley gets into the Rap Song of the Year race, where Cardi B or Rapsody could become the first woman ever to win. Also, 2017's breakout hit "Despacito" will become the first Spanish-language song to win Song of the Year, if it receives the honor.
Finally, the editor discusses the initiatives Billboard Pride is launching to celebrate LGBTQ artists and fans. In "Love Letters," musicians from the gay community pen heartfelt letters to their supporters about overcoming obstacles. The publication just received its first ever GLAAD Media Award nomination.
