I don’t believe the The Recording Academy will deny selecting Halsey or Lukas Graham for Best New Artist at next year’s Grammy Awards.
Although Adele is primarily noted for her voice, it’s all about the lyrics and music, that make a song. As popular as she is today, my love for her has grown, since she initially took the world stage. Dreezy has taken the world of music by storm and has been hailed as the “Princess of Chicago Rap.” Her album “No Hard Feelings” dropped this past summer, and she’s also featured on Aluna George’s track “Mean What I Mean,” from his latest, “I Remember.”
It’s free, open 24/7 and contains a magnificent archive of African American culture ranging from afros to blaxploitation movies. Is the Museum of Uncut Funk a step ahead of the new Smithsonian?
They actually haven’t. A band that’s been around since 1995, they’ve performed at the ceremony, presented there, even announced Tom DeLonge returning to the band there.
I find I have to search for new music every year. Apart from those that are promoted heavily, generally consumers are left in the dark, unless they go surfing online or hear about something by word of mouth. Last year one of my favorites, that seems like it will never stop getting exposure, is the song “Rise Up” by Andra Day.

Pamela Thomas is the Co-Owner and Co-Curator of the Museum Of UnCut Funk (museumofuncutfunk.com), an avid collector of Black memorabilia and an expert on 1970’s Black culture.
Pamela Thomas remembers the moment when she realized her hobby was a little different from knitting. It was when she found herself trying to get to the post office before it closed, so she could send off more than $2,000 in money orders to fund her “addiction.”
