Robin Thicke Challenges Pop & EMD Artists For Grammy’s Song of the Year, Tamar Braxton Leads R&B With 3 Noms

This year, Robin Thicke was the man across all music genres with his hit single "Blurred Lines." He will continue to battle artists from different categories after receiving a Grammy nomination for the "Record of the Year." The Pharrell Williams-produced single has been the no.1 song on the Urban AC (Adult Contemporary) chart for not just weeks, but nearly four months.

Thicke was also nominated for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album awards.

Tamar Braxton went from singer to reality star back to singer. The leap from TV screens to the performing stage has paid off as Tamar, like Thicke, earned three Grammy nominations including Best R&B Song, Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best R&B Performance. She is proving reality television can benefit artists that want to have a serious career rather than being a socialite.

The list of the nominee for the Best R&B Performance includes Tamar Braxton (Love And War), Anthony Hamilton (Best of Me), Hiatus Kaiyote (Nakamarra), Miguel (How Many Drinks?) and Snarky Puppy (Something).

The list of the nominee for the Best Traditional R&B Performance includes Gary Clark Jr. (Please Come Home), Fantasia (Get It Right), Maysa (Quiet Fire), Gregory Porter (Hey Laura), and Ryan Shaw (Yesterday).

The list of the nominee for the Best R&B Song includes Best of Me (Anthony Hamilton), Love And War (Tamar Braxton), Only One (PJ Morton), Pusher Love Girl (Justin Timberlake), and Without Me (Fantasia).

The list of the nominee for the Best Urban Contemporary Album includes Tamar Braxton's "Love and War," Fantasia "Side Effects Of You," Salaam Remi "One: In The Chamber," Rihanna's "Unapologetic," and Mack Wilds' "New York: A Love Story."

The list of the nominee for the Best R&B Album includes Faith Evans' "R&B Divas," Alicia Keys' "Girl On Fire," John Legend's "Love In the Future," Chrisette Michele's "Better," and TGT's "Three Kings."
