During her October interview with Los Angeles Times, Ice Spice mentioned wanting her debut album to win at the award show. She shared, “A Grammy would mean the moon, the sun, the Earth. No, for real, like every star in the galaxy. I just know I’m gonna get one. I’m just gonna keep trying, you know? I’m just grateful to be in the conversation.”
SZA, who clinched nine nods, similarly spoke about the ceremony during her recent Rolling Stone cover story. The songstress exclaimed, “The Grammy room is one of the weirdest rooms ever. There is so much wanting in there. Wanting to be noticed, wanting to be, like, acknowledged, to win, wanting to just be amongst n**gas in the room, wanting to feel valuable or validated.”
Drake, Summer Walker, Coi Leray, 21 Savage, Chris Brown, and Kendrick Lamar are among the several names listed. The event itself is slated to take place on Feb. 4, 2024 at Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena.
