- SZA lost all five Grammy categories she was nominated for.
- Fans are outraged.
- It’s being compared to last year, where Rihanna lost all eight Grammys she received nominations for.
SZA is one of the most promising new artists in the music industry, with her album “Ctrl” amassing critical acclaim. To cap off her year, she was nominated for five Grammy awards.
On Sunday night, she won none of them.
Fans are outraged. SZA was considered a lock for the best new artist category, at least, which ended up going to Alessia Cara. She was also nominated for best R&B performance, best R&B song, best urban contemporary album, and best rap/sung performance.

She’s even being compared to Rihanna, who was nominated in eight categories at the 2017 Grammys — and won none of them.

The good news is, being compared to Rihanna is a reward on its own.
