Jazmine Sullivan is trending as folks have taken to the streets of Twitter to express their outrage over Doja Cat winning “Favorite R&B Artist” and “Favorite R&B Album” at the 2021 American Music Awards.
In the categories, Doja was up against Jazmine, GIVĒON, H.E.R., SZA, Jhené Aiko, and Queen Naija and it appears the good folks over at the AMAs may have misclassified the Planet Her singer’s music.
Many feel Jazmine Sullivan was robbed because her Heaux Tales album is pretty fantastic.
Listen: ‘Heaux Tales’
At the end of the day, I don’t expect award shows like the American Music Awards to understand Black music or classify it correctly.
The Soul Train Awards air on Sunday, November 28 at 8/7c on BET.
