Chris Brown No Longer Blacklisted, Gets Grammy Nod

2 Dec

Its seems that Chris Brown’s miracle comeback is officially complete. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards Nominations were announced last night in Los Angeles. Brown received three nominations that included “Best Contemporary R&B Album- Graffiti;” “Best Rap/Song Collaboration – Deuces;” “Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group- Take My Time w/ Tank.” A year ago Brown might not have even received an invite to the Grammys, more less be nominated for multiple awards. Breezy’s had a difficult time regaining his place in the music industry and Hollywood. But it looks like black-balling Brown is a thing of the past. Glad everyone is ready to move forward.

I think that’s a little interesting since singles from Trey’s album dominated the radio airwaves. But Songz wasn’t the only one dissed. Alicia Keys’ Element of Freedom also didn’t receive any nods. Keys did snatch three nominations for her song with Jay-Z “Empire State of Mind.”
