I'm bummed that John Mayer didn't get a single nomination this year. Born and Raised has been his best album yet.

i mean, he gets a nomination via his work with frank ocean, but it's absurd that born and raised didn't net him as much recognition as it should've.

He does get a nod thanks to Frank Ocean's AOTY nomination, but I imagined he would net at least one nomination on his own for Born and Raised.

Yeah, both of these. Not too much of a surprise though, as B&R didn't have that much mainstream presence compared to his other albums.

The timing of the record hurt his chances though, with pretty much zero promotion due to his vocal issues, mediocre sales compared to his previous records, and not a single song making a wave on the radio or otherwise.

I wouldn't mind if he at least made an appearance playing guitar with Frank Ocean, if he were to perform.
