Grammy Awards Postponed Due To Coronavirus Concerns In The US 1

The 63rd Grammy Awards show which was billed to occur on the 31st of January,2020 has been postponed due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to reports, the show which is meant to be hosted by Trevor Noah has been rescheduled to happen in March 2021. The Grammys organizers had planned to go without having an audience and only allow presenters and performers to be on-site during the show. It was stated nominated acts like Nigeria’s Burna Boy and Wizkid who were nominated for Best Global Album and Video Of The Year respectively and others would not be able to be there either.

The statement signed by Harvey Mason jr., Chair & Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy; Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music, Live Events and Alternative Programming, CBS; and Ben Winston, Grammy Awards Executive Producer, Fulwell 73 Productions reads:

 

After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021.

The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show. We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors and especially this year’s nominees for their understanding, patience and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.

On Thursday (July 8), Interscope Records and Grade A announced that Juice Wrld’s The Party Never Ends project will be part of a trilogy. Lil Bibby previously teased as much with a tweet he posted a few weeks ago. Now, the information has been confirmed.

As part of the announcement, the labels also released a teaser trailer for the project. Filled with shades of purple, pink and some space imagery, the teaser trailer sees Juice Wrld in what looks like a variation of the healing chambers found in “Dragon Ball Z.” While in the chamber, an animated version of Juice can be seen with his eyes lighting up as a snippet of new music plays.

The release date for the new LP still hasn’t been announced, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if it came very soon. The album can be pre-saved now.

Not too much is known about the album, but Juice’s manager, Pete Jideonwo, has given a little bit of information on the project. In an interview from last month, he said the project would include a feature from Lil Uzi Vert, as well as other big names.

The one-year anniversary of Juice Wrld’s last posthumous project, Legends Never Die, is on Saturday. The project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after selling 497,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release. That number obviously speaks to an enormous fan base, one that was built from the late rapper’s emotional transparency and knack for melodic tunes. After his tragic death of an accidental drug overdose in December 2019, the number of Juice Wrld fans has only continued to grow with his catalog.

When this new trilogy concludes, there will be four posthumous Juice Wrld projects online. Watch the teaser for The Party Never Ends for yourself just below.
