"Lost Without U" was everywhere this year, and everyone from Oprah Winfrey to the thuggiest thug was feeling this track. I wouldn't be surprised if Dubya even sang this little ditty to Laura in their private moments. OK, maybe I would be surprised--and I shudder at the thought--but you cannot deny that "Lost Without U" was the song.
So can someone, anyone explain to me why this track is not a contender for Record of the Year and/or Song of the Year? I'm sorry, but you cannot tell me that Rihanna's "Umbrella" is a better song. More popular? Perhaps, depending on who you ask. More annoying? Yes. More better? No. More deserving of a Grammy nomination? Hell to the naw. Then if we want to take a stroll on over to the R&B categories, he could have easily gotten nods for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, and Best Contemporary R&B Album. Robin Thicke should have been been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards right alongside Kanye West and Amy Winehouse. Better luck with the next album, Robin.
