Grammy Awards Add Three More Categories in Rap and R&B

The Grammy Awards already had too many categories at 101, but that has not stopped them from adding three new categories in the rap and R&B fields as well as the addition of a dance field.

The changes include the division of the Best Rap Vocal category into Best Female Rap Solo Vocal Performance and Best Male Rap Solo Vocal Performance; the addition of Best Contemporary R&B Album and Best Urban/Alternative Performance as well as the renaming of Best Traditional R&B Album to Best Traditional R&B Performance in the R&B Field; and the addition of the Dance Music Field, which will feature the Best Dance Recording (previously housed in the Pop Music Field). The changes are the results of the Recording Academy's annual trustee's meeting.
