Was Chloe X Halle’s debut album Ungodly Hour snubbed at the Grammy awards?
Chloe X Halle’s debut album, Ungodly Hour, was met with critical acclaim and their stunning virtual performances were the talk of quarantine.
Their Tiny Desk performance of “Wonder What She Thinks Of Me” garnered more than 2.4 million views, so it was no surprise that they were nominated for Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best Progressive R&B Album.
Although the singers didn’t win they thanked their fans for the continuous love and support on Twitter. “Feeling so honored to be nominated!! thank you all so much for continuing to listen to the music,” they said. “Love you all so much.”
Despite their graceful and humble response, fans sounded off about the Grammy snub.

Ungodly Hour was a testament to the blood, sweat, and tears Chloe X Halle put into perfecting their craft over the year. Chloe positioned herself as one of the hottest female producers since Missy Elliott because she produced 3 out of 13 tracks and helped produce 7 more.
Mant great Black artists don’t have Grammys including Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj and more. Nas won his first-ever Grammy on Sunday night following a decades-long career and multiple critically-acclaimed albums.
Ungodly Hour lost the Best Traditional R&B Performance Grammy to Ledisi’s “Anything For You.” Thundercat’s “It Is What It Is” what victorious in the Best Progressive R&B Album category.
