It’s first time Eminem released an album & didn’t get Grammy nomination since “Infinite”

On December 5, 2018, Grammy announced nominations in 84 of its categories which honored recordings released between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018.

Eminem’s “Revival” was released on December 15, 2017 and “Kamikaze” was released on August 31, 2018. So, both albums were eligible for 2019 Grammy nominations but none of them received the recognition.

If we take a look at the history of Eminem’s career, this has never happened before. EVERY SINGLE release from Eminem received the nomination at the Grammys, including Encore, which is widely considered his worst album to this day. Below is the timeline of how Eminem’s catalogs have performed at the Grammys:

2000 – The Slim Shady LP gets nominated and wins Best Rap Album.

2001 – The Marshall Mathers LP gets nominated and wins Best Rap Album.

2003 – The Eminem Show gets nominated and wins Best Rap Album.

2006 – Encore gets nominated and loses to Kanye West’s Late Registration.

2010 – Relapse gets nominated and wins Best Rap Album.

2011 – Recovery gets nominated and wins Best Rap Album.

2015 – The Marshall Mathers LP 2 gets nominated and wins Best Rap Album.

2018 – Revival and Kamikaze didn’t get nominations.

Good thing is, “Lucky You,” featuring Joyner Lucas from Kamikaze is nominated for Best Rap Song at the Grammys 2019.
