The Artist: Tyrese
The Nomination: Open Invitation for "Best R&B Album"
Why It Surprised Us: Does anyone even remember when this album came out? We didn't. And, that's not a knock on Tyrese. It's just that this album came out all the way back in November 2011, which is basically a decade ago in the music world. Good for Tyrese, though. Say what you want about him but he's been putting in work for years now and deserves some recognition for it.
