Some of the greatest artists of all time came out of Motown Records. We’re talking the likes of Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, and The Temptations – to name a few.

Motown churned out Black artist after Black artist who became icons of music in a time when Black people were combating overt racism on the daily. The legacy is special and it deserves to be honored.

That’s why when we saw Rap Up report about a Motown tribute at the upcoming Grammy’s, we were thrilled, that’s until we saw who was allegedly going to be in the tribute… Jennifer Lopez.

Yes, you read that right.

It isn’t clear in what capacity, but to us she is close to the bottom of the list of people who should be in the tribute. Don’t get us wrong, we love JLo too, but not to represent this huge piece of our culture.

And we’re the not the only ones who feel this way:

Hopefully this report is false, but if it isn’t, what do you think about the possible tribute? Let us know in the comments.

  1. J lo and motown😝. Where is Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce etc. These award shows are getting lousy and boring every year. 8 stopper watching when the blacks were left out of the running.

    Come on now. There ate quite a few Motown artists syill living. The American Music Awards did a bum job with the Aretha Franklin tribute This is even worse. #jlonomotown

    Who is producing this tribute? I would guess that since it is, or was, a Black show that the tribute would be sponsored and produced by someone of the Black community and that would suggest that she was chosen by one of our Black counterparts. I believe there are WAY TOO many Black artists for someone who does not represent the culture to be featured in this capacity. And these other artists are WAY MORE talented than she is. Doesn’t make any sense. I can see her being a guest at the event, but definitely not a feature!!!
