At the request of the Canadian rapper himself, two Grammy nominations were removed from the list. The organization of the most important American Music Awards confirmed that Drake no longer had a chance at the Music Awards.
Drake was nominated for Best Rapper Performance and Best Rap Album (Adopted beloved boy). Since the Grammys organization requires record companies to nominate artists each year, Drake’s request is great. New York times He writes based on their sources that Drake and his managers have requested that his name be removed from the nomination lists. The organization behind the awards did not comment further.
The 35-year-old singer and rapper has repeatedly criticized organizing the Grammys in the past. For example, a year ago, he suggested introducing new music awards, having thought that The Weeknd was not nominated for a Grammy. In the statistics of the best-selling albums and songs of 2020, The Weeknd was all over the place. “We’re shocked every year that these awards don’t line up with what’s really popular now and have a real impact musically and we should stop doing that,” Drake said.
The 64th Grammy Awards will be presented on January 31 in Los Angeles.
