The Weeknd has called the Grammy Awards corrupt after being overlooked for nominations in all categories this year.
The three-time Grammy winner took to his social media to voice his disdain against the award show. He topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Blinding lights” and “Heartless”.
“The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…,” he wrote on social media.
Is The Weeknd’s rant about the Grammys valid, we can surely expect a myriad of reactions as this story unfolds. We’ve already heard that Drake has taken The Weeknds side in this matter stating that the Grammys have robbed the Weeknd by refusing to nominate the Blinding Lights hit maker.
See below all statements by Drake in support of The Weeknd and his lost faith in the Grammys.
“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after,” Drake wrote. “It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can’t change their ways.
Drake continued by saying…..
“The other day I said @theweeknd was a lock for either album or song of the year along with countless other reasonable assumptions and it just never goes that way,” the 34-year-old “Hotline Bling” performer continued. “This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come.”
