Drake, four-time Grammy award winner who has also received 44 nominations, has expressed his dismay at this year’s Grammys nominations.
Many notable artistes have been left off of the list, including The Weeknd,
whose millions of fans reacted with shock and surprise at the Grammy selection.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, the artiste said it’s time to move on past the Grammy and time for a new Award machinery. “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 went on to say that trying to influence the Grammy to act with fairness and
integrity is a lost cause. “It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can’t change their ways.”
