* Drake joined the outcry over the 2021 Grammy nominations after The Weeknd called the Recording Academy « corrupt. ». ”
The 2021 Grammy nominee line-up was announced last week, and The Weeknd received no nominations, although TMZ points out that its single « Blinding Lights » topped the charts and its album « After Hours » hit until Jan..
The Weeknd responded to the dissident in a tweet after the nominees for the 63rd. Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday.
Drake also took the time to talk about how the annual Music Awards show has a « separation » from recognition of « effective music ». ”
« I think we should stop being shocked every year by the disconnection between high-impact music and these awards and just accept that what was once the highest form of recognition is for what is now and what is now existing artist may no longer matter that comes after, ”wrote Drake in his Instagram story.
Drake has won four Grammys, but even he turned down the on-stage ceremony at the 2019 show.
« It’s like having a relative who you always expect to get better, but he just can’t change his style, » Drake continued. “The other day I said @theweeknd was a ban on the album or song of the year, along with a myriad of other reasonable assumptions, and it just never works. ”
Drake added that now is “a great time” for someone to “start something new that we can build over time and pass on to future generations. ”
Meanwhile, TMZ reports that The Weeknd’s Grammy nudge may have to be due with him to headline next year’s Super Bowl, but Harvey Mason Jr. . , Chairman of the Recording Academy and Interim President / CEO, tells PEOPLE that this is not the case.
In a statement to release, he said, « We understand The Weeknd is disappointed not to be nominated, » said Mason Jr. . says. « I was surprised and can empathize with his feelings. His music this year has been excellent and his contributions to the music community and the wider world deserve everyone’s admiration. ”
According to TMZ report, Grammy officials gave The Weeknd an ultimatum between the two events and came to an agreement after heated negotiations.
« We were thrilled to find out he was going to play at the upcoming Super Bowl, and we would have loved to have him perform on the GRAMMY stage the weekend before, » said Mason Jr. . adds in his statement. “Unfortunately there are fewer nominations each year than the number of deserved artists. But as the only music award chosen by like-minded people, we will continue to recognize and celebrate excellence in music while shedding light on the many amazing artists that make up our global community. ”
« To be clear, voting in all categories ended well before The Weeknd’s performance at the Super Bowl was announced. This could not have influenced the nomination process in any way. All GRAMMY nominees are recognized by the electoral body for their outstanding achievements and we congratulate them all, ”it continues.
* Lil Wayne has published page A of his mixtape « No Ceilings 3 » and contains a reference to President Donald Trump.
Weezy calls Trump on the track « Life Is Good, » originally popularized by Future and Drake.
In the original version, Drake raps: « Work as usual on the weekend As usual at the end – how do you swear they walked past us, they do too much, I didn’t do my taxes, I’m too cranky »
Wayne’s version is: Work on my demons, that’s beautiful, Bae from that rice, she’s super easy, I smoke, she says, watch out, she’s doing too much. I didn’t do my taxes with Trump.
The title comes a month after Wayne approved Trump’s re-election. In October, he used social media to talk to #POTUS about the platinum plan for black Americans and giving the community real ownership.
« I just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus, apart from what he’s been doing with criminal reforms so far. The platinum plan will give the community real ownership. « . He listened to what we had to say today and assured that he will and can do it. 🤙🏾 “he tweeted.
Weezy says he had a great meeting with Trump and shared a photo of them smiling with thumbs up together. He said at the time that he is an advocate of Trump based on his track record of criminal justice reform and he’s excited about Trump’s platinum plan.
Trump’s platinum plan would pump $ 500 billion into black communities and provide better access to equitable education and jobs.
Lil Wayne was recently charged with a crime resulting from an old case of his private jet being searched.
« Wait a minute, Trump has 63 days left, call him Wayne. Put the fool on the phone. They will try to put you in jail for supporting Trump. 😳 “, 50 Cent labeled a photo of a headline about the case.
