Drake withdraws his name from Grammy nominations – The HuffPost

Drake named Artist of the Decade by the Billboard Music Awards on May 23, 2021, at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, USA.

MUSIC – Drake’s turn to snub the Grammy Awards. The canadian rap superstar asked the Disc Academy to withdraw its two nominations for the Grammy Awards. His request was accepted by the organizers since he no longer appears in the list since December 6. The rapper was nominated in two “rap” categories for his album Certified Lover Boy released in September 2021.

True tidal wave, the album of Drake had sold 613,000 copies in the first week and had made more than 153 million streams in 24 hours. But despite its success, the Canadian singer’s opus was not named in the generalist categories, by far the most prominent.

No explanation was given by Drake, nor by his entourage about his request for withdrawal of nominations. According to AFP, a source close to the artist indicated that this decision had been taken by mutual agreement by Drake and his team and that the organizers of the Grammy Awards had accepted. The Recording Academy has confirmed the removal of the artist from the list of nominees for the ceremony to be held in Los Angeles on January 31.

Drake snubbed by the Grammys?

Drake has been hooked with the Academy of the record in the past, which he accuses of snubbing it, and of confining it to the “rap” category because of his skin color. The rapper, one of the most influential artists of his generation, has won only four Grammy Awards during his career.

During the 2019 ceremony, Drake criticized the Grammys for not treating black hip-hop artists to their fairness. “It’s a sector that sometimes depends on a small group of people who do not understand what a Métis kid from Canada can have to say,” he said, receiving his only prize of the evening.

Other black artists, like The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, and Jay-Z, have also blasted the Grammys’ picks in recent years, accusing them of leaving black musicians behind.
