The Weekend accused Grammys for being ‘corrupt’ after getting zero nominations
The Weekend is not taking the Grammy shutout very well.
Just a few hours after the Recording Academy announced the nominations for the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, and was revealed that the Canadian pop singer hadn’t earned a single recognition—The Weekend took to twitter to address his 13.5 million followers. “The Grammy’s remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency,” he tweeted.
Not just Weekend, but everyone was shocked to hear that an artist so popular; who creates amazing music was left behind like this and relatively mediocre artists were nominated. Despite his hit 2020 album “After Hours” or his chart topping single “Blinding Lights”, the singer was not given a place in the Grammys nomination list.
Based on data tracking, “After Hours” has managed to sell 460,000 copies and has been streamed over 1.7 billion times – which is good enough to make it the third most consumed album of the year.
