Grammy 2022: Drake Gets Withdrawn From The Award
Some weeks ago, the Canadian/American singer Drake got two nominations for next year Grammy award; it was announced that 35-year-old Drake had earned himself two nods this year – Best Rap Album for Certified Lover Boy and Best Rap Performance for his Future & Young Thug collab track, “Way 2 Sexy. ”
According to Variety, the father of one and his management team have made the decision to withdraw his submissions, with the Grammys choosing to honour the rapper’s request. He has yet to address the choice publicly, and at the time, his motivation remains unclear.
“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 artist that exist now and the ones that come after,” he wrote on Instagram at the time. “It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just won’t change their ways. 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.”
