Months back, singer The Weeknd announced his decision not to do anything with the Grammy Awards because of what he see as an outlandish system. This year, the Grammys has announced a few changes but, The Weeknd says he actually isn’t content with them.
In the wake of being closed out of the 63rd yearly Grammy Awards nominations notwithstanding having a great and successful album, the artist blamed the Recording Academy for being “corrupt” and promised to blacklist future ceremonies organized by the Academy, including not presenting his work for consideration.
The Recording Academy recently shared a progression of changes including the “secret” selection audit that many hold to reprimand for The Weeknd not getting a solitary nomination in spite of his single “Blinding Lights” and the single his 2020 collection was named for, “After Hours,” being gigantic streaming hits and widely praised.
The Weeknd is of the view that the industry and public need to see the straightforward system genuinely affecting everything for the success to be celebrated.
In the mean time, the Grammys’ new changes will ideally be a positive move for the eventual fate of the award and give the artist local area the regard it merits with a clear democratic interaction.
