Submissions for the 2023 Grammys Awards are in… and they’re creating a lot of drama. Several of our favorite recording artists are feuding with the Recording Academy and refusing to submit their music or openly expressing their criticism of the nomination process.
We get at least one star feuding with the Grammys over wrong category inclusion. This time around, it’s Nicki Minaj, who believes her song “Super Freaky Girl” should be nominated in rap and not pop categories, where it was classified by the Grammy bosses.
Drake withdrew his album “Certified Lover Boy” from Grammy consideration last year and his criticism of the Recording Academy continues. He didn’t submit his latest album Honestly, Nevermind for consideration either.
The Weekend decided to boycott the Grammys after his seminal album After Hours shockingly received zero nominations. He’s making good on his promise, and he refused to submit his latest record Dawn FM for Grammy consideration.
There doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between Silk Sonic and the Grammys, but they won’t be competing at the next year’s ceremony. After winning four Grammy trophies this year, the musical duo announced they’re withdrawing from award consideration.
