(Hypebot) — Halsey has joined Drake, Elton John, and others in calling out the Grammys for their snub of The Weeknd.
Canadian R&B icon The Weeknd took to social media to accuse the Recording Academy of being “corrupt” after he did not receive a single nomination for the 63rd annual Grammy Awards.
“The Grammys remain corrupt,” the Weeknd tweeted after the nominations were announced. “You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency.”
A 3-time Grammy winner, The Weekend is having a successful 2020 following the release of his fourth studio album After Hours which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and stayed there for four consecutive weeks. He’s also just been announced as the headliner for next year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.
