Canada's very own 6ix God just cleaned up in the Grammy nomination department. Drake was nominated seven times for the 2019 music awards, including Best Album for "Scorpion", Song of The Year for "God's Plan", and Best Rap Song for both "Sicko Mode" and "God's Plan".
This is a huge accomplishment for Drake, who is in second place for the number of nominations this year. The only problem is now that the nominations have been announced, people are coming after Drake saying he doesn't deserve it. Even his own fans.
Ever since the list of potential Grammy winners came out this morning, people have been taking to Twitter to show how they really feel about Drake's seven nominations and they aren't holding back.

While some people are more general in simply stating that Drake doesn't actually deserve a Grammy, others give a bit more details. Some people believe that he isn't talented and simply just says his songs, while others think his music is only for his Canadian supporters who would love him no matter what.

you know what i'm gonna say it.. drake doesn't deserve all those grammy nominations he makes music for locals with no expectations— eleni👄 (@holylarents) 7 December 2018
Even some of his own fans are coming for Drake. One fan specifically put themselves out on the line saying he doesn't deserve the album of the year for "Scorpion".
As a Drake fan, idgaf Scorpion doesn’t deserve a Grammy https://t.co/udxb1XWIdj— jivegod (@liljivegod) 7 December 2018
Others are calling out the entire award show on behalf of artists that they think got snubbed this year. Some popular names that come up are Ariana Grande or BTS, who each didn't receive a single nomination.
Keep in mind: they didnt nominate SWEETENER, REPUTATION or QUEEN for album of the year. Just hip hop mainstream garbage like Drake and Cardi B. Just to appeal to the masses that will jerk off to the fact that their faves got a Grammy that they didn't deserve— David 🇵🇹 (@soliteary) 7 December 2018
WHERES DEMI? ARIANA? BTS? PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY FUCKIN DESERVE IT? I CAN'T WITH THE GRAMMY'S ANYMORE— zara (@demispicklesss) 7 December 2018
Regardless of anyone's opinion on the matter, the numbers say it all. Drake was the most streamed artist on Spotify and Apple Music in 2018 and "Scorpion" has dominated the Billboard charts since it came out this past summer. He may have some haters out there, but clearly, the world loves his music.
The Grammys will be held on February 10th, 2019 at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California.
