Drake Thought The Weeknd Would Get Grammy Noms & Says The Awards 'May No Longer Matter'

He suggested that somebody "start something new."
The Weeknd's Grammy Snub Was Commented On By Drake & The Awards 'May No Longer Matter'

After The Weeknd's Grammy snub, Drake shared his thoughts on the situation and said that the awards "may no longer matter."

In an Instagram story posted on November 25, Drake spoke out about the Grammys and came to the defence of his fellow Canadian musician.

"I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards," he said.

Drake noted that we should "just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after."

He also said that he had thought The Weeknd would get a nomination for either album or song of the year and he made assumptions about how other awards would go that didn't end up actually happening.

"This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come," Drake said.

The Weeknd didn't get a single nomination for the 63rd annual Grammy Awards.

After they came out, he posted on social media about it and said, "The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency."

According to Billboard, his album After Hours debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and stayed there for a month and his song "Blinding Lights" also topped the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks.

Drake just celebrated his 35th birthday on October 24, and some of his friends really know how to give gifts.

While many celebrities wished the Canadian rapper a very happy birthday, one close friend, in particular, took the not-so-literal cake. Adel "Future the Prince" Nur, one of Drake's managers and co-executive producer to HBO's Euphoria, gave Drake a Rolls Royce Phantom as his birthday prezzie. And not only is it an extravagant gift, but also a thoughtful one.
