 - Music - Nov 25 2020 SHARE ON:

Albeit being potentially one of the most influential artists of this generation, The Weeknd has been snubbed from all Grammy nominations this year and took to Twitter to call the organisation ‘corrupt.’ 

The artist had engaged in heated debate with the Grammys over the idea of performing at both the awards and the Super Bowl, an iconic performance usually given by high-profile artists and bands.

His single ‘Blinding Lights’ is the longest-running top 10 single in Billboard Hot 100 history with his last album ‘After Hours’ receiving acclaim across the board, which begs the question, why was The Weeknd snubbed?
