The Grammys announced a rule change on Friday, specifically that they are doing away with the “secret” nomination review committees.
According to sources, the “secret” review committee might have played a part in keeping The Weeknd from receiving any Grammy nominations this year.
The Weeknd said that due to him not receiving any nominations, even though he had one of the biggest albums and the most streamed song, he would boycott the Grammys going forward.
It looks like their change of rules hasn’t changed his mind either.
The artist had this to say in response to the rule change, “I remain uninterested in being a part of the Grammys, especially with their own admission of corruption for all these decades. I will not be submitting in the future”.
