Nicki Minaj takes her craft seriously and is fed up with the Grammy Awards. The New York rapper went to Instagram to air her frustrations and said the Recording Academy put her hit single “Super Freaky Girl” in the wrong category.
The official nomination list for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards won’t officially be announced until November 15.
Already, some artists are fed up with the academy, including Nicki, who wants fairness for a song that was put in the wrong category.
Nicki says her hit song “Super Freaky Girl” is Hip-Hop, not Pop, which was the genre chosen for the song. She went on Instagram to air her frustrations in a nearly 20-minute video titled “Dear Grammys.”
Other artists, including Bruno Mars, announced that Silk Sonic has decided not to submit their album completely. Their album, An Evening with Silk, was released in November 2021 and is set to be a top contender at the award show.
They had previously won “Record of The Year” at the April Grammy Award ceremony.
The Recording Academy may have missed the mark, yet again since Nicki isn’t the only one frustrated.
Other artists have chosen to boycott the ceremony in previous years.
Among those artists is Drake, who withdrew from the ceremony this year and was reportedly up for “Best Album of the Year” for “Certified Lover Boy.”
The Weeknd also threw in the towel, calling them out for snubbing his record-breaking album “Blinding Lights.”
If Nicki chooses not to withdraw her song, this could be her first Grammy win.
The ceremony’s official date is Sunday, February 5, 2023.
Bruno Mars recently made a rare move as an artist.
The multi-talented singer has withdrawn R&B duo Silk Sonic from the 2023 Grammy nominations.
Bruno Mars and singer Anderson .Paak, also known as the R&B duo Silk Sonic, have succeeded in the short span of working together.
In a surprising move, Bruno has withdrawn the duo from Grammy Award consideration, according to Rolling Stone.
