Grammys Black Music Collective Addresses Controversy

The dissension regarding the 2021 Grammy Award nominations rolls on, but The Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective Honorary Chairs have issued a statement to the Black Music Collective Leadership Council. Many have complained that there is a lack of women and Black representation in this year’s nominees, leading some such as Drake or Charlamagne The God to speak openly about the division between the Grammys and the culture. Nicki Minaj recently spoke about her snub back in 2012 when she didn’t win with numerous singles still on the charts, and The Weeknd had one of the most celebrated albums of the year with After Hours but he didn’t receive any nominations, at all.
