Drake Draws Breaks on the Grammys
Drake has requested that the Recording Academy remove two of his nominations from the final round of voting.
According to the Associated Press, two individuals familiar with Drake's decision confirmed that the four-time Grammy winner's request was honoured by the academy.
The Grammys have already deleted Drake from the list of nominees on their website.
Like a growing number of American artists, Drake has previously chastised the Grammy Awards. The rapper has expressed his disappointment at not being nominated for an award outside of the rap category.
After 'God's Plan' won the best rap song in 2019, he also took aim at the Grammy Awards' lagging reputation during his acceptance speech. It seems the time has come time for the hashtag #grammyssucks.
On January 31, the Grammy Awards will be held in Los Angeles.
