“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after,” Drake wrote. “It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can’t change their ways.”
He also called for the start of a new award show. “This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come.”
Drake has been nominated 47 times and won four Grammys throughout his career. In 2017, he decided not to submit his project More Life for any 2018 Grammy awards.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards are set to take place Jan. 31 in Los Angeles. Jon Batiste leads with 11 nominations, followed by Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, and H.E.R. with eight each.
