Seems Drake is no longer boycotting the Grammys. The rapper has submitted his album with 21 Savage, “Her Loss,” for Grammy consideration. The decision proves surprising as he has formerly renounced the Grammys.
Another popular song, “Spin Bout U,” has gotten several submissions as well in the categories of Best Melodic Rap Performance, Record of The Year, and Song of The Year.
He added, “It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up, but they just won’t change their ways.”
Drake stressed the need for a new music awards organization.
“The other day, I said @theweeknd was a lock for either album or song of the year, along with countless other reasonable assumptions, and it just never goes that way. 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 wrote.
The Weeknd expressed his disappointment as well. He wrote on X, “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…”

Besides his own albums, Drizzy has opportunities to be nominated with fellow rapper Travis Scott on his hit “Meltdown” and Young Thug’s “Oh U Want,” since both songs have been submitted in the Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance categories. Before his boycott, Drake had won a total of five Grammys.
