Nicki Minaj Receives Zero Grammy Nominations Despite Rankings

Nicki Minaj Snubbed For Grammy Award Show in 2023

Despite earning a number one ranking  song and breaking countless records, Nicki Minaj received zero nominations for the 2023 award show.

Minaj, who has never won a Grammy, previously competed as a soloist in rap; her one pop nomination was for “Bang Bang” with Jessie J and Ariana Grande. The artist recently got into it with a self acknowledged “Barb” in Latto over being placed in pop category instead of hip hop in the submissions.

Nicki Minaj, who has received 10 Grammy nominations during her musical career, hit out at the awards in October after revealing that her song was moved from the rap category into the pop category for consideration, a decision she did not agree with.

As the awards for the 2023 Grammy Awards were announced, it became apparent that Minaj had failed to receive any nominations this year. Minaj was vocal about her displeasure with the Academy moving “Super Freaky Girl” from rap to pop. Minaj would have had a far easier time being nominated in rap than in pop. Of course, the Academy’s role is not to put records in the category where the artist is most likely to best nominated or win, but to put them in the category in which they fit best. We’ll never know if Minaj would have been nominated in rap, but we do know she wasn’t nominated in pop.

In the United States, “Super Freaky Girl” debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for the chart dated August 27, 2022, making it Minaj’s third number one song on the chart and her first unaccompanied by another featured artist.

Check out the reactions below.

Nicki took to social media to voice her disapproval about her single, “Super Freaky Girl”, last month after reportedly being considered for the 2023 GRAMMYs’ pop categories, despite submitting the song to be included in the rap categories. In making her point, she said that Latto’s “Big Energy” should also be removed from rap categories.
