The Weeknd’s After Hours was released during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year. So it is only reasonable that listeners of that album are not pleased with the announcement from the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards nominations on Tuesday.
The singer received zero nominations for the annual event. It seemed odd since The Weeknd’s twitter account posted a day before the announcement a trailer and the r & b star’s message to fans.
just wanted to thank the fans for committing to this journey with me. i love you guys so much, none of this is possible without ya’ll seriously. XO

The Weeknd and his Grammy snub did not go unnoticed by his fellow artists such as Kid Cudi.
Genuinely can’t think of a reason why he wouldn’t even be nominated besides… https://t.co/5gvLQZtJOx
